Hi All -

I setup a inspection Collector app that pretty much follows Jeff Shaner's Feb 1015 blog posting.

I was wondering if there is a way to calculate a field on the fly after data is entered, maybe by setting up some kind of a trigger to run a script...or maybe another way?

Example: Field worker enters in 2 numbers, 100 and 25 and saves the data.  A third field is then calculated based on the numbers entered (100-25) for a value of 75, then the data is displayed within the app.

Field1: 100

Field2: 25

Field3: 75

Thanks in advance.
Tom

So far as I know, Collector does not support "smart form" functionality like calculations, conditional lookups, and so on.  ESRI's Survey123 does support smart form functionality, but it is form-centric...not map-centric...and does not support edit of existing data.

Thanks for the quick response and confirming what I suspected.

I don't know about Survey123.  I don't see it helping with my current project but it definitely might help with another.

Thanks

Well that is legitimately disappointing. On the up side, this gives me time to prepare for a more dynamic Collector environment as updates come out.  Thanks for answering Carl
