I've read many forum and manual posts, but can't get this to work at all.(A few years ago I had it working on an earlier version of LS.)

I'm running the latest version through LS.

For Q1 which I have hidden I want to record a response of Yes or No. (That is the question type.) However I can't get any URL to work for me. I must be missing something really simple, but I can't see it.

I can't use the Panel Integration as this only appears to work for text fields.

These are the variations I've tried without success.

example.com/145251?lang=en/eb?Q1=Y

example.com/145251?lang=en/Q1="Y "

example.com/145251?lang=en/eb?Q1=Y

example.com/145251?Q1="Y"&newtest=1

example.com/145251?14251X1=Y

example.com/145251?Q1=Yes&newtest=1

What am I missing??

Thanks in advance

Which translates into what exact version. The "latest" is never helpful. You don't know when the next latest is released. So numbers please.


Start with complete URLs to check issues with rewriting the URL first. Start with a simple textquestion, which shows the text of the get variable. If that is working, than try it with the other questionstypes.

Post a complete URL from your surveylink (you can change the domainname to something different e.g www.xyz.tld/ ).

www.xyz.tld/index.php/survey/index/sid/0...questioncode2=answer

Thanks jelo, the version I'm using is 2.72.6.

I used your troubleshooting advice and got it running within minutes as I wanted it. can't figure out why it wouldn't work before, but I got the output I wanted.

A working URL looks like this:

example.com/145251?newtest=Y&Q101=N

Thanks

Looking at the last post I thought I would be able to get this to work using the querystring parameters &question275=mystringoftext.
But it's not working! I picked on "question275" because that is the id of the div in the web page that contains the question. The id of the input field itself is "answer837571X11X275" - which makes sense 83751 is the id of the survey, 11 is the id of the question group, and 275 is the id of the question. What am I missing?
I am running version 2.55.1+161026

Thanks,
Tom

Hi,

the GET-Parameter is the Question code.

As nmillstoshibatap wrote:
example.com/145251?newtest=Y&Q101=N

Seems that newtest=Y is the key. Thanks!

newtest=Y is causing a new session. Nothing more, nothing less.
Not sure why that should be the key for prefilling variables via URL.
You might have issue when testing in one browser without resetting the session.
But during a live field you might not use newtest=Y to allow respondents to stay in the interview when reentering the URL.
