Live recode available in questfox SaaS market research toolPosted: 8. March 2015
The developing team integrated a new powerful function to recode data inside of questfox. You can recode data while the survey is running into a different variable with a different value. Recoding is implemented in the calculation functions of questlogix.
You need to select your target variable and use the special function qf_recode() with a variable where the data can be found with the idea of a key (which is normally entered by a participant) and a target value to fill your selected target variable.
Example: You want to recode special ZIP Codes into a category:
Define your Target Variable (preferrably an unused variable)
key5 value5 ;
A defined list can be very long. All answers not in list receive the default value (after the semicolon).
Be carefull when using this powerful recoding function.
Here is an example of how to use than function when recoding the example of a ZIP Code into a specific defined other categorization.
