Is it possible to add a comment boxes next to multiple choice?

I would like to attach a comment box “abc” next to the choice selected under a multiple choice question. Is this possible?

Hi @ainoguchi,

Welcome to the community! Would you mind providing a pictorial form of your query.

GOOD DAY!

Here’s the form with the multiple-choice question. If someone were to choose say, 3 choices, it would be nice if a text box could pop up for each of the selected answers to allow a descriptor answer to accompany this.

Thanks
Akiko

Hi @ainoguchi,

Maybe you could do this by using the skip logic like you use for other response. Please see the support article User-Specified “Other” Responses For Multiple-Choice Questions for details.

GOOD DAY!

Hi @ainoguchi,

KoBoToolbox’s latest release finally supports the comment box feature for a question. For details, please have a look on how it is designed in xlsfrom:

In the survey tab of the xlsform:

In the choices tab of the xlsform:

In the settings tab of the xlsform:

Data entry screen as seen in Enketo:
