    Is there anyway I can see the section headers that are related to question responses?

    Asked by kmclemore on November 17, 2016 at 12:52 PM

    We have a survey that has headers for each section with a description of processes, and the questions that follow are in regard to the section header process. However, when I export the sheet of responses, I cant' align the the responses easily with the section processes. All processes have the same questions, so it makes it that much more difficult to follow in the spreadsheet.

    E.g. Section 1 Header = Process 1 with 6 standard questions; Section 2 Header = Process 2 with 6 standard questions; in the export I only see the 6 standard questions in succession. 


    Basically, Im' wondering if I can see, in the export of Excel or CSV,  a column for each section and that its appropriate placement in the order of process and questions.


    here is an example of how our survey is laid out, each section looks like this:

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to include the texts and headers that you have added to your form in the Excel report, they can be included only in the PDF report. 


    As a workaround, I think that you could use a field or widget to separate the sections in your form, set up a fixed value so all will have the same and you will not need to be checking which fields belong to which section in your form. 

    You could use the Text Area field for example, or the Narrative Fields widget that allows you to display text in your form and you can set the widget to include the text in the submission so all the text you entered will be shown:

    Please give it a try and let us know if it works.
