Hello.

I'm trying to create a new group which consists of answers from questions in another group. But I'd like to make all the new as only one single question with all the previous answers even if they were from several questions before. Is this possible?

And as a followup, can I limit the number of possible answers in an array or checkboxes in a whole question group, i.e. all questions in a group as a total sum? I'm wondering because I have a new group built out of replies from a previous group, but I want to limit the number of answers in the next session. If I could make one single question of all previous answers - I see how I can limit the number, but if not, I need to be able to limit in a whole question group.

Not sure if I explained this correctly, I hope so.

You can use Array Filter to only show the selected answers from several previous questions.

For example:

Q1:
- Multiple choice
- Sub-question codes (1, 2, 3, 4)

Q2:
- Multiple choice
- Sub-question codes (5, 6, 7, 8)


Q3:
- Multiple choice
- Sub-question codes (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
- Array filter (Q1;Q2)

Hey Tpartner, I didn't know that you can have the array filter over two questions! Good to know.

Yep, as long as the sub-question codes are unique in Q1 and Q2, the Q3 sub-question will show if it is checked in either Q1 or Q2.
