I think I'm missing something and maybe any of you can enlighten me.
I've seen this video of the past UC (https://uc2021.esri.com/live-stream/19775151/ArcGIS-Survey123-An-Introduction-and-Whats-New) and I understood that the filed calculations are already available the Survey123 web designer.
I've also seen this Story Maps with the same information in the What's new section (https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/213b214a74a0489dae915ab46677adf1)
But when I try to do it myself the option is not available neither the hide field option.
As I said, probably I'm missing something, but I don't know what 🙂
Thaks a lot in advance!!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Calculations in the Survey123 web designer will be supported in the next Survey123 release (3.13), along with the ability to hide questions. This functionality is currently available in the Survey123 beta website, which is available via our Early Adopter Community.
Stay tuned to our Esri Community blog for announcements about the next release.
Hi - Very happy to see the Calculations in S123 Web Designer. I see that there is a "Joins" function that seems to concatenate and is helpful. However, I can't seem to find the documentation on it. I am trying to find out if I can add new lines, commas, and spaces when concatenating fields. For example, I have Address, City, State and ZIP fields that I would like to concatenate with nice formatting so that the result is the equivalent of:
123 Main Street
Frederick, MD 20152
That would require me being able to add a <newline>, a space and a comma. Any idea where I can find the documentation?
Thanks for sharing here, and we will include more on string concatenation in the doc.
Here is an example to create a formatted address with the line break, comma, and space.
The comma and space can be added directly into the calculation field with join.
Adding a line break is not directly supported in the website calculation, and this is a valid enhancement we considered to support in the further release. The example below shows a workaround method, the line break field is a multiline text question with only line break (enter key) as the default answer.
Thanks so much for the prompt response! I just tested it and it works beautifully!
I will use this workaround until we get a NewLine function implemented. You just made my night.
I have been using the field calculations for a little while now and it is hugely helpful to our workflow. However, I noticed that you cannot use data from a Dropdown in a calculation. I find this a bit odd, because it is really just an esriFieldTypeString. Am I just not understanding it properly, or is this currently a limitation of calculations in the Web Designer?
