Ability to make web requests at runtime

One way to extend form calculations is to provide the ability to make web requests... specifically get requests.

Some use cases:

  • Pull in live weather information rather than relying on user input.  Geometry could be passed as query parameters to a weather api.
  • Many companies maintain their own api's that provide access to internal data.  I image we would need a way to get and pass tokens unless it was public data.

It would be awesome to be able to pull data from the Open Weather API into Field Maps like is possible within Survey123.
