|Summary||14360: Add new global setting to define start value for answer codes|
|Description||Some years ago answer codes at Limesurvey started at "1". That has changed to "A1" which makes it really hard to analyze data when exporting answer codes. The codes are not numeric anymore.|
While at earlier versions it was just 3 clicks to export to excel and get the AVG value for a certain column, you now have to adjust answer codes first and turn "A1" into "1".
As discussed at the DEV meeting a new global setting "Answer code start value" would be very useful. Then the user can define the start value and the system could adjust follow up codes accordingly.
Possible start values and follow up codes:
0 (used for special statistics as I was told): 1 , 2 , 3, ...
1 (the old default value): 2 , 3 , 4 ...
A1 (the current one): A2 , A3 , A4 , ....
"yes" (string): Could use "yes1", "yes2", ... ?
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Can be only in config.php file or must be in GUI ?
What about sub question code ?
|I think this should be a GUI setting. A very simple text input field with max length = X characters being available at the Global Settings.|
|max lenght of answer var is 5, then if user pout ABCD : he can set (automatically) only 36 answers ;)|
About export : https://gitlab.com/SondagesPro/ExportAndStats/exportTripleS/blob/master/exportTripleS.php#L54
It can be a export option too : export order OR export assessment value OR export code etc …
This is mostly about survey design because it also affects survey which make use of answer codes at conditions. Take for example a rating questin with 5 optiins from very good to very bad and you only want to show a comment question "Why did you rate XYZ so bad" if there was a rating of 4 or 5. The relevance equation would be
questioncode.NAOK gt 3
@c_schmitz, according to
Can you please decide whether to add this to LS 4?
This will be resolved by new feature "answer option template" in LS4. Please close when implemented.
|Possibly solvable by instead exporting assessment values for answer options, BUT might make survey creation more tedious.|
|It's not part of the RC, but it is on the List for the final release|
@ollehar, I think we can close this one since it is implemented at LS 4?
Please double check if we also have documentation at the manual on how the new setting works.
|Where is the manual part about this feature ?|
|No manual, not finished ;) Keep it open. Maybe we need a new state? "Documentation"?|
Or a category : maybe create a category Manual.
And when a new feature is done : create the related mantis (child of)
