I'm trying to update instance name for use in the inbox, etc.  It seems that I can't use fields a from a repeat.  They come out blank in the app.

 

concat("Dispatcher: ",${entered_by}," ID: ", ${eventid}, "First Responder: ", ${worker1})

 

Where eventid and worker1 are from the repeat table.

 

I don't find any reference to this in the help or in forums. Maybe I am missing something.

Hi Bob,

You can't use a question inside a repeat with the instance name directly.  You may be able to use it along with a join() function.  Another thing to keep in mind is that the default behavior of repeats in the Inbox is to not query any repeats - you would need to add the keyword `query` to the bind:esri:parameters column on the begin repeat line.
