Can the inbox be viewed without logging into ArcGIS online?
When sharing a public survey (the URL under the collaborate tab) the user bypasses the esri login screen and downloads the survey in the app. Once the survey is downloaded, the inbox icon appears (as configured in survey123 connect) however, no survey results are visible. If the refresh button is selected, the app prompts a login to ArcGIS online. Is this expected behavior?
Solved! Go to Solution.
For our organisation, the inbox is needed in our public survey for the specific reason that people are losing all they previously sent survey when we do a minor update on the survey (because they have to delete it in order to update). If the update fonctionaly is enhanced, then a public inbox might be less needed. But, in fact, we would also need an update on the "Sent" folder fonctionality, because their would still be a potential for lost data on our survayors devices. See the Edit I made to my post here that explain the problem: https://community.esri.com/thread/220216-survey123-ui-enhancement
If the survey is already on their device, when users access it via the link it opens the existing survey on the device, it does not refresh the survey. If we push an update, the only way to get it down to the device is to remove the survey and re-download.
I just tested again and the behavior described by James Wilson is correct. I am testing using Survey123 version 3.0.134 on windows 7.
EDIT: I just tested with Survey123 version 3.0.149 and the same behavior is seen. Survey123 is opened as an anonymous user and the survey is public.
My apologies, in jumping into the conversation mid-stream, I missed that this was a survey being used in an anonymous mode. Currently, you are correct that the survey update workflow in this situation requires a delete/redownload.
