MaxDiff Version

Is there any way to tell what version of the Max Diff is getting piped in? We would like to proof the Max diff rotations,there’s no place to know which version we’re looking at or choose a different version of the Max diff rotation. Let me know how possible that would be.

You can use the function GetValue on the sys_MXDVersion_exercisename and sys_MXDDesignID_exercisename to look at those.

sys_MXDVersion_exercisename is the version of the exercise they will see.
sys_MXDDesignID_exercisename is the design id of the design file used.

In addition to Mike's suggestion, when you test a survey locally with options you can use a specific internal respondent number.  Versions are based on the respondent number, so you can export your design to a CSV and open it in one window to version 54, then take your survey as respondent 54 and verify that what the design file says is showing up on your screen.
