Hi community!!!

I was recently assigned some forms to insert new variables; before publishing my new surveys, I made a backup copy of each of these forms and info. However, now I want to restore some of these backups and continue using the same URL with this survey.

Does anyone know how to do this? Thank you!

Hi Pedro,

By a backup, did you create a new item in ArcGIS Online or a copy in Survey123 Connect?  Either way, the 'backup' procedure would consist of replacing the current XLS form with the backup XLS form and republishing.  Note that this only restores the form layout, not the data that has been collected.

Thanks James for your soon answer,

The idea is to restore the original XLS and  the data that had been collected, and continue using this Form.

Thanks!

Regarding the data, did you create a copy of the feature service?  If so, I would suggest using submission_url to set the backup as the 'main' feature service.  See Use Survey123 with existing feature services—Survey123 for ArcGIS | ArcGIS
