Hello there!

I face the following problem: I have about 23 questions and the progess bar looks kind of demotivating for my interviewees, altough I want to keep to it and don't want to hide it.

The "problem" is that the last 2 questions aren't really questions (just email for contact and the last slide), but the progress bar still says that there is quite a "distance to go". Can I somehow "manipulate" the progress bar so he doesn't count e.g. the last 2 questions/slides?

Thanks for any hints!

Cheers,
Georg

For me this is a major issue stopping my use of the progress bar. Im many of my surveys I have say 40 questions and may be 40 hidden equation questions so the progress bar only ever shows 50% at completion of the survey - makes it confusing to participants. I have raised this as a bug issue in 2.05. I always contribute/donate for bug fixes.

Hello,

you can change the value of th progressbar adding some javascript snippet... some start here... (I dont't know it can be used with LS new releases)

You can also try to adapt and place the following code in a question or group description source:
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
	$(document).ready(function(){
		setTimeout(function() {	
			$('.ui-progressbar-value').css({
				'width':'25%'
			});					
		}, 100);
	});
</script>
(this code comes from a previous forum post but I can't find it to check LS version.)

Hi

Thanks - a bit beyond my skill set but it also very cumbersome if you have to add to every questions - this really needs to be a global fix. The progress bar should only pick up questions which are not hidden.

I will however have a little play. Thank you again for the suggestion. :)

Yes you're right.. The big problem is that the progress bar indicates the progression in pages and not the number of answered questions

For a 2 groups survey (set group by group)
1st Group: 40 questions
2nd Group: 1 question
The progress bar will displays 50% starting with the 2nd group...

Looks complicated to get progress bar more dynamic :(

Thanks and agree :( The progress bar I feel is so important to give some comfort "not long now to end of survey" especially if it is long and complex. Other systems I have used seem to overcome this problem. It is fine counting pages just not the hidden ones especially equations.

Add to wish list. Enhance the user experience.

Any ideas on a global fix or what to do next?
