Notes: Free-Choice Profiling Panelists individually generate descriptor vocabulary to describe the sensory properties of the product. Also referred to as Flash Profiling and other similiar references. Allows your Panelists to dynamically Name their own Attributes to respond to. Purpose: Commonly used for Panelist participating in attribute discovery, orientation, and training. Required <COMMENT> Reporting: Use SIMS Report: Panelist Comparison Report - Panelist In Columns Report If your attribute's scale was set up with an Questionnaire Export Label = <COMMENT>, this report will automatically look backwards in the ballot for the previous Comment question, and for each panelist will use their open-ended Comment text as the Attribute Column Descripter. A new report row will be generated for each *Unique* comment from all panelists in your panel. The number of new rows could be from 1 to N, from 1 - if every panelist enters in same identical comment text to N - if every panelist enters in unique comment text Repeat: This report functionality only applies when the Export Label = <COMMENT>, and only for Line Scales or Hedonics Category Scales. Other reports that will ignore attribute when Export Label = <COMMENT>, Statistics, Result Summary Statistics and Graphics. Example Ballot Page: Comment, your Export Label = "Next Attribute Name as Comment" your Question Text = "Please enter in the Name for the Next Line Scale Attribute" Recommended style is a single-line Comment with a max length of 50 or less. Line Scale, your Export Label = "<COMMENT>" your Question Text = " For your Attribute Name, please rate your intensity" Optionally use Nullable Line Scales in your ballot when applicable, such as when panelists may not need or are able to participate in naming attributes. Later, If you didn't set your Attribute Scales Export Label during ballot creation as described here, you can still modify it later after the test using Multiple Edit Text Anytime functionality.
