TOPIC: Iterate Survey + previous answer

Iterate Survey + previous answer 1 year 4 months ago #89577

Hi,

I'm new to limesurvey.

I'm trying to create a survey that should be filled out each day. On the next day the user should see his/her previous answers (when some conditions are met).

I've noticed a feature called "iterate survey" (docs.limesurvey.org/Iterate+Survey#comme...ght=Iterate%20Survey). Is this also available in the latest version of limesurvey? Is it possible to show previous answers if they meet some conditions?

The iterate feature you linked is more for waves of surveys.
You would need to export all answers every day. Reset the token status.
The survey would be always prefilled with the values of the last survey.
I don't see a chance to get this done out of the box with Limesurvey 2.0.

A feature request could be a solution in the long term.
Be able to access answers from submitted questionaires via a certain id (e.g multiusage token with counter) during a running interview with the Expression Manager.

Thanks for your reply.

I see two options for me for a short term solution.

1) Using an older version. Would You know what the last version of limesurvey was, were this feature was included?

2) Branch limesurvey and create an own implementation to add this feature. Is it possible to provide some more details on how to create this solution?
a) How to reset the tokens?
b) Is there already an option to pre fill the answers?

The iterate function won't help you, since you need to reset the tokens of the survey every day and export results every day.
So option 1 is no short term solution.

In LS1.92 you can reset the tokens. I cannot locate the iterate button in 1.92 or 2.0.

If you see option 2 as a short term solution you seem to be an experienced programmer.
