- 6 Statistics
This type collects gender information ("Male" or "Female") from the user.
This option allows the survey administrators to request their respondents to answer to certain survey questions. If the mandatory questions are not answered, the respondents will not be able to proceed further. If you have a question with multiple subquestions and you require only certain subquestions to be answered, use the minimum answer attribute located under the Logic tab.
- No (default)
If the value of the relevance equation is "1" or "true", the question is "relevant" in the survey context, i.e. it is shown to the survey participant. If not, the question is hidden. Any survey question allows you to specify a relevance equation. This function is the successor of conditions and supports much more complex conditional logic.
Whenever you save the relevance equation, it is evaluated and syntax-highlighted. Any errors will be color coded so that you can quickly detect and fix them.
Any equation that makes use of the Expression Manager syntax, without surrounding curly braces.
Here are good examples of syntax highlighting.
Hide tip (hide_tip)
Most questions will usually include a tip that says "Please choose one of the following options" or a hint text on how to fill out the question. This attribute allows you to turn off or on this tips/hints.
These tips/hints include validation criteria messages (such as min/max number of answers, min/max/equals sum value). If hide_tip is enabled, these messages will be hidden. However, if the user enters invalid data, the tips will appear. They will be coloured in red, getting changed to green once the validation criteria are met.
- On - the tips/hints are hidden;
- Off (default).
Question theme (question_theme)
It allows you to use customized themes for the respective question.
- Your created question themes which are located under the Question themes in the Themes panel.
If enabled, the question will always be hidden - it will not be displayed to the survey participants. This function can be used in the following scenarios:
- If you wish to prefill a question with a URL and you want not to have it displayed on the screen. This overrides any conditions used within the survey because the respective question will not even be embedded on the page.
- If you wish to store or calculate a value on the fly via the Expression Manager
- Off (default)
CSS class (css_class)
If you want to add special CSS classes to certain questions, you can enter the CSS class name(s) in this box. Make sure you leave an empty space between different class names.
- Any text string with a space between different CSS class names.
Relevance help for printable survey (printable_survey_relevance_help}
If you wish to print a survey, you can also print the relevance equations for each question. But, if you wish to offer instead an explanation rather than the expression on the printed form, fill in this box with the text explanation for the relevance equation.
- Any text and/or numbers you wish to be displayed on the printable form.
Randomization group name (random_group)
Place questions into a specified randomization group, all questions included in the specified group will appear in a random order.
Just enter any string you like (for example: 'group1'). All question which have set the same string will have their place in the survey randomized (=randomly exchanged among each other).
Insert page break in printable view (page_break)
This attribute is only active when you actually print a survey from the Printable View. It forces a page break before the question. (Only the Opera browser does not need this since it handles the page breaks accordingly.)
- No (default)
SPSS export scale type (scale_export)
- Default (default)
Show in public statistics (public_statistics)
This attribute allows the admin to chose if the results of a particular question should be shown to the survey participant after he/she has the submitted he survey. Please note that in general to show statistics to the participant the survey setting 'Public statistics' has to be enabled!
The default setting for each question is 'No' (=Do not show statistics of this question to the user). You have to enable this for every single question if you want to show the survey statistics of that particular question to the participant after the survey submission.
- No (default)
