Dear Kobo team
I notice that a new system for downloading subbmission has been implemented. But this new system doesn’t provide the “Value and header format” option "Label (language) (in my case Label (it))
That’s option affects specially the “select one” and “select many” questions. The label option, replace the spaces with the underscore underscore symbol (“my_selection” instead of “my selection” for example).
So, is it possible to add the language option as before? The XLS file will be processed by another system and if it isn’t well formatted, the process fail.
I hope I explained myself
Available for more details
Kindly please be informed that if you have only one language, you will not have the option to choose the language while downloading. If you have more than one language in your survey project, you should be able to choose the label of that particular language while downloading your dataset. For details, you could also have a look at the post discussed previously:
@valerioabbattista, could you help me understand this issue? If your project had only one language, Italian (it), then the export “Value and header format” should show two options: “Labels” and “XML values and headers”. “Labels” should give you the Italian text; for select questions, this could contain spaces like my selection. By contrast, choosing “XML values and headers” should give you systematic names that do not contain spaces, like my_selection.
This behavior should not have changed with the latest update, and you should not need to add a second language.
Having looked at an old version, I think we used to have a bug where if a form had a single, named language, then the “Value and header format” drop-down menu would show three choices:
“XML values and headers”
The named language, e.g. “Italian (it)”
I’ve just tested and (1) and (2) actually produced exactly the same result. This was a bug. There was no need to show both (2) and (3), as (2) should have rendered the Italian labels.
Since the new release, we show only (1) and (2) unless you have more than one language. If I’m reading your first post correctly, you should use (1), “XML values and headers”, where you previously used “Labels”, i.e. when you need question names and choice labels that do not contain spaces.
Take a look at column C,H and I. They correspond to a “one choise” questions and you can notice that the words conteins “_” instead of spaces. It seems that it uses the XLM name instead of the label of the single choices.
No I don’t. The result is the same both if use “labels” or “XML values and headers”
Looking at the choices sheet of xls version of the project, what is shown (in the submission xls sheet) is the “name” column. What i need is the “label::Italian (it)” column
