In our survey, we made some screening questions on the first page of the survey and put a note for some participants that they are not qualified for the survey on the second page, while other qualified participants are directed to the rest of the survey. We'd like to hide or remove the "back" button for page navigation to prevent them from going back and changing their answers in order to participate in the survey. Is that possible in the current version of Survey123? Thank you!

Or, is that possible to create two sets of thank you note, one for the unqualified participants and the other for the general participants?

Any help will be appreciated, thank you!

Hi Emily,

There is not a way to remove the 'back' button in a multipage survey.

With regard to the thank you notes, is this a form being filled out via the web or the field app? The web app does not have the ability to display different notes based on data in the form; while the field app does not have a thank you note by default, it could have 2 general notes that display depending on a value in the form (presumably, you would have a value in the form to distinguish unqulified/qualified).

Hi, thanks for the responses.

So then -- we would just have to make multiple "groupings," but there's no

way to remove the "back" button -- I feel like this is limiting (perhaps

something Esri is looking into?) for example, if offering an incentive in a

survey, a participant could go back to change their answer for the

incentive even if they don't qualify...

With regard to the "thank you" notes, we will look into this and let you

know if we have any followup questions...

Best Regards,

Emily

Hi Emily,

I've taken you're suggestion with regards to disabling the ability to revise questions while still in initial capture as something to consider; you may also want to post it as an idea at https://ideas.arcgis.com

It would be clunky but you could have the read only column check for a value of the question after it.  If you only need to hide that one question it would be pretty easy.

So if Field 1 is the one you do not want changed set the Field 1 read only column to string-length(${Field2}) > 1 for example.  You could pick a question from Page 2 for Field 2.  I guess they could still go and remove the page 2 field value and it would reappear.  If you are worried about that add a Field 3 that has a calculate field with a calculation of once(Field2).  Then use this field 3 in your read only column.

Hope that helps.
