We're experimenting with Field Maps and Survey123 and I was hoping to build a URL which would be listed in a features popup in Field Maps. Once selected, it would pass over some basic attribution as well as the geometry of the selected feature to create the surveys geoshape data. All the reference material I've read so far talks about linking to an existing feature (not what I want to do). The URL would be in a popup of another layer, so essentially the survey inherits the geometry from the other layer, but they are distinctly separate entities. 

Is this possible?

For future reference, we abandoned this idea. Not sure if it was possible, but the amount of information that was to be passed over the URL in the form of vertice x and y coords was phenominal. So instead we cnow return a centroid of the selected shape, convert to Lat and Long and pass those across the URL for geopoint location. Works a treat 🙂
