I was wondering if there is a setting that would disable the option "Copy the sent data to a new survey" when editing data from the Sent box.  The purpose of this particular survey is to conduct an inspection and I wouldn't want someone to pre-populate an inspection form thinking it might save some time.  I would still want the ability to edit and resend, in case the inspector notices something they forgot.

Thanks,

Hi Leon,

I've added this as a potential enhancement for the Survey123 Mobile App.

I'll second this request.  Would be perfect for our use case as well.

If possible, I'd also like to disable the option "Edit and resend survey"

On my survey I ONLY want users to "add new features." So, I changed the feature layer settings accordingly.

But, users still have the ability to SELECT "edit and resend survey", where those surveys are saved into the OUTBOX folder with an error. And those surveys sitting in OUTBOX can be mistaken for not being submitted AT ALL. If possible I'd like to have the ability to remove the "edit and resend survey" button from the app altogether.

THANKS

Hi Geethaka,

Currently we do not support disabling the "Edit and resend survey" or "Copy the sent data to a new survey" feature in the app. Whilst changing the permissions of the feature service cause the user not to be able to edit or send, it will not remove these menu features.

Regards,

Phil.

Hi Phil,

Our crews do not need the Send Later button.  They only use the survey when they are online.  Is there a way we can change the order, the size, and/or the color of these buttons if we can't disable them?

Hi Sarah,

There is currently no way to remove these options via the settings in the app or connect, however you could create a custom version of the app using AppStudio and the Survey123 template, and modify the source code to make the changes as you require.

Phil.
