I am using a Commcare-based survey in which several questions involve randomly selected scenarios: several random numbers are generated to assign a scenario, and then the following questions depend on the assigned scenario.
We have observed that when we exit the app and then reopen a specific form later, the scenario number is different from the first time (i.e. Commcare re-does the randomization and therefore assigns a different scenario). This is a problem because the previously-saved answers no longer correspond to
the questions that appear on the screen.
My colleague Caroline posted this very same issue in 2017 and we are starting a new survey and facing the same issue. In the past we were able to work around it, but this current one doesn’t have a good work around. We would like to avoid setting up cases. Will Pride had suggested there is a way to avoid this using custom XML. It looks like he no longer is with Dimagi. Is there anyone else that could help me with this?
Thanks in advance,
