How do i design a cascading select question in KoBoToolbox?

Hi, I’m glad that kobo toolbox is the easiest and most reliable form building tool that I’ve used. However, i need assistance from you. I’m not able to group items under under asset class whereby if for example i click on office equipment, it should display only contents of office equipment on the next page. Kindly assist. Thanks.

Welcome to the community, @collins_collo! We call it a cascading select question in KoBoToolbox, and you could create the same as outlined in our support article Adding Cascading Select Questions.

If you are comfortable using an xlsform you could also build it as discussed in our previous post:

Hi team Kobo, i have managed to create a cascade select xlsform using the guidelines you provided but it seems there is an unknown error while uploading the form. Please have a look at it and advice what is wrong. Kind regards.

@collins_collo, there was a small typo in the survey tab of your xlsform:

I corrected as follows:

And it should work as expected.

Edited reference xlsform:

Thank you so much. Let me try it out and see the results. I will give you an update on the outcome.
