Quota Set up


We have 500 brands in a question. We will be targeting a total of 100 individuals within these brands, however, we cannot have more than one respondent from any particular brand.

Do we have to program 500 single quotas (1 per system)- or is there another (more efficient) approach this?

Please let me know.

I will add to what Rahul said and remind you that since there are 500 to set up you can set up a csv file and import them rather than manually setting up 500.

Thank you both of you.
Especially, Jay - Without your suggestion I would have done manually. You saved my day.
Abdul, I thought you are aware of csv import functionality.
I am happy that your time is saved from the info.

Thanks Jay for adding this.
Glad to have been helpful.  I learned that one the hard way myself. :-)
Thanks Rahul, your suggestion was also very helpful. I was struggling to set up the logic. Your's and Jay's idea made me confident.

Hi Abdul,

Since a respondent will be assigned only one brand out of total available brands, so you can create a single quota having 500 cells (one cell for each brand). The limit of each cell will be 1 as 1 brand can not be assigned to more than 1 respondent.

Also, in the cell membership method, please select Least fill (percentage) so that the brands can be assigned on the basis of lowest read.

Hope this helps.
