Hello,

I think the answer is no, but I will ask anyway:)

I have a use case that is perfect for Survey123, lots of lovely form data to fill in. However, the application we are trying to replace also allows the user to select a feature on a map, and then fill in fields in the form from the feature. e,g, select a pipe and put its material into a form field.

I can think of a way of doing this by first selecting the feature in collector and then hyperlinking to survey123 with the details in the URL. But I would love to do this all in one app if I can.

any ideas?

Have you taken a look at Field Maps?

yes, but it does not give as good a user experience as Survey123 when it comes to data entry.

Yes, but I'm hoping it will be! It was better the last time I checked it out verses the first time.

We have a few other requirements that I think lead us away from field maps. Whichever application we use, it will be opened via a URL from another application. For example, a work order number will be a parameter on the query string. I need the work order and some attributes from a selected feature to be saved on an inspection object. As far as I am aware we cannot use the parameters on the query string as a global variable that can then be put into any field on any feature.

If it does then that would be amazing. Perhaps we need to get hold of documentation.

Enable the Inbox on your survey.   Then, if you browse to your inbox and refresh it - you'll see all the features listed.  You can then view them on the map and select a particular one and begin a survey on it.   If you want to narrow down what you can see on the map, the inbox will allow you to define a query expression.
