TOPIC: Ranking question plus Others option (tricky)

Ranking question plus Others option (tricky) 2 years 3 months ago #80817

Hi,

I am currently doing a "ranking" sort of question. However besides the answer options I provide, I would like add a "Others (please specify") option as well. Meaning, if the options I provide does not represent the participant's answer, they get to type in their answer AND include it together with the rest of the ranking options provided.

I know this is a little tricky so anyone have any solution?

Thanks for using your free time to help out. greatly appreciated..

Cheers
Eileen

My approach would be:

1) Add "Others" to your ranking question answers.

2) Place a short-text question after the ranking question - "Please specify."

3) Apply conditions (with scenarios) to the short-text so it is only shown if:
[RANK 1] equals Other
OR
[RANK 2] equals Other
OR
[RANK 3] equals Other
OR
[RANK 4] equals Other
OR
...

Hi Tony

I have tired out your wonderful suggestion but for some reasons the conditions appear to not respond.

1. I have applied condition (i.e. Rank 1 equal Other; AND Rank 2 equal Other etc)

2. When i go to the page, although the "Other - please specify" short text does not appear, it still does not show up when I put it in one of the ranking options..

3. I tried a couple of times, magically the condition worked ONCE before, but when i restart the survey, it does not appear again.

4. What should I do? Could this issue due to the difference between "Rank 1 equals Others OR Rank 2 equal others" and "Rank 1 equals Others AND Rank 2 equal others" If so what should i do?

Thanks for taking ur time to assist me! (:

The condition need to be Rank 1 equals Others OR Rank 2 equal others OR...

See scenarios to get ORed conditions - docs.limesurvey.org/tiki-index.php?page=..._the_use_of_scenario

Hi tony,

Thank you for the link. I have read it but find it challenging to understand. The help manual does not explicitly state a step by step procedure/example to guide readers on how to create a OR condition between different questions. It stated that I need to set up scenario, but the help page did not explained clearly how the "scenario" help in creating an OR condition for different questions. Are there any other materials/video u can refer me too, or help me understand better?

Sorry, I have not encountered this situation before, and not really strong in this aspect. Therefore I would greatly appreciate if u or any limesurvey team can help me out. It would be a great learning experience for me.

thank you so much!

Sorry, I can't explain it any better that the manual does with the screenshots.
