I have a survey with a select multiple field. The report is returning the correct answers, but it is also returning [object Object] at the end of the list (Associated Surveys Submitted: Historic Artifact Tally , Feature Survey Form , [object Object]). I can't find any reason for this. The xls and Word template are attached. My Survey123 field app and Survey123 Connect app are both up to date. 

Thanks,

Chris

Hi Chris,

I have been able to reproduce the issue with the report template that you encountered with a select_multiple question using an "other" value choice inside a group. If you remove the group it is located within the report prints correctly.

I have added this issue to our backlog and we will be aiming to resolve it in a future release to the website.

On a side note, instead of using a manual value of "other" in your actual choice list, and then having a following question with a relevant statement based on "other" being selected, it is also possible to use the question type with "or other" which will automatically create the other field when required and mean when other is selected it is always visible, even if other values are also selected. Currently the way you authored your survey with the relevant statement the additional other field only appears when the "other" is the only one selected. Alternatively you could use contains() or selected(). More info on "or other" can be found here: XLSForm essentials—Survey123 for ArcGIS | ArcGIS 

Regards,

Phil.

I get this object-object message when a survey is submitted.  All the data seems to go through, anybody had this situation before?

Very ironic - I'm making new surveys today and having the same thing happen. Nothing has changed but am now getting the same object-object when a survey is submitted. I suspect it's likely an ESRI/AGOL issue and nothing is actually wrong with the survey.

I'm getting this error with a new survey published from the Connect app. It was working when the thank you form was left as default but once I tried to update it using the web designer options it now shows the [object Object] method on submission.

That's right, it seems to be a bug.
I have solved it by specifying the message from the connector when publish, see following thread Change submit prompt text
