Here's a question about surveys from one of my users. Anyone have a clue how this can be accomplished, or even if it can?
First off, I think I want a survey rather than a poll. I understand how to do it if I want someone to choose one or more answers from a list of answers and I understand how to provide a text box so they can enter whatever answer they would like, but is there a way to combine both types in one question? For instance the question might be, “WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BEVERAGE?” Under that there would be choices for ‘Coffee’, ‘Tea’, ‘Milk’, ‘Water’ and a text box labeled ‘Other’ in which they could fill in whatever they wished.

Afraid not, you'd need to have an 'Other' checkbox option in the question, then in the next question ask the user to skip it if they had not checked the prior one as 'Other'.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
