In aytm logic, references and aliases can be used in multiple ways, achieving a wide range of possible text and survey flow manipulations.
By appending “P” literal after a direct reference you can get the position on which this item appeared to a particular respondent. The value is returned as a usable text, such as “first” “second” etc. If the item was not seen by respondent, an empty “” would be returned.
This is especially useful if respondent previously expressed item preference through Reorder (ranking) or Side-by-side comparison exercise, the knowledge of the item ordered position can be further used to ask the reasoning: You mentioned apples were your [Q1A1p] choice, why? If apples took the second place in the Q1 ranking question, respondent would see You mentioned apples were your second choice, why?.
- [Q12A1p] - Q12 was a single-choice question with randomization on. This logic placed further in the survey would yield “first”, “second”, “third” etc. texts, depending on the order of items seen.
- [Show if Q12A5p=”first”] - if the fifth item of the Q12 was seen on the first position, this logic will be activated, allowing display of the element it is situated in.
