Hi - I have had a public-facing Survey123 form in production since the beginning of the year. It uses the geocode appearance on a geopoint field, which used to work in the beta version. However, when 3.13.234 and the full functionality of the geocode appearance was released, my survey broke and I can't get it to work properly anymore.

My main problem is that I need the field that has the geocode appearance to be a geopoint question (mapped on the backend). It seems like the new version only works if the appearance is used on a text field, in which case my data isn't mapped on the backend. This ruins my whole workflow because the whole point is to map the data in a dashboard. How can I get the Survey back to working with geopoint capturing the geographic data while also using the geocode appearance? This is a major issue right now because all new data being collected by the public is not getting mapped (and many other consequences). 

Thanks!

Hi Shelby,

You can populate your geopoint using pulldata() to extract the coordinates from the text question that has the geocode appearance. I attached an XLSForm with an example of that workflow.

Depending on your workflow, you may want to add a hidden appearance to the geopoint or set it to read-only.

Thanks,
