Bug Fixes

  • Formulas of the form VARIABLE:TEXT will now transform back correctly when used in the new concept screen. Other places in the application will soon follow.
  • In the Codebook, new page logic pages didn't have a "jump" link to the variable definition

  • Bulk updater would display an error when using CID to update, or when updating the TEST_YN column even though the data was correctly processed.
  • In the SAT, when selecting a page in skip logic, no content would be shown in the drop-downs.
  • When skip logic conditions were redirecting to the same page the respondent was in, the filters for the currently displayed questions/responses are now being reevaluated in case there were changes.
  • Data download layouts would sometimes include an item for grid questions even when there was no corresponding data being collected.
  • In the SAT, Highlight states couldn't be reordered.
  • When testing as a respondent and using the skip to "question/page" functionality, sometimes it would skip to the wrong position even if no logic had been triggered.
  • Some places which displayed question content, like the navigation tree, page logic, and quotas were not sanitizing the HTML so it was displayed.
  • There was no validation that files were of CSV or TXT type for lookups in the SAT.
  • The bulk edit option has been removed from static element type questions.
