Individual results of WTP Simulation


we are trying to evaluate the results of a research study, where we measure WTPs. In order to get better estimates, we are using the simulator (bootstraping with 5 competitors), which works perfectly fine.
We fail to get the individual results though, which we desperately need for our study. Only the normal scenario seems to get individual results, even though we activated the option in every simulation. Is it possible to get individual results for WTP scenarios too? If yes, what are we doing wrongly?

Thanks in advance!

The Individual Results option only applies to individual simulations. They are not available for WTP.

Thanks for the quick response. Is it in any way possible to get the WTP on an individual level? The averages on the main report must be calculated somehow. Maybe by constructing the WTP in some way with the help of the individual simulations? The averages don't help us too much unfortunately.
Our method of WTP involves finding the price increase for the market that leads to the market's share of preference being driven back to the original share of preference prior to the product enhancement.  Thus, this is not an individual-level analysis (even though it leverages individual-level utilities) and WTP is not available at the individual level.
