One standard question-level help feature that would be a nice add to Survey123 would be placeholder text.

Here's a basic example of placeholder text ( This would be different than default text because 1) it's greyed out, and 2) the user wouldn't have to delete it first to fill it out like you have to now with default text.

This can be done when using Survey123 connect to create the survey. Populating the "Hint" field with the desired text and using "placeholderText=@[hint]" in the "body::esri:style" field will give you the desired result.
