I’m building a form to conduct facility/school assessments. At the beginning I’m asking for the name of the facility (text entry) and lower in the form I have a repeating group where information on individual buildings at the facility can be detailed. So respondents can add as many buildings as they need.
For each building (or group) I want to include the name of the facility to which it belongs (I know this is indexed, but it makes working with the data afterwards more intuitive). The way I have set it up is with a hidden question inside the repeating group, for which the default response references back to the response given to the facility name question with the
For some reason, the first entry of this group doesn’t store the referenced facility name, but the second added and subsequent groups do and it works great from there on. But the response of the hidden question of the very first group is always blank. Same behaviour if it’s not a hidden field.
