When launching a survey via a custom URL it is possible to include fields that do not exist in the target survey form. This makes sense when launching the URL. But when opening the survey form there is no message to indicate these values failed to be passed to the non-existent fields in the form. It would be great to have a message here and let the user continue.

It helps prevent scenarios where custom URL schemes were initially misconfigured or become invalid against the target survey form. e.g. after a survey re-publish the Field Maps pop-up was not revised correctly and subsequently a lot of data was not collected as intended.
