    How Can I Limit The Number Of Questions With Shuffle?

    Asked by JacobBaileyGroup on August 23, 2016 at 06:35 AM

    Hi,

    I have a survey with around ten questions per page, but what I need it to do is to show three random questions from those ten on each page. From what I've read, this should be achievable with the Shuffle widget, but I can't find where I can limit the number of questions returned.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks.

    hello JacobBaileyGroup,

    Please note that "Shuffle" widget will only rearrange the question by displaying randomly in different position. I believe this widget does not fit into your requirement as it will not be able to randomly choose questions to be displayed. 

    I am not sure but I believe you can take advantage of our "Condition" feature to achieve your requirement. I will have to do further tests and validate this. I will get back to you if I am able to find out any options to achieve your requirement.

    Thank you!

    Hello Mukul,

    I am still trying to find some solution with "Form Calulation" widget to see if we can use some logic to filter questions. Since we can only work on such workaround in only our spare time, it is talking sometime. 

    I will get back to you if I am able to find some workaround.

    Thank you!

    Hi,

     

    I managed to work something close to what we were trying to achieve by generating random numbers for each question in Excel and then applying a condition to each one which was close but not ideal.

     

    In the end, we ended up building something custom.

    Thanks.
