What method does survey gizmo use to generate a random number as a hidden value? We have gotten a weird distribution in one of our surveys. I trust that it’s random, but I would like to know what’s going on under the hood. Thanks!

Thank you, Jim, for flagging this post!
SurveyGizmo uses a PHP rand function to generate the random number for the Hidden Value Action. There is also an option to use Custom Scripting to generate the value:
using an equivalent of the mt_rand function in PHP.
I hope this helps clarify!
