Hi there

I have a survey where i need to set up a question where the answers are given on a scale of 0, 1 or 2. Or from easy to moderately easy to hard to impossible. The first type that i need to display looks like this:

I know i need to use the table-list option is the appearance column and use a "select_one type, but i do not know how to associate my select_one questions to the choice list of 1, 2 and 3

The second one i need to convert to Survey123 is:

Could someone please give me some assistance. I am not too sure how to set these up

Hi Admin Admin

The table-list appearance displays a series of select_one questions in a choice grid. The select_one questions must be contained in a group, and all of the select_one questions must use the same choice list. To use the table-list appearance, set the appearance for the begin group question to table-list. Please see a demo survey attached. Please find more info on the table-list appearance here: Appearance—ArcGIS Survey123 | Documentation.

For the second question you could use the select_multiple question type. With this question type the respondent can select any choices that apply. Note that selected choices are stored in one field as a comma-separated string. If you wish to save the choices in separate fields you could use the technique described in this blog post (see the "Controlling how user selections are stored in ArcGIS" section). There are also several appearances that apply to select_multiple questions. Please see Appearance—ArcGIS Survey123 | Documentation for more information.

An alternative is to use table-list with a yes/no choice list (also demonstrated in the attached survey).
