# Individual survey question for a number survey participants

1 year 3 months ago - 1 year 3 months ago #168854 by Joffm

client A who has codes from "CustomerAData XX1" to "CustomerAData XX65", or in other words, this client A has to go through the loop 65 times

I just start with dataset number (dsno) = 1 and in each loop I increase this dataset number.
In the question text I just have a micro-tayloring:
{if(dsno==1,"The name of the first dataset",if(dsno==2,"The name of the second dataset",if(dsno==3,"The name of the third dataset",....
Constantin will know the real names.

And the termination?
At the moment I add to the end-url only "token" and "dsno". You could add the amount of datasets (65, 87, 23,...) and then either clear the end-url, so that the survey doesn't call itself anymore or use a quota (not sure about it).

If you play around with the dsno,
2nd customer with 101,
3rd customer with 201,...
you can have a well defined relation between customer and dataset name.
The start you can store in the participants table as ATTRIBUTE.

And the termination could be the same (dsno modulo 100) = max amount.

When I am finished I will provide the surveys *.lss

Awesome, I really like the idea Joffm.
I will need to play around a bit to really understand the full potential of this.
Thanks a lot

Best,

Hi, now I included the termination.

1. Set a hidden single punch question (I called it QQuota) with three answer options:
0 = okay
1 = termination (all datasets were answered)
2 = no rights (somebody tried to open the questionnaire directly)

2.a. In an equation set
{QQuota=if(intval(dmax) lt intval(dsno),1,0)}
if the amount of datasets is smaller then the actual dataset number, set the value to "1" otherwise to "0".

2.b. If there is none of the expected parameters in the survey link, like dsno, token, dmax, set the value of the question to "2".

Then there are two quotas to screen out the participants which have
the value "1" with an appealing text like "Thank you very much; these were all our questions."
the value "2" with a text like "You have no rights to enter the survey"

Otherwise you can direct to a third part of the survey with some general questions at the end.

Something else:
Till now I displayed the name of the dataset by micro-tayloring (see my last post).

There is an other option.
Create a question "huge text". (I called it "DocuName")
As default answer, enter your datasets (with a well defined start to be able to do a search):
CC000101This is dataset 1 of customer 1
CC000102This is dataset 2 of customer 1
CC000103This is dataset 3 of customer 1
...
CC012326This is dataset 26 of customer 123
CC012327This is dataset 27 of customer 123
CC012328This is dataset 28 of customer 123

All texts have the same length, fill with blanks (easily done in EXCEL)

Now knowing the customers number and the actual dsno, you cut the name out of this text.
1st equation (called eqNeedle) to create the "needle", the correct CC-value.

{join("CC",if(strlen(custno)==1,"000",if(strlen(custno)==2,"00",if(strlen(custno)==3,"0",""))),custno,if(strlen(dsno)==1,"0",""),dsno)}

2nd equation to cut the string:
{trim(substr(DocuName,8+stripos(DocuName,eqNeedle),50))}
You see, there is always a fixed length of "50", and the blanks at the right are removed by "trim".

If somebody thinks it is of use...

By the way: In the video I changed the wording of the "submit"-Button to "Next" as described here

Hi,

thank you very much again, so I got most of survey to work. The only problem I have is the termination with the quota, I just can't get it to terminate. Joffm would you mind sharing your *.lss so I could check what I'm doing wrong.
Thank you

Best,
Constantin

quotas only work in activated surveys...

Yeah, I tried but still no termination.

Well, with the provided information there is very little we can do. You would have to provide a test survey with the respective behavior and explain when the quotas should close the survey for us to have a more detailed look.

Hi, Constantin,
sorry, but I was busy during the last week.
Therefore no time to read or write here.

Best regards
