I have two survey's that respond to one hosted feature service. One is a request that is submitted in the browser and the other is how inspectors respond to that request using the app. The now() on the DateTime field for the request works but it doesn't work on the inspection side in the Survey123 app. Please let me know if this is a bug or if I have something wrong with my code. Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just letting you know we have recently updated the 3.14 beta builds on the Early Adopter Community and the next release will include major improvements to the expression calculation engine, new calculation modes, improvements to loading relevant questions and repeats, and other fixes to repeats, nested repeats and repeat count. With these improvements we see faster loading surveys, increased stability, less crashes and ability to optimize calculation workflows.
The issue you reported above can now be solved using the new calculation modes available in the latest 3.14 beta builds, where you can set calculations to always run or be manual or auto.

Thank you thats exactly what I was looking for! I just encountered the bug where the now() function is not working in the calculation column when loading the survey from an inbox.
By chance, is the release of 3.14 still expected for the end of the month??
