Error related to groups and multiseletion questions

Please your urgent help. I have designed a form using kobotoolbox. the form works perfectly as the web version, but it generates an error in case of the android platform: the error message is: only questions and regular groups are allowed in ‘field-list’. noted that I can’t delete the groups becouse many conditionions are built based on the groups. Please, any solution can keep the design as it.error + group.xlsx (24.0 KB)

Updated, adding the the xls file and the screenshot for the error

Hi @hnowirah.bfd,

Hi @hnowirah.bfd,

Would you mind sharing with us some additional information:

  • Which version of the KoBoCollect android app do you use?
  • Which question is it that you are having issue so that the community could directly focus on the same? (This is because there are certain members in the community who might not have knowledge on the language you share with the community)

Have a great day!

Hi @hnowirah.bfd,

This issue happens when you have a repeat group within a group that using “field-list” as an appearance setting. Kindly see the screenshots from your form.


So you have to remove “field-list” setting from rows 58, 109,
125, 139, 160, 182, 201, 223, 237, 254. If so, your form should work perfectly.
