Draw from Bank (Include in shuffle - batch/bulk Change All option needed)

Jul 27, 2020

Hi All,

Apologies if this is already a feature and I'm missing a click somewhere but...

We are currently developing a 40 question test with a specific rule set when it comes to drawing questions from the bank, I noticed that the ability to select all questions and change to "Randomly/Never/Always" isn't there, this means that with the criteria we are working with, we have to scroll down each question one by one and select Never (easiest way) and then select randomly.


40 Questions in Bank

Question 1 for delegate would be either "Question 1,4,7 or 8" this means as mentioned above all other question options have to be set to "Never" and then set 1,4,7,8 at random.

This is somewhat a little tedious as you can imagine where it would be fantastic to have a Change All option or something to all selection questions.

Hope this makes sense... and once again apologies if there is a way of doing this, this is also the same for changing question to answer shuffle, it seems like you can select and change the option but no... manual is the only way to go from what I can see.

Many Thanks... looking forward to your responses.

Kind Regards

Hi Ted,

Thanks for reaching out! Currently, there isn't a way to have a Change All option under the Include in Shuffle section of a question draw, but I appreciate the details you've shared and how it can be useful. I’ll be happy to pass your thoughts on to our product team, but you can also feel free to detail them more through a feature request

In the meantime, have you considered creating separate question banks for those specific scenarios, instead of having to adjust 40 questions for each draw manually?

This will create a little more work on the front end in having to group questions, but it will save time in adjusting each Include in Shuffle option.

Hi Ren,

Thank you for getting back to me on this, apologies for the delay... I've returned from a (rare) sunny week off here in the uk :).

I'll add a feature request for this as I think it would be viable in the project we are working with, to have the option to batch change any items in software us a huge benefit as you can imagine. Thanks for your other suggestions but on this occasion it wouldn't be right.

Kind Regards
