When designing a survey using Survey123 Web, it is possible to set caching for responses that will be repeated so that users won't have to retype their answers for each subsequent survey. I am finding that this doesn't work on either iPhone or Android App. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a way of fixing it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Sorry I forgot to post the outcome of this query. I believe it is a feature of the web-designed forms however the caching has yet to be added to the forms created using Connect. That's my understanding. Best to use favourites in the app instead.
Thanks for the response, Vanessa! What is the favorites feature in the app you're referring to? Also do you know if ESRI has any plans to incorporate text chaching in the next version of the app?
The mobile application has the ability to cache an entire survey form as the 'Favorite' survey; it currently can't cache an individual answer at this time. See Quick reference—Survey123 for ArcGIS | ArcGIS for more information.
I hope it does soon. As for sampling multiple sites in one day, it would be great if for certain questions, one could set it up so the previous response for that question came in as the default for that question for the next submission.
James Tedrick, can you please share the status (or a URL to discussion) of cache? A researcher in my institution would like to use cache answers design in connect (not web). Is it possible to enable cache on the excel form? Thanks in advance.
Another vote. Esp for super long lists where a subset is used a lot each day. Most other form programs attempt to learn user answers over time. Even moving the last picked item to the top of the list would be a start.
