How to set default value based on the previous survey

Hello everybody,

I've got this little thing challenging me for a few days now : I'm trying to use the value of a given answer (for instance the answer to "Id_Number", which will be an Integer), and set it as the default value for the next survey. The main idea being that the value of the "Id_Number" in the survey n+1 is likely to be "Id_Number in survey n"  incremented with 1.

I know that you can calculate a field based on a previous question, but so far I haven't found any way to calculate a field based on the same question in the previous survey.

Any idea on how to proceed?

Thx in advance,

Hi Alain,

This is not currently possible. The only way to pass data from another survey (feature) is using a custom URL with parameters to pass the values from the existing feature to a new feature, but you will need to do this outside of survey123 to get the custom url scheme to work.
