Thanks Dennis! Tried it quickly and seems to work. At least it saves one click to open the advanced features. Next step for the GUI is to display all: General question info, features and advanced features. Just like nwinter shows in his screenshot.

Because now you have to: Survey -> Group -> Question -> Edit question -> Advanced features and then eventually you have to open also the answer options.

This should all be directly available via this way: Survey -> Group -> Question.

Yes, and by displaying a question tree like it was suggested, we can have all questions available in a tree and in one click pen all possibilities. Life can be much easier!

Quick plugin , not tested with 2.07/2.50 version : git.framasoft.org/SondagePro-LimeSurvey-...showAdvancedSettings


I agree that having an option to always show the advanced settings is something the hard core users would definitely benefit from. But we also need to keep in mind that for new users the long list of additional settings may be confusing.

My suggestion is to add a new "Always show all advanced question settings" option to Global settings -> Presentation. By default it should be set to "No" and if needed admins can easily switch this on.
What do you think?


Different topic: Does anyone know why the setting for enabling showing the "no answer" option for non-mandatory questions at survey level is de-activated by default?
Admins must change this at Global settings -> Presentation -> "Show 'no answer' option for non-mandatory questions" to enable other users to change that on survey level.
From my point of view the user should always be able to decide this?!

No plugin event for this. Anf plugin is 2.5 incompatible.

Then not work on it.

I agree -- there is WAY too much clicking when working with a survey, especially when modifying and editing.

I definitely like the move to enable (or have an option to enable) advanced settings always being shown. I've long-since modified my installation to show them by default.

My strong recommendation for the question explorer side-bar is to simply have it show ALL the groups and questions. In the mock-up for 2.5 it still takes a lot of clicks to get to editing a question. In my 2.06installation I've modified it to display at shown in teh attached picture. When the admin clicks on a question in the left-hand column that question is opened for editing (with advanced settings displayed) immediately. That both makes it easier to navigate among questions you want to edit, and also gives a visual overview of the structure of the survey.

I'd be happy to code something for 2.5 that does something similar, if that would be helpful.

Hi nwinter : 2.5 have actually a system like this. Maybe can be improved.

You can test and report bug/Feature actualy.
