Use case: Currently, the text fields for questions and static text do not have auto-complete. For regular words, there is no need, and this feature may even be counter-productive. But there there is a need for text subtitution. In questionnaires with lots of rosters, it can be tedious (and error prone) to type
%my_roster_id% for each substitution of the roster item into text (e.g., “How old is [NAME]?”). The main use cases I see are:
One could also make the argument for regular text substitution (e.g.,
%var1%), but that might be overkill.
Changes: When the user types
% in the text field for a question or static text, provide auto-completion of the keywords mentioned above.
Work-arounds: This is a convenience feature, and there are several acceptable, albeit annoying, work-arounds that I employ routinely:
- Type out keywords manually every time.
- Copy-paste from an external text editor.
