Is there a way to make sure the survey advances to the next question when you hit the return key on the keyboard?  Right now our survey seems to be skipping over dependent questions to the next non-dependent question.

Hi Kevin,

What version of Survey123 Connect and the field app are you using and on what device make/model? From version 3.6 the return and tab key is supported for navigation for some questions types.Or are you using the web app? 

For the field app, not all question types are supported for a focus change into them by the tab or return key. Only the input type questions (text, integer, decimal, select one or multiple) and questions that have an input box (barcode) that can take the focus will be navigated to when press return or tab key. Therefore questions such as date, time, image, annotate, signature, audio etc will not take the focus and therefore will be skipped in the tab order.

Regards,

Phil.

Philip,

   I am developing using the beta version 3.7.37b and the field apps are using the 3.7.54 version of the app.  The return key does actually advance inside the form, but here is an example of what we are seeing:

With the XML layout below, a number is entered in question1 and the return key is pressed on the tablet's keyboard.  The cursor moves into question 3 and question 2 appears simultaneously instead of moving into question 2.

Integer question1 (no relevancy)

Integer question2 (relevancy if question1 != null)

Integer question3 (no relevancy)

Hi Kevin,

Yes, all bugs can be tracked and subscribed to via the Esri Support website, and the following link will take you directly to this bug: BUG-000126691: Survey123 for ArcGIS returns the cursor to the first.. 

You can also contact Esri Support directly or through your account manager, and have them attach your account and details directly to the existing bug internally. This is very helpful for us and provides more additional information and repro steps, and helps understands the number of accounts/users affected and helps prioritize the list of bugs in the backlog.

Regards,

Phil.
