The new beta version of Survey123 allows the use of a pre-designed standard web map as a base map for mapping inside admin unit polygons. To date, to  find a small admin area such as county, one needs to browse to its location manually using the mouse. The geo-search functionality does not work for attributes / admin names  from the web map itself. Can we not simply type the county name or an admin unit name in the search box and the map pans to that county or location? Then data capture or editing is done in or around that polygon. This adds a great efficiency while using Survey123 app and expands its use.

When we run the Survey123 form on browser, the map is constrained inside the survey form, this adds difficulty in navigating the map effectively. If the map could be floated separately, that would be great.

Thank you
