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?

Thanks,

Hi Melissa,

We currently do not have an ETA for implementing this. Would you mind discussing how this would help your ability to use it?  Feel free to message me directly or e-mail me at jtedrick AT esri.com

Hi Julien,

Unfortunately, this is not possible with Survey123 for ArcGIS at this time.

Hey James, 

Would you happen to have an update to whether or not the public can access the Inbox of Survey123?  As it stands I am being prompted for a login even though the survey is shared with Everyone and I'v checked of Add and update records.  Obviously it's still not available.  Do you have any idea if or when this functionality will be made available.

My survey will be used by crop specialists who will be monitoring the spread of cereal leaf beetle.  I have a series of repeat questions set up around beetle counts based on various visits throughout the growing season.

Hi Dan,

There is not any update on allowing public surveys to use the Inbox.  From your description, it sounds like you don't want a truly public survey, you would want to restrict it to just your crop specialists.

Hey James,

Thank you for getting back to me. We are currently testing this functionality with our specialists but the ultimate end goal is to have farmers use this tool to report their CLB counts.  The main reason why I decided to use the Inbox in the first place was so that our users would just have to enter in their field information once and come back to that same field to add their counts throughout the growing season.

Alternatively they would have to submit a net new survey every time they are back in the field doing observations.  If there's an alternative way to capture related (repeated) data I would definitely be open to any and all suggestions.

Thanks again for your help James

Rather than inboxing, I would like to see a refresh option on public surveys. We make minor changes to lists and to webhooks, it would be great if people could just refresh the survey rather than deleting it and having to dredge up the original link to re-download.

Hi James,

We currently have an existing enhancement in our backlog related to the behavior you describe.  I will add your comments to it.

Best,

Brandon
