Carousel question type

Just a question I am often asked ...

Can we do carousel questions?

Rather than a multi-row grid, we have one statement / attribute per page. So if I had 10 statements / attributes in a multi-row grid, I can go with a carousel approach instead which will be 10 individual pages.

Yes, we can do that.

I guess the missing trick here is more the transition affect from one page to the next. The statements tend to fly in from either the top or from the right and the special affect looks pretty cool.

Is this something that Sawtooth Software is being asked?

It would look pretty cool and most likely be the extension of a current grid question with 2 key differences - one item per page with the fly-in affect (left, right, top, bottom).

Looking forward to your reply.

So, ultimately are you talking about a grid and using a loop instead of rows?  Just with the added affects you are referring to?
Jay, its like a loop. Ask the same thing as many times as necessary, but it looks like the same page with the statements / attributes / items flying onto the screen once you have  clicked on your rating.

I've seen it a few times in surveys but I'm getting it requested a bit more these days.

It would be nice to see it become a Sawtooth Software standard.
I have added this onto the Sawtooth Software feedback also.

We have used some advanced javascript to make this happen.  In simple words, we are showing attribute one by one with animation effect.

Ex: https://knowledgeexcelsurvey.com/demos/General/cgi-bin/ciwweb.pl?studyname=General&id=test&q=16

It would be great if we can get this as standard in Sawtooth.

Thanks Saurabh. I'll be in contact.
Javascript for this carousel

Can you provide us with code or instructions how you managed to create this kind of carousel question?

Thank you
Saurabh, this is way cool!  I'd love to know how to do this.
