How to Skip from a Ranking Question

Hi all,

Yet another question for the wonderful KoBoToolbox hive-mind.

I’m building a fairly simple survey, but am struggling with one issue.

I have a couple of ‘Ranking’ questions that include ‘Other’ as an Item to be ranked (i.e. if what you are looking for is not in the list of items to be ranked you can select ‘Other’).

The issue arises when trying to build in the skip(s) to a follow up ‘If other, please specify’ question. In other words, if the respondent selects ‘other’ in any of the rankings, I’d like them to automatically be asked to specify what they are referring to with a follow up ‘Text’ question.

Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks very much!

best,

matt

Check the below example for details (here the follow up text question is only asked if the enumerator picked ‘other’ as one of the responses:

Hi, here is an example of the project i have used the skip logic, https://ee.kobotoolbox.org/x/#YYu8

You realize that questions that are optional will not show up until a given choice from a leading question is selected, Hope that helps, for more tip get me on whatsapp on +254710401008

when I try to put skip logic based on ranking, I cannot find the parent question, and the kobo toolbox version is updated, so the response types no more like the old one
