Kobo - serious bug in (beta) matrix-ranking question

When I form a matrix-ranking question, deploy the form, and then open it again for editing, the entire form is not functioning anymore after redeploying it. After redeploying the matrix-ranking question can’t be passed, and a pop-up says “answering is required” while all of the questions are ticked.

The awkward thing is that the matrix-ranking question seems to stops working only after at least one form has been filled in and sent back to the server. If you open the form for editing after this has been done, the sub-questions of the matrix are presented differently than before. It happens also if you leave the matrix-ranking question in-tact, but for instance add another question to the form.

This makes testing the (beta) question type ‘matrix-ranking’ almost impossible.

Hi Martijn,
I tried to reproduce this issue on my side but wasn’t able to. Could you share your form with us? Feel free to send a private message to sup...@kobotoolbox.org with the details in case you don’t want it to be seen publicly.

Thanks,

Tino

Hi Tino,

I still face the same problem: I have attached to forms: A is a functioning form with a “matrix-rating” question.

However, after form A is deployed and being used, then edited by adding other questions, cloned and/or deployed (Form B), you cannot pass the matrix-rating question anymore even though all the answers are checked it says “required”. Mind you I did change the group name of the matrix-ranking (reducing it to “s_”) but left the question itself in tact.

Attached in both XLS and XML versions.

Greetings,

Martijn
