In Survey123 Web, you can create an "Address" question in design view. However, when I open a survey originally developed in Web in the Connect version of Survey123, the Address-based question appears but does not work (ie. does not locate addresses). Is this intentional or a bug? Any workarounds to enable the same functionality in Connect?

Hi @JavadSalimi,

The "Address" question type in web designer is actually a text question with geocode appearance behind the scenes. You can use a survey you create in web designer with Connect or field app and with address question and it will work the same, as the XLSForm it creates is the same. Note you need to be using 3.13 version of Connect and field app for this to work. Please refer to these two blog posts:

Thanks for the quick reply. That must be it - I'm on 3.12 so I will try upgrading now. I appreciate your help sir.
