Is it possible to have the instance name of my surveys be the object id that is automatically generated? If yes, can you explicitly state how this would be achieved using connect. (The instance name documentation doesn't seem to speak to this directly). If no, is it possible to query the inbox using object id?
Hi Kerr Hewin, currently it is not possible to use objectid in your survey. The ability to retrieve objectid (and other non-editable fields) from an existing feature service and make these available in a survey form has been raised as an enhancement. I'll add your comments to our internal enhancement request and update this thread if/when info becomes available.
Hi @CesarAvila perhaps this workaround suggested by @MJBiazar would be of use? Essentially, you can add an integer question named objectid (or other name of the layer's object ID field), make it read-only, and set its bind::esri:fieldType to null. This should allow the object ID to be displayed in the form (and the instance name) for records opened from the inbox.
