Turn fields on/off for export in Survey123

It would be really helpful to be able to turn off fields in the feature services holding survey data so that when exported, only the desired fields are downloaded. There are lots of redundant fields (pull data fields, creator/editor, etc) that need cleaning up once you download into excel. If I (as the admin) could set the feature service in AGO so that my users could just download the cleaned up fields, that would be a big help.

I will heartily thumbs up on this idea. I don't need to see repeat_count fields, note fields, and other unnecessary fields in the data. It's confusing for my project managers to review and extra steps for me to maintain on the backend. Having another field in the XLSForm like "Do Not Export" that we can set to true would be excellent. Or if we could check some box on the Schema tab on Survey123 Connect, that would also be beneficial.
