Back to form definition for breeding birds counting protocol, locusts and grasshoppers
Colleagues iterate in a repeat loop each time they see or ear a bird within 5 minutes.
I would like to find a generic way to count how many time a specific taxa have been seen during the field session (= selected in the list), in order to show the summary of the field sessions before form finalization. I can do such aggregation on the database side after the data have been submit to aggregate but I would like to satisfy this user need in a more generic way, without coding a calculate for each species of the list as I do here :
That's a good one. Unfortunately I don't think there's a straightforward way to do this, certainly not in XLSForm. Would you use this in your analysis or mainly to show a summary to the data collector? I'm wondering because there are some things that could be considered with repeat but it would not be convenient for analysis.
