Set Custom Geo-locator Search

Hi - I've seen the various posts describing how to use a custom map from AGOL within Survey123 and I'm wondering if a custom geolocator can be applied to that AGOL basemap and used within the Survey123 App? 

In my area, the default ESRI geocoder used for addresses isn't very accurate.  So, if I could replace that geocoder with a field value from my assessing data, it would provide better results.

I anticipate many residents would have trouble finding their property on a map.  So, if they could just enter their address to pin the location, that should provide more reliable results.

Hi Christine,

The Survey123 field and web apps will use the geocodes that are configured with your organization; you can select which one to use in the field app.  See Geopoints—ArcGIS Survey123 | Documentation .  Note that for public surveys, only the ArcGIS World Geocoder will be available as that is a known public geocoder.

@JamesTedrick So, for all public surveys, the public can only use the ArcGIS World Geocoder and not an organization's locator that is public?  If I wanted the public to be able to search for a park name from our locator, they cannot do so?

Might this ability be possible in the future?
