Is it possible to change options for a single select question via API?
Could you kindly provide more details on this?
Sure, here is some more context: We have two forms: form A and form B. In form A, names of reforestation sites are recorded. In form B, a volunteer is giving an update on the reforestation progress for a particular site. We are looking for construction where registration sites from the form A are automatically included in the answer options in form B, for the question where the name of the site is asked.
I tried to do it via PATCH (from Update form section at
api/v1/forms ) and connect it to a workflow that will automatically update form B when the form A is filled. However, it turns out that what 'Update form" does is to replace the xls form and not adding extra rows to “Options” tab.
Is there any other way to achieve that maybe?
@angelinasavchuk, kindly please be informed that KoBoToolbox is working on a feature that should be able to address your needs. It’s a work-in-progress feature. You should be able to follow it through this GitHub issue:
I will, however, reach you back when we have this feature ready. As an update, please be informed that KoBoToolbox will soon release this feature.
@Kal_Lam Thank you for this information! Great to hear you are working on it.
