Using variables inside a questionnaire like in serial letters #questfox

In a questionnaire you sometimes need to use a value that was typed-in or clicked inside another question. Transfering data inside a questfox questionnaire is possible after having understood the market research philosophy of label an value and the questfox concept of distinct IDs across all projects.

A simple example:

A single choice question is designed as follows:

example_single_choice_question

Label vs. Value

If the question is a choice question, questfox distinguishes Label from Value.
valuevslabel_in_questfox
A variable has a value (Example: 2) which is described by a label (Example: USA)

Finding the questfox ID of a question

If you want to use a questfox variable inside of questfox you need to find the questfox variable ID, which always looks complicated like 3fb21194-bd3c-4dac-b132-095d4d2e1e2f

Under Answer settings you can see the ID of that specific question

answer_settings_questfox
ID_questfox

A list of all your variables and their respective IDs can be found under “Project Structure” and Show List of Variables.

show_project_structure
showlistofvariables

Adding IDs into the question part

If you want to show the label (=text) or value (=number) you have to put the ID in the question html code in brackets and ad @ to show the value:
  • The label of the variable is {234ccf15-c156-45a1-9767-e0256786752a}
  • The value is {234ccf15-c156-45a1-9767-e0256786752a}@

Just put in those IDs into any kind of questfox question right into the question text.
