Question that totals percentages to 100%

How can Opinio handle a question that asks a respondent to enter percentages that should total 100%. Can Opinio verify the total equals 100%?

Example:

In a typical workweek, how frequently do you use the following (total must equal 100%)?

Computer ____%
Telephone ____%
Photocopier ____%
Fax ____%
Other ____%
TOTAL 100%

Thanks!

Opinio doesn't support this at the time being, however, I know that this can be solved with a simple validator plugin. This requires some java knowledge, though. We'll try to come up with a small example within a few days.

Here is a simple plugin validator that can be used to validate total percentage entered in a matrix question with numeric cells (integer).

Thanks, Rikard! We're in the middle of a number of surveys now. The next opportunity I will have for testing is April 27.

Has this been solved since the original post?

Yes, in v6.4 you can now do calculations within a matrix. Then you can have validator on the summation-field that checks for a min/max value.
