    Can I attach labels to individual questions so that in data analysis the columns will be labeled?

    Unfortunately, the Single Choice field (Radio Button) does not have a sub-label feature. The idea is to put the main title in the label and then the question in the sub-label. However, there is no sub-label for the Single Choice field.

    As a workaround, you can try this long method:

    1. Insert a Short Text Entry on each question. Put your preferred title in the label of the Short Text Entry.


    2. After that, assign a calculation value to each option in the specific question. Here's a helpful guide: How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value.


    3. Create an Update/Calculate Field condition that passes the value to the Short Text Entry field. Here's a guide: How-to-Insert-Text-or-Calculation-into-a-Field-Using-Conditional-Logic.


    4. After that, you can hide the Short Text Entry field so that it will not appear in the live form.

    Here's a screen capture of how it works:


    5. In the Submissions page, you can just filter the fields before exporting it into an Excel file.


    Hope that helps. Thank you.
