Looping question, questions groups.

A loop can contain one to many questions/questions groups and is connected with a list of items with will be changed with every iteration of the loop.

The list could be predefined in the first place or an dynamic list can be build during the interview.

Typical example is when asking for brands.

What brands you can think off (open text items)?
What brands you know (predefined list)?
What brand you would buy (subset of selected list above).

Dynamic list = Randomly choosen up to four items from the last selected items.

Now up to four items are applied to a loop of questions.

Today you would need to precreate every loop by hand and hope that the list to choose from is not changed during programming ;-) Copy and paste errors all the way.
A five minute job with looping can turn into a 24h task without looping.

To allow skipping of certain loops would be another feature used in connection with conditions.

I don't expect that such a feature can be added via the plugin api of 2.1.

I agree with you...

"I always suggest to have a group by group display layout and create a seprate group for each question. This will be extra work but you will get flexiblity to create your question by using more than more lime survey question types."
