In some cases there is the need to define a simple choice question (dropdown or radio) using a very long and articuled list of options.
For example, the choice of italian municipalities, that are more than 8.000
A solution coulb be a driven selection by region (20) and province (107). Even if this hierarchy is not exactly balanced (7 is minimum and 315 id max number of municipalities for each province), the hierarchical selection of combined lists could help a lot.
In this moment I found this only solution:
1) one question "List (Dropdown)" for the Province, categorized by Region
2) 107 questions "List (Dropdown)" for the Municipalitie, with Relevance equation based on selection in the Province question.
Is there a solution more efficient?
Version 2 will solve this kind of problems?
Thanx
Luciano

Have a look at the autocomplete workarounds - docs.limesurvey.org/tiki-index.php?page=...wers_for_text_inputs

Hello!

Same need (geographical breakdown) and samequestion here: a workaround for hierarchical or cascading dropdown lists would be great, but the link provided points to the manual and my reseraches on this in the manual have led nowhere...

Could someone point me to the resource mentioned by tpartner or any other solution?

Merci!
