Summary07518: Attributes for survey (in addtion to attributes for tokens)
Description

I run many surveys that use closed access and multiple token attributes for each user. I recycle several of these surveys over the course of an academic year, or from year to year.

In these surveys, there are several places where some text should change for each run of the survey, but should be consistent within the run. For example, one survey is used to collect vacation travel plans from students. The name of the vacation changes every time I run the survey, but it appears in several places within the survey and in the invitation emails. Similarly, I specify dates (used for input validation) that are the same for all students but change for each vacation.

Currently, I manage this by using a token attribute to specify the text, and refer to that attribute throughout the survey and email text as appropriate. This works, but it requires that I add the text as an attribute to the token for each student, even though it's the same for each student.

I would like to suggest a feature that would create a set of attributes for the survey, in addition to the attributes for each token.
