Set Sections not to appear by default in Group Entry, and points to note about why some sections may not appear correctly.
The sections below outline how to set a field not to appear by default in group entry mode. They also outline why some sections are being grouped together are are not appearing correctly when selected.
Users can enable the "Group Entry Tabs" in the Form's Advanced Properties so each section appears to enter separately in group entry mode (shown in the image in the following step)
During Group Entry, you could select or deselect each section to be hidden or to appear during the Group Entry Process
Now you can set a section to not appear during Group Entry Mode until it is selected using the "Group Section Selected". Set this up in the Section's Advanced Properties.
Any sections set to No for "Group Section Selected" do not appear during Group Entry Mode until they are selected.
The fields in the section only appear once they are selected
This means you could have a form with a lot of sections and only the first section is set to appear. Then, you can select or deselect the sections when required.
IMPORTANT: when you save and close the form and open the results in group entry mode, ONLY the Group Section Selected will appear
When you reopen the data in group entry mode once it has been saved, the same Group entry display settings will appear, e.g. only the first section will appear as selected. Any sections set as No will be unselected (as shown in the image in the step below).
The section setting do NOT affect the fields that are displayed by default in the Athlete History and Reports Mode
Please note that your sections need to be named uniquely or the system cannot differentiate each section. If they cannot be differentiated then they will not appear correctly when selected. See below for more details.
Depending on how you name your sections, if they start with the same word/characters, these cannot be differentiated on the system. See below for examples of what will and will not be differentiated:
- Nutrition 1
- Nutrition 2 -these will "group" as Nutrition 1 because the first word is over 8 characters and then it is followed by a space. So, when Nutrition 1 is selected, Nutrition 2 will also show.
- Nutrition3 (e.g., without a space) will NOT be grouped as it named differently before the space.
These will NOT be differentiated
- 3.Nutrition- these are all group together because the numbers are the start of the section are not recognised, so they are grouped.
These will be differentiated
- A Nutrition
- B Nutrition
- C Nutrition- these will appear separately because the system recognised the text and the space as different.
In the image here there are three sections named similarly and they will NOT appear separately when selected, they will group together
As outlined in the image in the step above, because they are named similarly and numeric fields are not recognised when differentiating between sections, they only appear when all selected
If you do have sections that start with the same words/title, try adding in a letter sequencing system: A, B, C etc. For example, A. Nutrition and B. Nutrition
When the sections have been renamed to A Nutrition, B Nutrition, C Nutrition they can be differentiated.
Make sure you test that ALL of you sections appear and disappear when selected individually. If they do not, then you will need to change the section headings accordingly so that they do.
