Hi everyone, 

I have a survey within Survey123 that has a repeat of questions that a user will enter numerous times while completing a survey. For each set of repeat questions, most of the inputs will be the same for a given day. Rather than having to enter the data manually for each field when a repeat is created, is it possible to copy the inputs from the previous set of questions in the repeat to save time entering inputs that will be the same? 

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you, 

Christophe

Hi Christophe,

This currently isn't available out of the box with Survey123.  It may be possible using a beta feature (custom JavaScript functions).

I came up with a way using a Defaults page.  See my post here.  Crew loves it.
