We have a published survey that we need to increase a text field size. When we set the new size on the esri:fieldLength in Connect and then try to re-publish we get a warning that the data will be lost.
How can we increase the size of the text field without losing the data?
Survey123 Connect version: 3.14.256
Survey published to ArcGIS Online.
I don't know how to do it in AGOL, but here's how you would do it in the Desktop environments, maybe it's similar...
In ArcGIS desktop you can simply increase the field length without having to create a temporary field. The temporary field comes into play if you need to decrease the field size.

Huh, seems like I wrongly remembered my struggles with changing field length... That's good to know, thanks for the tip!
I don't think you remembered incorrectly, @JohannesLindner ...I think this behavior changed within the last year.
