Summary15026: Omit ambiguous characters from token
Description

In tokens you can specify the length, but not the characters that are used.

In our use case we have difficulties using the characters: O (cipital o), 0 (zero), l (lower case L), I (capital i) and 1 (one) that are ambiguous (depending a bit on the font that is used to show them).

In our use case these tokens are sent by mail (on paper) and users have to type them in like a password. Ambiguous characters then influence the response rate in a negative way: once entered a wrong code, people tend to turn away.

We propose to change the tokens in such a way that ambiguous characters are replaced.

We will make a pull request as soon as this is discussed enough here.

This is really a needed option, most of https://github.com/LimeSurvey/LimeSurvey/pull/1104

But : my answer : Ā«Such feature must be in pluginĀ» https://github.com/LimeSurvey/LimeSurvey/pull/1104#issuecomment-408848641

Seems i'm the only one

If we accept only numeric, why not all the other : https://github.com/LimeSurvey/LimeSurvey/pull/1104#issuecomment-488587717
