In our case the system created
single-select “other” text field needs to be set as
required and constrained to
string-length(.) <= 50.
Is there a way of enforcing these requirements on the “other” field via the
Defining a field that matches the generated field name (
single_select_name_other), it yields the following error:
“There are two survey elements named ‘dwelling_type_other’ in the section named ‘PLACE_TYPE’.”
The only way I can think of to get around this issue is to remove the
or_other suffix from the
single-select question type, add a “other” value as a selection in our
choices sheet en manually handle the “other” text field.
Is there perhaps another approach one can take?
