Thanks for this excellent software resource!
I have a rather complicated form created with xls form that includes a number of type = “note” columns for visual headers. When I export/download data from my form submissions, these columns appear in my spreadsheets as completely blank columns (it makes sense that they are blank because users cannot enter data for notes). There are a non-trivial number of these, so I would prefer not to delete them manually post-hoc.
I would like to exclude these columns when downloading data. I am able to do this for group headers with the existing tool in KoboToolbox, but no such option exists for note columns. Perhaps there is a way to specify the xlsform itself so that nothing will be generated for notes? I tried leaving “name” blank for these, but that did not work.
How might I go about excluding these columns from my final spreadsheets? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
