1. What is the general goal of the feature?
This feature would mean that every time we use select_multiple, ODK would create a new column for each of the possible answers and could code them as 0/1 based on how a person responded to the question.
This feature already exists in KoBoCollect.
2. What are some example use cases for this feature?
I often avoid using select_multiple due to the extra data cleaning required prior to analysis. This means that we end up asking study participants more questions using more select_one and may ultimately lead to longer surveys and perhaps poorer responses to surveys as time goes on.
3. What can you contribute to making this feature a reality?
User rather than developer and so couldn't really contribute to the development of this feature.
