this was originally asked in the ODK community form.
We are testing putting surveys on mobile devices and we tried koboforms first.
The main problems we were having is with multi select variables.
The question text and hint change to undefined and I don’t understand why.
once we get a form build and change the undefined entries back to their values another multi select will loose it and go undefined.
IF we manage to get the form build and saved it all looks fine and loads on the device then on the multi selections if the first one turns on
or enables the following question it works, but if another selection in this question is selected the following question is turned back to the hidden state.
thinking it was a kobo form problem we changed over to purcforms and tried it.
the interface produced a product with no changes make to the multi selects to undefined and the output looked better but again the multi select answers looked great
in their test window turning on and off the correct follow questions.
We put it on an android device using odk and click 1 turns on q9, check 1 and 2 and q9 disappears.
an example of this is
crops = asp enable q9
works but it they also check both asp and corn in the crops question q9 disappears.
since your code says
relevant="/new_form1/crops = ‘asp’"
do they need to be manually changed to something like relevant=“selected(/new_form1/crops ,‘asp’)”
it is just something I am sure I am doing in the question definition but unsure why multi gives this problem.
I am assuming that something is up with all online designers with multi select questions or something i just do not understand why kobo forms switches to undefined and why the skip patterns do not seem to work correctly with multi select questions.
and trying to describe what is happening is tough in a text box LOL
