I have a survey question that requires the user to input data into three text fields. For example,
"what are the three top sellers?"
1.User input 1 2.User input 2 3.User input 3
Is there any way to set this up?
Samir, this can be done and you would use the method that James outlined with the appearance of the question. Then within Survey123 Connect you could do the following -
You could also set the "bind::esri:fieldType" to "null" for the three questions that will contain the rank and they will not be submitted into your Hosted Feature Service. I have uploaded an example XLSX form for you.
Ok. I think I narrowed down the issue. My xlsform does not have the grid theme in the appearance drop down. I can write it in, but it has no effect on the appearance when I do that. Also missing from the appearance types is the table-list type. Any idea how to add these?
Currently, the XLSX form will not contain the "theme-grid" within the "appearance (column I) field" drop-down selection on the "survey" tab. Instead you will need to place "theme-grid" into the "style (column G) field" within the "settings" tab of the XLSX form.
The "appearance (column I) field" drop-down selection will not contain the "w#" value in front of the appearance choice either. You will need to select your appearance type first, then double click within the field, add in the w#, then hit return and select "yes" to the non-standard input question you will be prompted with.
In terms of updating your form to contain the "table list" and other functionality, you should be able to follow Doug's instructions from his linked post. That is the way I have done things since Survey123 was released and it seems to help with updating the forms. However, this could be a potential enhancement for Survey123; to update an out-dated XLSX form to the most recent standard XLSX form that would be created by the most current version of Connect.
Thank you for all the help. I think I have this figured out. There were actually a few things going on. First, the new survey was created using the Basic template. This template does not have the table-list appearance option in the drop-down. I went back and started the survey with the advanced template. Second, the theme-grid style would have allowed me to accomplish exactly what i needed, which was to style the survey in a way that allowed the three text questions on the same line. The issue was that I was trying to use the theme-grid in conjunction with the table-list appearance, these are currently incompatible. Finally, the table-list appearance can only be used with select_one types, so that would not allow for the formatting I was looking for. My solution involved setting up the "top three" questions using Mike's suggestion above and not using the theme-grid since elsewhere in the survey I am using the table-list appearance option.
There is already an open suggestion to be able to use the theme-grid and table-list in the same survey. I think that would a useful feature.
