Note that question IDs change when setting up a new question so don't forget to adjust the IDs.

The survey requires a multi-option (checkbox) array followed by another multi-option (checkbox) array filtered and including the exclusive option and other option as well...
Hmm...now I'm a little confused. I thought you were filtering an array with a multiple options question (see my screenshot).

Can you activate a sample survey or provide a screenshot?

Sorry, perhaps I didn't word that correctly.

The survey has a series of questions (multi-choice, checkboxes) which all cascade, feed to one another. The final one also needs a static/exclusive option. As below:

Q1
What colors do you like?
[ ] Red
[ ] Blue
[ ] Green
[ ] Yellow

Q2
Which colors do you like best? (feeds only the answers chosen in Q1)
[ ] Red
[ ] Blue
* This being the final question in the series also needs one other static choice not present in Q1/array filter.
[ ] None of the above

This is what they are trying to achieve.
Does that help?

Thank you again.

Okay, I see now. I thought you were trying to filter an array type with a multi-option type (as in the image above). Now what I'm seeing is a series of multi-options filtering each other and culminating in a final one that has a static option.

I'll have to give it a little more thought and see how the "automatic filtering" will affect our "custom filter" on the last two in the cascade.

How many questions are there in the cascade?

Tony,

It's only a set of three questions which cascade, each however has 13 options/choices and the last needs to have the "none of the above" static option.

However, later in the survey, the results of that last one are piped back in repeatedly in the question text (which works great), and used for skip rules (conditions, again works great).

I am highly impressed by this product and am advising my clients to start using it and donate to support the efforts.

This survey is a highly complex one and just about 98% of it was easily accomplished through LimeSurvey, out-of-the-box. I have only a few straggling issues.

Thank you for all your help with this.

Just an idea :

Add the None of the above answer to each question, put this one in default for the first question and hide it with css/js.

I think it's easy to do, there are only a problem : all first statistics are bad cause this option.

:)

Clever idea Shnoulle but I'm struggling with the lack of a click event not firing the filtering function. How would you set the "default" in Q1?

Dawna, I don't suppose these questions are on separate pages are they?

Hi Tony,

Yes they are each on a separate page. The survey is question-by-question.

I went back to the client and asked if we could add this option to each of the previous questions so it would be there when it was needed to filter through. I'm still waiting on an answer but I fear they will want to keep it as is. :-(

Thanks.

Can't we do that by using the new default answer feature in Limesurvey. If you set a default answer there it should check the box at loading time; this should also work if the option is hidden by CSS I guess.

Duh...zoned on that!

So if Dawna can beat her customer into allowing hidden "none of the above" options in all questions we can do it this way.
