How-To Guide: Repeating Inputs
This How-To Guide contains examples of how to collect repeating sets of information, which can give you a shortcut for modeling repeated questions and make editing/updating these questions much faster. Additionally, by collecting the inputs using these repeating constructions, you make your underlying data much more accessible as well as easy to manage, report on, and use in other questions and areas of the application.
Examples of the business scenarios these tools cover include collecting similar data sets across multiple office locations, products, service units, people, and events. The three constructions showcased in the example project are:
- Vertical Repeater
- Tab Control
Use the Vertical Repeater to gather data that is limited in terms of the number of questions and space used but provides customized and variations for each step. To collect the same information across multiple "cycles", you can use the Smartgrid. If you want to provide extensive and rule-based variations in each cycle use Tab Control.
