Does the randomizer generate an index as embedded data?

When using a Randomizer, embedded data can explicitly be set to record which of the random options was selected. Does the Randomizer itself generate any embedded data automatically that can be referenced to identify which of the options was selected during the survey?

I know that the Flow IDs can be exported after the fact, but if this information could be accessed online that would simplify development in my case (there are a large number of cases, and I just use a "LIST_ID = i" variable, where i is an integer between 1 and N).

I also know that I can ask Qualtrics to generate a random integer, but the "Evenly Present Elements" option of the Randomizer is important to me.

    This would be a really useful feature.

    What I do is use groups instead of blocks inside the randomizer. Each group contains the block and an ED that assigns the appropriate value to the condition. This is one possible workaround.
