Hello

I want to publish a survey123 form to use it as a template in the future, but I don't want to get a  submission URL when I use it and without changing the order of the questions, e.g. the location at the top.

I am using the ArcGIS Survey123 Connect 3.17.55

any ideas? 

 

Thanks in advance

@AliAwadBUK You could look into organization templates. This would let you create a survey based on a template form. The survey that is created would not be associated with an existing feature layer and would create a new feature service on publish as defined by the form structure (unless you add a submission URL).

Hey there,

I'm not sure I fully understand your question, but if you wanted to have a survey to use as a template for the future, you can save the XLSForm in your files somewhere and create a new survey using that file (Create a new survey from file > select the template XLSForm). All questions will remain the same and can be altered as needed.

If you wanted to host the template but not have it be enabled for submissions, you could publish it the same as you would a live survey, and then on the S123 website, change the Survey Status under the Collaborate tab to "Closed".

Not sure that answers your question, but hopefully it helps.

Hey @Vinzafy 

Thank you for your response. my query is I want to create a survey from an existing feature service but I don't want to get a submission url and I don't want the order of the questions to change, because you know when you create a survey from feature service the location will always appear at the top of the new survey.

 

so I have a form I want to use it as template in the future, but when I want to create a survey using this template I do not want to get a submission url and I do not the question to be changed.

I saw someone do it 1 year ago in front of me but I didn't asked how he did it.

 

Many thanks

Ali
