Fill in automatically


I am wondering if we could let Kobo fill in answer automatically. For example, in question 1, we asked what is your relationship with household head. The answer could be 1=head (himself), 2=spouse, and 3=children. Then, we asked a series of questions related to respondent such as age, sex, education. Then, another section, we asked information of household head such as age, sex, education and so on. I am wonder if the respondent is head, could be make the series of questions about household head to be filled automatically like the respondent as we don’t want it to skip.

I hope to hear from you soon. Thanks a lot.

Best regards,

Hi @Kal_Lam,

Thanks for your swift responds. I have been figuring it out. But, I cannot. The problem is my question links to two different questions.

You may have a look in my excel file . what i want is that if q13=1, then the answer of q17 equal to the answer of q10, and the answer of q20 equal to the answer of q12.

Hope to here from you again soon. Thanks
