Saving name of randomly selected roster element

How do you save identifiers from a randomly selected value in a roster?

For example, I roster 5 people, and randomly select one. I can insert the info into the text of the question - “now please proceed to interview XXXX”, but i can’t see how to save the identifier for the selected individual to the data file.


We do not have such functionality now. However, version 5.24 scheduled for a release on Oct 2 will allow saving variables in addition to questions in the export files. Once this functionality is available you can create a variable containing your name and export this variable together with your main data.



the index of the randomly selected person should be reconstructed outside of Survey Solutions from the random value ssSys_Irnd in the same way how you obtained the row number from Quest.IRnd() in Survey Solutions.
