How to you find the option sku or id to use in a merge code for an “enter another option” textbox in a checkbox grid?


I am trying to use merge codes to pull the text provided in an “enter another option” text box on a checkbox grid into a later question. I was able to do this with a multiple text box question, but can’t find the correct option sku for the text box in the checkbox grid. I can find the row id, but not sku for the specific text box cell.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for your post.  I’m sorry to say it is not possible to use a merge code to pull in the text from a “Enter another option” textbox because there is not a static sku for that textbox, which would explain your trouble finding it.

    It may be possible to have a script written that will grab that open text and populate a later survey element with it.  If you have access to a developer, this may be something you could speak with them about.  Hopefully this information is helpful.
