Make KoBoCollect ignore "field-list" in repeat-group

Hi dear amazing KoBoToolbox support & community

Would it be technically possible to make KoBoCollect ignore the field-list appearance in repeat-group?

What is the general goal of the feature?
That way we could continue using this appearance in projects when data is collected with both Enketo and KoBoCollect. That way, for people using Enketo it would look nicely grouped, but wouldn’t prompt an error in KoBoCollect.

What are the most likely user stories for how and when this would be used by someone on your team?
We collect data both with Enketo and KoBoCollect and in Enketo its better to have repeat-group grouped.

How useful would this feature be to other users or organizations?
Quite useful for people using both Enketo and KoBoCollect.

What can you contribute to making this feature a reality?
Unfortunately not much, just sending you good vibes and be grateful.

Greetings, Vico

@Vico, if you do not wish to have the field-list in the repeat group, you may leave the appearance column blank. Wouldn’t that do the task?

Hi @Kal_Lam
I actually would love to be able to have it in my project so that when using Enketo it looks better than when not using it.
We collect data both with Enketo and KoBoCollect, and I am limited in the appearance choices in Enketo because KoBoCollect doesn’t support it.
I will edit my first post to make it better understandable.

I am not a programmer so I have no clue the reasons why it doesn’t work and I don’t know if my idea of solution is technically possible, but my idea would be to tell KoBoCollect not to try to interpret this appearance, that is specifically telling it to ignore this parameter,

Best regards
