Add option in cascade question

Dear Team,

Could you share the tips to add the answers option in the cascade question in Kobo server.


Welcome to the community @chandary! Would you mind having a look at our support article Adding Cascading Select Questions. It should help you solve your issue.

Dear Kal,
Thank you very much for your guide. I would like to share with you that, currently I already deployed a project and started the data collection already. But now I want to add some answer options to the cascade question on the Kobo server. But I don’t know how to do it and keep the existing data collected.


For this, you will need to do the following:

  • Download your survey project in xlsform
  • Update the cascading select options as required. Note, while doing so you will need to be careful not to duplicate the name under the choices tab.
  • After making necessary adjustments, replace your xlsform with the current version and then redeploy.

This is all you need to do.
