Select Multiple

Hello,

I am having an issue with the select multiple fields, and this is happening for all variants of multiple selections. As the multiple values are selected, the selection clears itself.

for example:
Select multiple, i check 3 choices, then the 3 selections will clear seconds later.

Can someone please provide some insight into this?

Thank you
Brian

Brian,

What version of Collect are you using? Do you have these selects on
the same screen? Do you have a small 2-3 question form that shows the
issue?

Hi Yaw,

This is actually happening during my testing in the application designer, I am using the ODK 2.0 tool set.

I verified the selection values with a handlebar tag, and this will show all 3 then clears and only shows the last selection.

Are you using rev 126 or the development tip? Are you using numbers in the
data_value column of the choices worksheet of your xlsx file? If so, the
data_value is only allowed to be text and numeric values will be
de-selected. We do have a select_one_integer prompt in rev 126 and will
look into creating a select_multiple version equivalent for our release.

Also, as Yaw had asked previously, do you have multiple questions on the
screen? We are using jQuery Mobile in rev 126 of the code and did notice
some performance issues when multiple questions were on a screen which did
cause selections to be de-selected sometimes. On the development tip, we
have switched to Bootstrap to help with this issue. To mitigate this
issue, you can try putting every question on it's own screen for rev 126.

If these suggestions do not address the issue, then it would be helpful to
include an xlsx file to investigate the issue more thoroughly.

Hello Clarice,

That was it! I was using integers as the data values. It is working now

I am using rev 126 currently yes, and I do have multiple questions on the
screen.

Side note: Is there a best practice to the number of questions on a single
screen?

Thank you everyone!

I'm glad that the issue is resolved.

In terms of best practices for the number of questions on a single screen,
this really depends on what works for your survey and the devices that you
will be using. In the preview pane of the application designer, there is a
Device Dimension drop down menu that you can experiment with to see what
would look best for your survey.
