Hello,

I cannot get  anything in Survey123 to prepopulate from a URL from AGOL (Collector or Field Maps).  It opens Survey123 but the field I need populated is blank.

I boiled it down to a very simple test and still cannot get it to populate. 

 

This is my url:

arcgis-survey123://?itemID=7f0e5eb93d424c1ea532da3d684c6a75&field:plot={st-cty-plt}

 

The itemID is correct. It does open Survey123 from Field Maps. The name of the field and the name of the attribute {st-cty-plt} are also correct. see below:

 

From survey123:

From AGOL:

SeanPerks_0-1646248608974.png

SeanPerks_2-1646249651952.png

 

 

Has anybody else ran into this issue or have any suggestions?

I even tried: arcgis-survey123://?itemID=7f0e5eb93d424c1ea532da3d684c6a75&field:plot=doggy

to try to get it to auto populate 'doggy' into the plot field and it is still blank. 

 

 

 

Thanks!

Okay figured it out.

My original URL scheme was correct. 

I checked other forums and it really is an '&' 

arcgis-survey123://?itemID=7f0e5eb93d424c1ea532da3d684c6a75&field:plot={st-cty-plt}

 

The problem is that it does not like "-" in st-cty-plt  even though that is what it says in the attribute table in ArcPro and on AGOL. When I used {st_cty_plt} it worked.

Try this instead:
arcgis-survey123://?itemID=7f0e5eb93d424c1ea532da3d684c6a75?field:plot={st-cty-plt}

The first URL parameter needs to be preceded by a ?

Subsequent parameters should be preceded by a &

Wow, I can't believe I missed that. Thanks!

That seems like it should work and should fix my original issue. However, now when survey 123 opens up after I click the link, it is stuck in a loop where it shows it is downloading. The image below should really be a gif, just imagine it downloading form then thumbnail and form again and doesn't stop. Any ideas where to look? 

 

Made a new survey to see if there was something wrong with the first one 

arcgis-survey123://?itemID=65b123278c8142afbf58bf0b50c4bc36?field:plot={st-cty-plt}

 

st-cty-plt, itemID and field are correct.
