We have a survey that could have up to 88 custom attributes (yes, the survey is a monster). I was wondering if there is any method to the survey admin to use cookies in the group/question/sub-question logic? Setting the cookies is simple... using them in LimeSurvey seems a huge question.

If you mean using the cookies to control the existing conditions and Expression Manager behaviour, I believe the short answer is no, not without hacking the core code.

You can import a CSV file for the tokens. The easiest method would be to export an existing table, modify the CSV and then import.

Great sadness... that did not work. I exported a token set that had one custom attribute, then created additional columns with new attributes, then did the import (see attached) into a clean survey (with no tokens). All I get is one token with no additional attributes.

Sorry, I misunderstood.

You will need to create all of the attributes in the LS interface but then the values for each respondent can be imported.

HACK.... 1 year 7 months ago #89750

Mother of invention... Well, this may not be ideal, but my need was far beyond taking the time to do everything in an ideal method.

The following hack adds the following capabilities:

1. Delete individual custom attributes (TODO: add a confirm message).
2. Does not display the upper section if there are no attributes.
3. Added upload CSV file to parse out two of the attribute fields (description and caption).

Caveat - I probably should have put in some mechanism to check for existing and/or archive existing off, but all of my surveys are new... sorry :(

Two files in the attached archive are based on Version 2.00+ Build 121204 - the other two files are the custom UNC file and an CSV example.

Paths are not included in the archive - should be:

...application/controllers/admin/tokens.php
...application/views/admin/token/managetokenattributes.php
...application/unc/UNC_CustomAttributes.php
