Changing question type


Hi Everyone,

Could you please help me in understanding to change the question type in Kobo.

e.g: I set a question “What is your age?” in “Number” but now I need to change it to “text”.

How to do that?



You can do that in surveys sheet by changing the question type. In your example, you might have something like :

integer | name_field | What is your age?

Change this to :

text | name_field | What is your age?

PS. If you have already deployed the form, you will have to re-deploy the form after making the changes.
