Identifying unique answer combinations from multiple repeated questions

0

Hi,

I am trying to build a survey where I have repeated questions/pages based on several sequential multiple choice (checkbox type) questions.

Example:

Question 1: respondent answers are “X” and “Y”

Question 2 (repeated based on Question 1, this is working nicely): respondent answers for repeat 1 (about “X”) are “A” and “C”; answers for repeat 2 (about “Y”) are “B” and “D”

Question 3 (should be repeated based on questions 1 and 2): respondent answers for repeat 1 (about “X”,”A”) are…, answers for repeat 2 (about “X”,”C”) are…, answers for repeat 3 (about “Y”,”B”) are…, answers for repeat 4 (about “Y”,”D”) are…

It is question 3 that I cannot get to work. I am struggling to find a way of getting the question to repeat only as many times as there are unique combinations or using merge code to integrate the selected combinations (“X”,”A”; “X”,”C”; and so on) into the question titles. There doesn’t seem to be a way of uniquely identifying the different repeats of, in this case, question 2 and thus uniquely identifying the different combinations that the respondent has entered.

The workaround as described in https://help.surveygizmo.com/help/setup-logic-based-on-piped-options isn’t really helping since in the end you have to build logic for each option and I have dozens of possible answers so that would take ages. Also, there will be some more levels of complexity in follow-up questions (e.g. “X”,”A”,”1″;”X”,”A”,”2″; and so on).

Is there a simple way of extracting this data on the different combinations? It should be there somewhere, but I haven’t found a way of getting it out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! And please let me know if my question is not clear enough.

 

Best,

Jan

    @Janvandeun : The only way that I can think to do something like this would be with custom scripting. Here is the documentation if you wish to try your hand at it:

    Alternatively, this kind of customization is something our Programming Services team does regularly for a fee. If you would like more information about this service you can find that here:

    I hope this helps!
