Qualtrics - Loop and Merge

Just one example of how Loop and Merge can be used: If you want to allow 10 uploads instead of 9, use a question such as "How many uploads do you need if you can only do one upload per question without doing zip file?" Following that is the loop and merge block, which loops the uploaded file question the number of times the question ahead is set, and you can pip the field or loop number in for them in the question.
