How to configure the 'Choice' item?

Here's the details for setting up a choice item as shown:
Multiple choice item with six buttons
Edit or add a tracker item to get to this screen, then with the 'choice' type selected, tap the gear icon to access the detailed configuration settings.
Set the choice type, then tap the gear

  • The button labels are in order left-to-right, top-to-bottom (first and second buttons are the top row). To have fewer buttons, set fewer labels.
  • The numbers to the left of the labels are the values for each button. These will be shown in the graph and reported in the CSV output (according to the option below). If no values are set, the defaults are 1 to 6.
  • The colors are the colors of the graph dots shown for each choice; tap the color squares to cycle through the options.

  • 'Shrink buttons' will adjust the button sizes to match the labels as shown in this example; the alternative is for all buttons to have equal width.
  • 'CSV read/write values' will associate the numbers associated with each button (the values described above) with the button choices for the CSV output file, and when reading a CSV data file. The alternative is to have the full button title in each row of the CSV file instead.
