    I'm trying to build a multiple choice table aimed at two respondents, where I would like each respondent to be able to input their own name in the relevant column to distinguish their responses, is this possible?


    Thanks

    I am not sure if I understand your requirement correctly. Do you want the two respondents use the same submission to enter their names? Could you let us know how the form is shared with the two respondents. It would be helpful for us if can share the workflow so that we may be able to assist you further.

    We will wait for your response. Thank you!

    Apologies if I was not clear.


    Essentially it is one table with two columns, one for each respondent (the form is often sent out to married couples). We want them both to record a response to a multiple choice question, with those options offered as the rows of the column. What I would like is to allow the respondents to put their names in the headers of the columns when they respond, so we know which person is recording which response. E.g.

                                 <User input name 1>                  <User input name 2>

    Very satisfied                                                                          X

    Satisfied                              X

    Dissatisfied

    Very Dissatisfied

    In this case, the form can be filled by first respondent by filling the second respondent email address along with his/her response. Once the form is submitted, the submission edit link can be sent to the second respondent by setting up a condition on the form. Then the second respondent can fill his/her response and submit the form again. However, please note that there is a possibility of changing the first response by the second respondent. 

    If you may need to avoid this, you may consider having separate fields for the respondents instead of one input table field so that it is possible to hide the fields by following the approval workflow as in the guide below:
