I have a survey that several people touch, and if would be nice if I could make specific "appearances compact" for the areas that person won't use. Let me know if there's a trick.

Office staff  - Data Entry group

Office staff2  - Assign Bio team group

Office staff2  - Assign Contractor group

Bio & Contractor - Inspection repeat

Office staff 3 - Approves group

Hi @MichelleWilliamsERM 

Thanks for sharing here! The appearance of a question is static, but you could set the the visibility of the question dynamically by using body::esri::visible column, here is the doc: https://doc.arcgis.com/en/survey123/desktop/create-surveys/esricustomcolumns.htm#ESRI_SECTION1_7FC91...

The expression in the body::esri::visible has already been supported by field app, and it will be supported by web app in the upcoming 3.13 release (which is currently on BETA website https://survey123beta.arcgis.com/).

Thanks,

Ruth

It is a bit static but a pulldata to a csv would work.  Grab the username then lookup to see which type they are.  Then use that to hide or show the section.  Could be a pain to keep up to date depending on how many users.  Check out linked csv data.

If you are online then you could do the lookup to a Hosted service.

Hope that helps.

Sorry it took so long to respond to both of you, I saw your replies at a busy moment and logged it as a to-do, that's how long it took me.  

I agree: a CSV to bring in the group, and use the body::esri::visible column to trigger each group. 

Thank you!

Thank you so much!!!
