Two progress bars, first for mandatory questions, second for optional questions

Hello,

I have a question if this can be done with LimeSurvey. I have a survey that consists of 20 normal mandatory questions. So questions that have to be answered and 10 additional questions that are completely optional. To make these optional questions stand out a little bit, I would like to have two separate progress bars. So one progress bar for the mandatory questions and one for the purely optional questions. Is this relatively easy to solve or do I have to solve this programmatically myself? 

Would be grateful for any idea, because when researching I could not find anything. 

Thanks 

Greetings Bavra

You will have to code that yourself.

Not a direct solution to your problem, but if the mandatory questions are before the optional questions, you could think of creating two separate surveys and join them via end url, then you "naturally" would have two progress bars anway. Just an idea.

Thank you very much for your feedback. Splitting my survey into two surveys and then reconnecting the two via URL is something I've thought of. However, there is a lot of logic in the survey and the second survey would then have to access the logic of the first survey. And that doesn't work, does it?

If I would solve this via templating: getbootstrap.com/docs/4.0/components/progress/
then I would need at least a possibility to adapt the templating to the question groups. So question group 1 has progress bar 1 and question group 2 has progress bar 2. But I didn't find that here: manual.limesurvey.org/Theme_editor

Did I miss something there?

Then the progress bar would only have a display character without logic behind it, but that would not be so bad.

Thanks for your support

If you need logic between the mandatory and the optiona questions, then splitting the survey might not work, I agree. Always depends on how much logic is really involved and if you can't pass parameters in the URL.

Of course, if the logic is based on a big portion of the 20 mandatory questions, this might not work, but passing 1 or 2 parameters should be doable.
