Hi @all,

I have a question about the editing options via URL parameter.

As you can see in the "Trick of the Trades" (https://community.esri.com/groups/survey123/blog/2019/05/24/survey123-tricks-of-the-trade-editing-re...), you can call up and edit an existing form using the parameters "mode = edit" and "globalid = ...". So far it works wonderfully.

Another "Trick of Trades" (https://community.esri.com/groups/survey123/blog/2019/02/06/survey123-tricks-of-the-trade-web-form-u...) shows the possibility of transferring a previously defined value to a field using the URL parameter "field: xy = example".

In my scenario I want to combine both. You can see the URL here (you can play around with it, it is a demo):

https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/0d5bbfd305964816947e674a904f14f0?mode=edit&globalId=%7b397F7C00-C...

I am using "?mode=edit&globalId=%7b397F7C00-C8FB-4C53-8BF1-497419D3D535%7d" to call up an existing survey in edit mode and I want to transfer via "&field:wie_lebenswert_finden_sie_die_s=4" a specific value to the lickert question. 

In the initial creation, I specified the value 2 here (you can check it if your using this URL: https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/0d5bbfd305964816947e674a904f14f0?mode=edit&globalId=%7b397F7C00-C...).

I would now like to change this to 4 using the URL parameter, but it always shows me the initial value (2).

Can it be that the parameter "field: xy = example" can only be used for new forms and does not work in combination with "mode = edit"?

What would be a suitable workaround?

Hi Sven,

When opening via mode=edit, field values will not be updated with parameter values at this time.  This is true for both the web app and (when released with 3.10) the Survey123 field app.
