How can I give the user different list based on the answers to previous questions?

I am trying to create a structure inspection survey. The inspector takes specific photos based on the structure type and orientation.

The user will select a structure type (Bridge/Culvert), then will select the orientation(NorthSouth/EastWest). Based on these two answers, there will be four different results and 4 different captions/checklist for photos. The number of photos to be taken can be different based on the answers. The result of each survey should be the same as the excel sheet.

Hi Caner,

In looking at your sheet, I see only the photos for the Bridge & NorthSouth selections.  Do you have a list for all 4 combinations (Bridge vs Culvert and NorthSouth vs EastWest)?

In general, you can create an image question for each photo you would require on the form and have it hide/show using a relevant statement.  See https://community.esri.com/groups/survey123/blog/2015/08/24/using-formulas-in-survey123 and Form expressions—Survey123 for ArcGIS | Documentation for more details.

I have used this way but it creates 4 different fields. Is there any way to make Survey123 pick one of the list options based on the previous selections? I attached the template to the question.

Hi,

One way to consolidate the answers of the questions would be to set the select_multiple questions' bind:Esri:fieldType values to null and have a calculate question (let's call it photo_label) that uses the coalesce() function to get the answer from the 1 of the 4 that is not null:

coalesce(${BridgeNS},coalesce(${BridgeEW},coalesce(${CulverNS},${CulvertEW})))
