Hello – I want to set up a question using logic that will appear in the survey only when the end user selects a specific day (IE: when you select a day of the month that is a monday you will see a question with monday specific info)
Q2.Date requested is equal to Mo
Is this a capability? thx in advance!!
You will have to use custom scripting for this. For the following example, the pop-up calendar question that collects the date information has an ID of 11. I have created an ADMINISTRATIVE question that will receive the day – it has an ID of 54.
This is the script:
1 %%xdate = sgapiStrtotime(sgapiGetValue(11));
2 %%xdate = sgapiDate(“l”,%%xdate);
3 sgapiSetValue(54, %%xdate);
Line 1 – creates a variable (xdate) that is equivalent to the value that was entered into question ID 11 (sgapiGetValue). The sgiapiStrtotime function converts the answer from a string into a date/time value.
Line 3 – the sgapiSetValue function places the variable into the ADMINISTRATIVE question ID 54 as the answer.
The line numbers are included for reference only, do not use them in your actual script.
After this script has run you can then setup any logic you need on question ID 54 (or whatever ID number you have in your survey).
It depends on how your survey is structured.
Our usual method is to create an ADMIN ONLY page and then place the script and the admin only question on that page. After this page runs, the variable from the script will be available for any logic test.
I would recommend that you create a prototype survey and use it as testing site for your questions and the script. It might take several attempts, but once you have a structure that works you can recreate it in your actual survey.
I am assuming that this is your first exposure to custom scripting. If you are unfamiliar with programming it is a little daunting at first, but once you get it to work there is an enormous feeling of satisfaction once you get it to work. And then you start looking for the next opportunity to use your new skills.
BTW – there is some helpful documentation available on the SurveyGizmo site – https://help.surveygizmo.com/help/article/link/scripting
thanks – this is great. Now for the BIG question… How do add this code and ultimately run the script?
Question Type = Date … respondent uses the pop-up calendar to select.
It could be possible, but in order to answer your question we need to know how the respondent is selecting the day? What kind of question type are you using to collect this information?
