I have created a survey for our field guys to use.  I have additional data that I want to add on the backside once the surveys are completed, for workflow purposes.  Is there a way I can put this in without it showing up on the main survey that the field guys see?

Here are two more methods:

  1. Using Survey123 Connect, simply remove those extra fields from the form spreadsheet, and they won't be accessed by the survey at all.
  2. Create a hosted layer view and omit the fields from the view definition, then use the view layer for your survey.

Hi Wendy,

Yes, you can use the Hidden question type with the field name you wish to use and that will not appear on the form as the users are entering data.
