it seems like stupid questions and I think I did not quite grasp how the server installation works. I ran into some issues when piloting my experiment on our institute's Jatos server and hope you may have the answers for my problems.
- If I add a slightly changed component, is there a way to run the study again without using one of the older version of that component? I think this might be achieved using the component variables by e.g. by changing their IDs manually. However, I do not know where I would have to change these properties. In my experiment script (based on jspsych)? In Jatos directly?
- I also didn't manage to change the order in which the components are run manually. Only if they were in the correct order in my local installation already, the experiment was running in the intended order - the reason might be the same as above, I do not know where I would have to put the functions controlling the study flow.
- If I want to add a slightly different version of my experiment to the server as well, I could not upload another experiment as Jatos was noticing that the two studies are very similar . I was only allowed to keep my previous version and overwrite e.g. components. However, I would have wanted to keep them separate in order to easier compare some of the data. What would be the best way to do so?
Last but not least (and not really related): In one component I would like to enable reload of the page in principle but give a warning nevertheless when participants do so. What will I have to to in order to achieve this? Will clicking "allow reload" still allow me to trigger a warning if participants reload?
Thanks for your help!
