Hi All,

I was curious if in S123 or S123-Connect there was a way to generate/calculate a permit number that shows in a field or a note on the survey form rather than just the meta data as in survey123 connect? I know I can do this with time functions in connect but just need an equivalent to a written permit number and have yet to succeed in doing this. I cannot find any other posts or google search articles that answer my question and wanted to pose it to the experts.

Many thanks,

There was a post on using a lookup to a feature service but I can't find it.  Assumes always being online of course.

Hope that helps
