Filter Surveys in Survey App

With the inbox functionality of Survey123 it is possible to make existing surveys available (and editable) for users in the field (using the Survey123 app). The surveys for download can be filtered with a where clause in the survey definition. If I want to change the filter I need to re-publish the survey.

We are now looking for a way how the user in the field can filter the surveys he wants to load down for editing (e. g. based on a project number). The survey definition itself should remain untouched, re-publishing should not be necessary.

Is there a way to do this or are there plans to implement a download filter option for the field user?

Thank you very much, best regards,

Hi Jurgen,

This is not currently possible with the Inbox as you suggest. Filters can be applied on publishing but can not be changed or modified by field user dynamically.

We are working on an enhancement to support this in the future however it is currently not available in the app or even at beta level. If you require this type of functionality it can be achieved by modifying the source code of Survey123 via AppStudio and publishing your own modified app. We have seen other customers do this successfully and create a custom Inbox with dynamic search queries.
