Grouping questions on single page

As per subject i require multiple questions on a single page. I have built a form with KoBoForm to use with ODK Collect,and used the 'group' function which apparently doesn't group the questions on a single page. If there is a known way to group within a page from KoBo Forms without manual coding that would be great (ease of use was why i selected KoBoForm in the first place)

Now i have search the group subjects and look at the responses, generally use to in the .xml. I tried this out copying a few examples but to no avail: maybe i positioned it in the wrong place, maybe, probably!, the code i used was wrong.

here's and exert of my stock form:

</h:head>
<h:body>

Any help for a novice would be greatly appreciated. If Kobo Forms is unsuitable for this purpose i guess i will have to go down the path of using XLSforms.

Thanks

Please: do not spam the list with 3 versions of the same question.

The best way to figure out what you need is to construct your form using
one of the form generator tools, either XLSForm (where you write the form
in a spreadsheet) or Builder. Then generate the XML, and see what it looks
like. See http://opendatakit.org/use/xlsform/ And the documentation here
on XLSForm: http://opendatakit.org/help/form-design/xlsform/

I strongly recommend designing your forms using one of these tools (XLSForm
is my preference).

We created these because directly writing XML, and getting the syntax fully
correct for the XForms interpreter (javarosa) is very difficult.

Mitch, sorry mate i didnt mean to spam anything. First time using a google
group and the questions i submitted the first two times didnt show up (at
least on my computers). i hadnt at that stage hit the 'join group' button
so i determined that was the issue and thought the first two attempts had
vanished into the void!

appreciate the advise on XLSForms, i choose KoBoForm because of ease in
getting up and running and indeed it has achieved that (the forms work).
however they are not to my liking in 'appearance' and it appears as though
to achieve what i want i will require minor xml editing to group on pages
if continuing down the KoBo path.

i will have a go at it and see what the learning curve is like.

Thanks

There should not be dramatically different functionality between KoBo and
XLSForm w.r.t. grouping of questions. As our group supports XLSForm, that
is the tool and documentation I point people to. The KoBo folks will guide
you to the documentation specific to their tools.
