Date stamps for specific question

Hello,

I was looking at my output for past survey and I was wondering if it was possible to obtain a date stamp not just for the start and end but also for when specific random questions are started or submitted.

Thanks

You could insert hidden short-text short-text questions and use JavaScript to record a timestamp when a page is submitted.

Alternatively, save timings and work it out in post-survey analysis.

I have done both those things. However, the problem still remains that

1- Saving timings gives me the time spent on a question not when it was answered or started. Meaning if 2 questions take equal time I won't know which came first even if I look at the short text question you mentioned along with the timing of non random questions

2- How do I know which question preceded the short free text question, I used this script

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
if($('#question{QID} input:text:eq(0)').val() == '') {
$('#question{QID} input:text:eq(0)').val(new Date());
}
{
$('#question{QID}').hide();
}
});
</script>

1) Saving timings gives the time spent in a group regardless of randomization. If there are several questions visible in the group, you have no way of detecting where the respondents eyes/thoughts are.

2) The short-text is in a given group. You know what other question(s) are in that group. Or, am I missing something in your survey set up?

2-Well,I want to know when specific questions appear. For instance, how would I know when someone submitted an answer to a random question like question nf37 in the lss file below for?I had an idea of changing questions (list radio) to the list with comment option and have a date stamp appear in the comment and then hiding the comment. Using the script I mentioned in my earlier reply for the short text, however it doesn't seem to work. Do you know of any Javascript options in that regard? Thank you for responding
