Prefilling default answers based on tokens for various types of question

Hey guys!

I know that the 'Multiple short text' question allows to prefill the text fields, using the token attributes. But I would like to prefill answers for other types of questions: Radio(List), Multiple choice, Arrays...
Any advice on how to do that would be much appreciated.

I'm using the latest LS 3.20 hosted on LS servers, not installed locally.

You can use the Expression Manager assignment operator in equation questions to set other questions - manual.limesurvey.org/Expression_Manager..._assignment_operator

For example : Q00 : a single choice question, prefilled by a code in attribute 2

create a hidden equation question ate start of survey with
{Q00=if(is_empty(Q00.NAOK),TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_2,Q00.NAOK)}

Great! Thanks guys.
So, I have to place a hidden equation question before the question to be prefilled.
I have tested it with a radio(list) and dropdown menu, and it works. But what to do with the multiple-choice question type?
I have found Tony's previous post from 3 years ago, but following the steps described there did not work for me.

Is that method still relevant today or something has changed?

Thanks, but does it mean that I need to create an attribute for each answer choice/subquestion in that multiple-choice?
Also, the problem is that this method keeps prefilling that answer choice even after I deselect it, move to next page, and then come back to it - it is refilled again.
My intention is to give the respondent the ability to change his/her previous answer in that multiple choice and save a new value.

You need a have a way to know if ech option must be checked or not.

Okay, understood.

Did you read ?
«Multiple choice : Y or empty, need an extra part to disable reset to empty. For example : another eqution question in the groupe , equG1» equG1 is here to know if user get to the group

Yes, but thought that everything was included in the code line. Can you please give an example of the part with reset to empty?

Then : use token + prefill value for each token using VV import : it's the method i always use …

Okay, I thought that token attributes would be a better way, especially when it is written in the instructions to VV that there might be errors with importing CSV back to LimeSurvey.

Not really helpful.

Yeah, I use it too for CSVs. Will see how this works for complex questions.
It is just token attributes seemed easier and quicker because you do not need to analyse the structure of the exported CSV and map your question answers to codes used there. It is a lot of manual work, or writing additional scripts in R for prepopulating the CSV. You do not always have that time...

There are NO reset to empty : all is included in
{Q00_sq01=if(is_empty(equG1.NAOK),if(TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_2,"Y",""),Q00_sq01.NAOK)}
In the 1st equation (don't care about title)

Andf about 2nd equation

equG1 just have 1


If you can not do with this instruction : open a professional support ticket.

If you have 5 ro 10 question to prefill : really easy to do
