Select a feature (or snap to a feature) in a linked web map

At the moment, it is possible to use a web map as a basemap in a Survey123 form. This allows us to add feature layers into the map, which can provide useful and important contextual information. There's more info on how to do this in the blog post Survey123 Tricks of the Trade: Configuring survey maps.

It would be really useful if users could also snap/select a feature in the survey map and pull the geometry values (point, line or polygon) into the new survey record. The intention is not to edit the feature layer in the map, only use the same geometry.

This is only currently possible using a separate web map and URL parameters, or experience builder. But it would be much more streamlined if it could be achieved within the survey form itself.
