So, I'm a newb to Survey123 and I've figured out a lot, but I still need some help. Rather than searching all of Google and YouTube to find exactly what I need I figured it might be easer to ask. 

Question:

What I'd like to do is create a question using the geopoint, I think, to have the user open a map and place a point in the center of land parcel(s). What I need to actually get is the Parcel ID from each parcel selected. 

Pain Points:

  1. When I created my survey I created it from the advanced template in Survey123 Connect and from what I've listen to on YouTube it seems like I should have created it from the Parcel feature service that I need to collect data from. Not sure if that's correct or incorrect
  2. Is there a way I can have the user click in one of the maps somehow and actually select (highlight) the parcel(s) they want to choose that would work better than using the geopoint type?
  3. Can I somehow add the parcel feature class that I have into the survey I've already created and adapt it to be selectable for a question in the survey?

If there's a video somewhere that answers most of these questions and someone just wants to drop me a link to that instead of explaining it that works just fine for me. I haven't found exactly what I'm looking for quite yet though and I've been looking for about 2 days. 

Thank you, 

Mark

Check out this post  https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-survey123-questions/auto-populating-field-from-another-feature-...

If you can I like to go the opposite direction - load the features in Field Maps then launch 123 from there passing the parcelID over to the form.  Then relate keeps everything connected.  It also works offline where a lookup of course would not.

Hope that helps

Thanks for the quick response Doug. Just for anyone else who may stumble upon this thread, I'm also looking at this:  https://www.esri.com/arcgis-blog/products/experience-builder/real-time/using-experience-builder-and-... because it seems like closer to what I was envisioning. I usually find the solution that I'm looking for right after I ask the question. It's ridiculously ironic.

Mark
