    We have one column per answer, so that the reports are readable and clear in most cases. There is no option to change that behavior at this time.

    Do I need one field for every question?

    Yes, this is possible solution. You can use the fields with single answers, in this case you will have different columns on your reports.

    However, please be careful with modifying a live form. If you remove some question (field), that question (column) will be removed from the form answers.

    Thank you.
