Handling off path variables

Post by boniface_m » April 2nd, 2021, 1:35 pm

Dear all,

Does anyone have an idea of how to handle off-path variables. For instance when you write a skip statement, and the user presses the back button, they will still access the skipped questions. Is there a way of preventing this from happening?

Many thanks

We consider this a feature. We do this so one mistake by the enumerator doesn't delete a bunch of data. For example, the enumerator modifies and existing case and accidently selects refusal at the beginning and skips to the end.

However, you could look into using the optional parameter savepartial to delete offpath values:
