What is Config/Netting: Merge, Unmerge, Rename, Move, Hide, and Exclude Choices?

Netting allows you to merge, unmerge, relabel, reorder, hide (without re-base), exclude (with re-base), and score each of the choices in your table.

To do this:

  1. Go to any choice or matrix question (and rank later)
  2. Click the 'cog' icon next to your choices (and ranks later) in the table dropdowns
  3. Select the choices you want to merge, e.g. 0 to 6
  4. Click Merge

  1. Relabel your merged choice by typing in the box, e.g. "Detractors [0 to 6]"
  2. Hover over the 'i' information icon to see your original choices
  3. Click Un-merge if you want to revert to the original choices.
  4. Click the Up or Down arrows if you want to move your choices up or down in order.

  1. Click Hide (the 'eye' icon) to hide this choice from your list with no impact on calculations (percentages & answered values). E.g. show only "net agree" but hide "neutral" and "net disagree". See example here
  2. Alternatively, click Exclude (a 'minus' icon??) both to hide this choice from your list AND to recalculate the answered values and percentages. This is perfect for "don't know" or "n/a" or "None of the above" choices. See example here
  3. Click Done when you're ready.

3: Merge Ranks

Coming soon!

Hide Choice vs. Exclude Choice

Hide Choice merely hides your choice from your list, without affecting calculations. In comparison, Exclude Choice both hides your choice from your list AND recalculates your answered values (base n=) and percentage values (%).

For example:

Question: How important is it that businesses act responsibly when it comes to society and the environment? (n=10)

Choices:

  • Not important 30% (3/10)
  • Neither 10% (1/10)
  • Important 40% (4/10)
  • Don't know 20% (2/10)

EXCLUDE "don't know" (n=2)

  • Not important 37.5% (3/8)
  • Neither 12.5% (1/8)
  • Important 50% (4/8)
  • Don't know 25% (2/8) [exclude]

HIDE "neither" and "not important"

  • Not important 37.5% (3/8) [hide]
  • Neither 12.5% (1/8) [hide]
  • Important 50% (4/8)
  • Don't know 25% (2/8) [exclude]

Score Choice

Score choice allows users to "score" or "average" their choices, e.g. for:

  • NPS score,
  • Average Star Rating,
  • SRS score,
  • Scale Average
  • Choice Average
  • Mood Average or Score
  • Statement Average in Matrix
  • Average Rank

However, this feature will not be solved in the Netting AV2 Beta as we plan to solve this more holistically in the Question Editor next, after the Beta has been shipped.

Netting done! 🎉

Netting in the Share Link

Q: Can my clients use the Netting feature in the AV2 share link?

A: Yes, Netting should be available in the AV2 share link. If it's not in the Beta, it will be added in later updates.
