We have made some often-requested improvements to how “repeats” behave in Enketo.
The existing “Repeat Count” feature has now become fully dynamic. This means that if at any point the repeat count changes, the number of repeats will automatically be adjusted.
To avoid accidentally removing repeats that contain data, we recommend using an advanced form-building technique that requires a confirmation. You can see this technique in action by clicking the image below. See also the XLSForm. Using this confirmation technique is completely optional though.
First Repeat in Series
Enketo is now starting to support the removal of the first repeat in a series as well. At this moment, a repeat count of 0 (or none) will remove all repeats. We are currently discussing enabling the manual removal of the first repeat when no repeat count is used.
This feature was made possible by funding from the amazing people at Esri.
