Getting ready for Beta 3!

Blog Post created by HFerrier-esristaff Employee on Apr 10, 2016

Hello all Survey123 Users,

 

There will be a new update of the Survey123 for ArcGIS app coming very soon! But before then, here is some important information for existing Survey123 users:

 

Form items in Survey123

You may have noticed that your surveys are currently being stored in ArcGIS Online as a Code Sample. In Beta 3, this will be replaced with a new Form item type. Any new surveys published with the Beta 3 version of Survey123 Connect will be saved as Form items. Only the Beta 3 version of Survey123 will be able to download and work with these Form items. If you publish a survey using the Beta 3 version of Survey123 Connect, you will not be able to use it in the Beta 2 version of the Survey123 app. Any existing surveys that were created as Code Sample items will still be available to use in the Beta 3 version of the Survey123 app.

 

Disable Automatic Updates in iOS

In preparation for the Beta 3 release, we recommend that all users of the Survey123 for ArcGIS app on iOS make sure that all data collected on their device has been submitted before updating to the latest version. This may involve disabling automatic updating for the Survey123 for ArcGIS app. Currently, Survey123 for ArcGIS does not preserve survey data after an update on iOS. This issue will be addressed in a future release of Survey123 for ArcGIS.

 

Thank you,

 

Survey123 for ArcGIS Team
