Hi there,

again thanks for your input, I do have a working prototype now and sent a feature request. Here ist what it looks like:


limeshot03.jpg



The functions are:

(1) add a new question, if group is empty. If there is no group a bar with "Add new group" appears. Any icon is linked to call the appropriate view. (done)
(2) the eye indicates weather a question is hidden(=greyed) or not, the exclamation mark indicates weather a question is mandatory or not (=greyed) (done)
(3), (4)a red answer or subquestion icon indicates that there are subquestion/answers required to add (done)
(4) all bars have a hover effct, pop up information uses existing text (done)
(5) layout uses holygrail design with flexible centered columns width (done).rtl layout is todo
(6) checkbox functionality: checking/unchecking a group checks/unchecks all questions within this group (done)
(7) all questions can be checked, unchecked or toggled (done)
(8) additions functionality: hiding/unhiding & make mandatory/optional is todo (outruns my actual knowledge of LS programming
Best regards/Beste Grüße,

Looks great.

When an icon "calls the appropriate view", does this happen in a modal pop-up or new window?

Thanks,

neither nore, the default view is called in the same window/tab like using the icons in the group or question menu bar. But you are right on the long run the idea is that this could look like this (from an earlier scribble):

Currently I'm working to make my prototype working with the organize view even if the survey is running (normally the icon to call this view is deactivated if the survey is active) So I have to implement this functionality - hide some icons if survey is running - into each group and question bar of the new oranization view.

There is one function more that appears useful: the QA icon should also indicate an error by showing a red icon. But I'm not sure if this does not require too much processing time - checking QA for all groups and questions when calling the organize view.

You're Welcome :)

Currently I'm doing some code cleanup in the prototype (getting rid of all the spaghettis) and added a feature to collapse questions too. Think it's usefull. See this image: Question F0x1 is in expanded, F0x2 in collapsed mode.

Anyway I'm looking for some advice or help to implement a function to hide/unhide make mandatory/optional all marked questions with clean coding and not a makeshift do-it-myself solution

Feature is coded completely :) :) :) and ready now (to be tested & implemented)!

Now its easy to make all questions of a survey, group or an individual selection mandatory/optional or hidden/visible with only a few (ie 4) clicks.
Thanks to all für your hints and advice!

Are there any more ideas what is useful to do for several questions at once (bulk-operations :) or to recognize at a glanze?

I don't have time to have a look at the code, but think i make some optimization on js when i found some times.

Thanks !!

Hi all,

meanwhile the main features as discussed before are implemented and a feature request is done.
Now I'm looking for further ideas and suggesions.

What is done so far:

1. The organize view now shows an overview for all groups and questions. By clicking the icons one can easily jump to functions like editing the question, subquestions and so on.
2. The status if a question is visible or hidden is shown as well as if a question is mandatory or not.

01_before.jpg

In this screenshot all questions are NOT mandatory (mandatory icon is greyed)

02_while.jpg

Now all questions are marked and the bulk operation to make all questions madatory is started.

03_after.jpg

After clicking the Save button all questions are mandatory now.

Some more ideas for bulk operations are:
- export, delete selected questions
- copy a question more than one time at once (with different names)

Any more ideas?
What would improve your orientation about the survey design status?
What could improve your workflow?
