For some of our survey forms the idea would be to include employees that worked on the task being collected by the survey, there are pre-defined crews typically in a lot of these roles, what I would like to be able to do is have a default number of repeats set for the typical crew, but have it so the user can delete or add new ones if a crew member is absent or they have extra help that day. Same idea for the vehicles or other standard resource groups they would use.

I don't believe this is possible with how repeat_count functions currently, but is there a way to make this work?

Since repeat count has all kinds of issues what I do is use count() or position() and set a constraint on that.  Note the user can go one past the max but they will then get an error on submit.  I added a message that warns then right away that its too far.  Been much more reliable for us.

Hope that helps

Does this allow repeats to be created when the form loads to be auto-filled with information? Pre-loading a working group or group of assets into repeats for the users is the goal here.

Like, here's the standard set of inspections for a Thursday, but oh you didn't get to one so you can delete the repeat, or you had time and did one you missed a previous day so you can add it" type thing.
