Noob alert.

I created a peer evaluation survey for my company. I have a dropdown list that contains all employees in the company. How can I prevent a person taking the survey from choosing his/her own name off the list and evaluating him/herself?

This is a close survey but not an anonymous one and I activated token tracking.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Assuming that drop-down option contains the token first-name and the token last-name, separated by a space, you can set up your survey to use JavaScript and add this to the question source. It will remove the option.

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">	
	var firstName = '{TOKEN:FIRSTNAME}';
	var lastName = '{TOKEN:LASTNAME}';
 
	$(document).ready(function() { 
 
		$('#question{QID} option').filter(function() {
			return $(this).text() == firstName+' '+lastName;
		}).remove();
    });
</script>

Cheers,
