Hi,

I'm planning on using Survey123 to support a participative science project. User will be volunteers, mostly working with the field application offline. I'm concern that some users may forget to send their survey when they get back on the grid.

Is it possible to set the mobile app parameters to automatically send the data when a user enters a zone with cellular or WIFI connection ? That would be a big game changer for me.

Thank you.

Hi Jean-Pierre,

Survey123 does not support a 'submit when re-connected' mode; one of the reasons for this is that we may not know whether the connection will last long enough to complete submission or (in the case fo ArcGIS Enterprise) whether the network that the device is connected to has network visibility to the submission location.
