There are a lot of questions related to getting the address of a geopoint to populate a text field. Here are four of them:

https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-survey123-questions/how-to-get-address-from-geopoint-field/m-p/...

https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-survey123-questions/autofill-address-in-textbox-when-marker-is-...

https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-survey123-questions/using-survey123-geopoint-to-automatically-f...

https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-survey123-questions/pulldata-quot-geopoint-quot-location-quot-r...

But, they all seem to be referring to working with the field app. Even the main reverse geocoding blog everybody refers to is apparently working with the app. "Reverse geocoding can be performed in the field app by..."

This technical article very briefly mentions the pulldata based on an address method:
https://support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000019081

I'm working with an ArcGIS Survey 123 online form, and I can't seem to find direct reference to it and reverse geocoding. When I try pulldata("@geopoint",${location},"reversegeocode") in the calculation field all it does in the map is drop the list of geocoders down from the search bar.

My goal is for the end-user to fill out an address in the text field and have the point appear on the map. It's to save a bit of frustration.

Hi Jared,

For end user to enter an address in a text filed and populate the point from the entered address on the map, we now have a beta feature to achieve this. This new feature is only available on survey123 beta web application with a geocode appearance.

Please check out the "Geocode appearance in the Survey123 web app" article from our EAC website and use the beta web form to test this feature.

You will see the entered address is matched to an address candidate and pull the lat and long value. You can then use the lat and long value to populate the geopoint using the calculation field concat(number(${latitude}),' ', number(${longitude})) and pass the calculation for a geopoint field.

Hello,

(sorry, my english is poor)

i am trying to do the same thing :

Hi Vincent,

This is currently a beta feature and here is the link to the article for details.

I am attching a sample of the XLSForm for you to check this feature. Using this form to publish from connect and open the webform, you should be able to enter the address and see the location on the map at the bottom of the form.
