I'd like to set up Collector for ArcGIS so that each person conducting the survey automatically has their name recorded as the surveyor. We'd like to use this as a way to make sure that some of our surveyors are not filling in for others if someone shirks their responsibilities.

In our case we have five surveyors. If surveyor A conducts a survey, then I would like the Collector form to automatically record surveyor A (or some sort of unique identifier) as the person doing the work. I initially thought that setting up Feature Layer Views might be the solution, but according to this document I'm unable to change Value Lists in Feature Layer Views: Create hosted feature layer views—ArcGIS Online Help | Documentation 

Is there some other workflow where I would be able to somehow set each of the surveyors up so that their names are automatically recorded when they conduct a survey? Would configuring ownership of multiple Feature Layers (one for each surveyor) somehow solve this?

Thanks

Thanks Jake, this was much simpler than I thought! I simply changed the settings as suggested from your second link.
