I know this is out there, but I've searched the documentation and am unable to find it. I'd appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction. I've enabled the ability for users to update/delete records in Survey123. I just can't figure out how after someone has submitted, especially if they are entering via a web browser, they can go back and edit/delete previous records. Is it only if they do this on their mobile app? Any guidance would be appreciated.

Hi. It is possible to edit records from the Survey123 web app. Essentially, you need to use query URL parameters to indicate which record you want to edit. More details here: https://community.esri.com/groups/survey123/blog/2019/05/24/survey123-tricks-of-the-trade-editing-re...   Please be aware that the query parameters are about to change this coming week once we release 3.9. You will want to use the globalid instead of the objectid. There are more details in the blog post.

Generally, you would not expect end-users to know the globalid of the record they want to edit. For this reason, you will want to create the links to open the survey dynamically through an external application, web map, etc.

Hope this helps!

How do you find a Survey 123 record's globalid?
