survey123‌survey123_connect_for_arcgis survey123 geopoint‌

Hi.

I am trying to publish a survey using Survey123 Connect for ArcGIS which will be used to identify unsafe areas for pedestrians.  I would like to use my organisation's custom locator service to perform the location search instead of the ESRI World Geocoder. 

In the form preview within Survey 123 Connect, the search bar in the geopoint window matches my organisation's locator service.  However, when I publish the form to the Survey 123 website, my geopoint tool defaults to a global view and uses the ESRI World Geocoder.

Is there a way to configure the geopoint search bar either on Survey 123 Connect or the website?  My survey is fairly uncomplicated, so I don't have much of a preference.  I have managed to get the mapping functionality working in the ArcGIS online Geoform application which uses a webmap, but I would like to use Survey 123 for the added user entry functionality.

Any help is much appreciated.  Thanks.

Hi Jacob,

The location search uses teh list of locators that have been configured for your organization.  That being said, it sounds like this form may be shared publicly - is that the case?

Hi, James.  Thanks for the quick reply.  The form is being shared publicly.  Will this affect the locator that is available?  Is there any way to disable the ESRI default geocoder for publicly shared geoforms?

Hi Jacob,

Yes this may affect the locators presented, as it is normally based off a property linked to the user.  There isn't currently a method to set a locator explicitly to use; I've taken this in as a potential enhancement.

"There isn't currently a method to set a locator explicitly to use; I've taken this in as a potential enhancement."

did this ever get added? our organization has two locators in it, but I'd like to restrict a 123 form I have to only one of them.

We also need the ability to use a locator view instead of the default World Geocoder.
