variable/question names
Posted: Aug 29, 2008 7:16 PM

I would like to give each survey question a unique variable name for when I export it into my stats software program. Having each question export with a heading of "question1" is not helpful for interpretation and I will be using the same survey with different audiences/samples over and over - So to recide the variable labels for each sample is timeconsuming, particulary when you start randomzing question order.

Is there a way to add custom unique question identifiers? The "custom question id" field I thought was going to support this but the unique label stored there does not get downloaded with the export, unless I'm doing something wrong?

Can someone please respond to the previous post? I too am interested in generating my own variable names instead of xn. Thanks!

This is currently not possible, but we have this at the top of our priority list. It is guaranteed to be included in the next major upgrade (spring 2009).

The custom question id is for integration purposes. For linking a question to some external application, database or plugin.

Was this issue ever resolved? I've tried to do three different things in order to change the report headings from "Question1" to my variables names and still no luck. Please help!

Is it possible to label question on the survey , so that on the raw data report it does not show up as question 1, etc rather would be a customize number.
