We have heard from an Esri Partner that Survey123, like the other field apps, are being migrated to the Field Maps platform and that Survey123 itself will no longer be supported starting 2022.

Our team has not seen any announcement to this effect. However, if true, Field Maps does not have the same range of functionality and does not have a field app (i.e. computer install) option, posing a potentially significant disruption.

Would it be possible for someone on the Survey123 or Field Maps team to provide clarity on this?

@Anonymous User   The following statement is incorrect: Survey123, like the other field apps, are being migrated to the Field Maps platform and that Survey123 itself will no longer be supported starting 2022.

This article has information about the specific field apps Esri is planning to retire and when: https://www.esri.com/arcgis-blog/products/collector/field-mobility/deprecation-notice-for-selected-field-apps/

Applications like Survey123 and QuickCapture will continue to evolve and grow. Esri has no plan to phase out these products. Quite the opposite.

This is not what I have heard.  I heard 123 will not be integrated into Field Maps since it is a diff code base.  But it was still to keep going.  It is the most popular app esri has right now.  It is light years ahead of Field Maps.

Would be weird...and devastating to our team.  We just converted our entire program to 123 over the last 3 years.

Say it ain't so!

Agreed! It seems unlikely since dev into S123 has been consistent and even built into EXB. It could be a result of miscommunication, as S123 is not listed here: https://www.esri.com/arcgis-blog/products/collector/field-mobility/deprecation-notice-for-selected-f...

That being said, like your team, if Esri Inc is considering phasing out S123 on any timeline we would need to understand what those plans are to avoid real challenges. Hoping an Esri team member can shed light :)
