Randomise or rotate a code list with groups & headers

It’s often required to show a code list with several group headers and responses within these groups. In most cases it’s necessary to randomise the responses within the groups and / or the groups themselves. This article shows how this can be done using the Change response order routing action providing and example .qex and syntax. This functionality is often referred to as Block randomisation.

List of response items with response headers

By combining the use of a special character and of the Change response order routing to identify the response headers, you can easily setup your block randomisation as seen below:

HTML table around screen elements

It can sometimes be hard to layout elements exactly as you want on a web screen if there are many elements or loops in play. This article will step through neatly storing several elements of a loop on a merged screen in a HTML table.

Using Google’s reCAPTCHA in AskiaDesign

The main purpose of integrating a reCAPTCHA in an askiadesign survey is to protect your survey from spam, abuse or bots while letting your respondents pass through with ease.

The only requirement is that you register your domain with Google’s reCAPTCHA in order to obtain a private key and add the appropriate JavaScript snippet to your survey.

You can play with this on our demo survey now or head straight to the KB article!
