:lady_beetle: Bug Fixes

Unnecessary sensor data export form

We fixed an issue where users encountered an error message on the Data Export page when they attempted to export sensor data while the study had no data sources. Now, we hide the form in these cases to prevent confusion.

Missing question placeholders in the Preview page

We resolved an issue where the Preview tab of the survey editor did not identify question content placeholders correctly. Now, researchers will see the placeholders as questions and can respond to them to check how they affect the survey question contents.

Incorrect warnings about unreachable survey questions

We addressed an issue where researchers received false warnings in the Publish tab indicating that some questions were unreachable. The fix ensures that only unreachable questions are flagged, providing more accurate feedback before publishing.

Incorrect criteria re-evaluation for the past sessions

We fixed an issue where the system was incorrectly re-evaluating the criteria of past Unanswered or non-prompted sessions (due to false criteria). Now, only sessions scheduled after an event that triggers re-evaluation are checked.

Delay issue affecting email notifications

We resolved an issue where the delay between specific events (e.g. scheduling a session or joining a study) and the corresponding email notifications caused those notifications not to be created/sent. Now, such notifications are scheduled for the exact intended time.
