I am converting a paper form to electronic and I am trying to figure out the best way to capture this question in Survey123 Connect:
Legal Description: ___ /4, ___ /4, ___ /4, of Section _________, T- ____ - ____, R - ____ - ____, I. M. / C. M.,
It's one question but capturing 9 fields.
Hmm, are you able to share the paper form? Sometimes having a bit more context can help with the brainstorming 🙂
What type of information are you populating those 9 fields with? Is there a reason you wouldn't just have 9 separate questions for it?
It's a "Sanitary Sewer Extensions, Lift Stations, and Force Mains
Engineering Report Form"
The _/4 spaces will be numbers only. Section will be a number only (1-36 only), T-1N (will be a number with either N or S), R-2E (will be a number with either E or W).
Ah ok, I see what you mean. I would maybe have a "Legal Description" group/section of the form, and then questions for each part you need to populate the final form with. Having the questions separated makes it much simpler to pull into the report.
For the "Section" question, you could implement a restriction or use a dropdown choice list to only include integers 1-36.
For the T question, you could have a question where they enter the number, and then select "N" or "S" from a choice list. You would then do the same with the R question, but with options "E" or "W".
That would probably be one of the simplest methods. You could also play around with the grid theme if you want to have certain questions next to each other.
Just some ideas...hope it helps!
