How can I Repeat a Question

You can repeat questions on Collect using the group question type. There are four types of group questions: no repeat, choice, number, and custom.

Sometimes, you might want to group some questions together in a survey form. You might have a table type question on paper and you want to make it on Collect, or you want to ask a set of questions multiple times in every survey — based on some conditions.

Ex: Asking medical details of every household member — based on the number of people in a household.

Group questions help you do this. In this article, we will discuss how you can create them.

Group Questions Based on Repeat Conditions

  3. Group repeats based on choice: Create a group of questions that gets repeated based on the response to a numerical question in your form. For example, if in a household survey, you want to record the basic information like name, age, and date of birth of each member of the household, you can create a group question that gets repeated based on the total number of household members.
  4. Group based on custom condition: Create a group of questions that gets repeated based on the response to a choice question in your form. The group can be repeated for every selected option or for every option not selected. For example, if in an education survey, you want to record specific data points about every level of education of your respondent, you can use this group question type.
