How do you connect existing feature layer from the web map to survey123 as prepopulated answers to questions?

Correct! Target being the survey field name, source being the field name from the clicked feature.

With the recent updates to Survey123, you need a globalID. In your layer's settings, turn on "Enable Sync" to easily add the field. You can turn the setting back off after, if that's a particular concern.

I have the globalid on, but it still was not able to work.

This is a brand new survey with no data yet, on arcgis online I have a hosted feature layer that has points that I want to use to prepopulate questions in the survey when my field workers use it. 

I am unsure how connect this layer to the survey using url

What does your generated URL look like? It's case-sensitive, so "globalid", "globalID", and "globalId" are not the same. Make sure you're using globalId={globalid}

<a href="arcgis-survey123://?itemID=f8bce2f086864f25b685c0eab03e2652&amp;field:globalId={globalid}rel=" nofollow="" target="_blank" ugc"=""><br />Add New Point!</a>

This is the URL that I am using

Ah. For successive URL params, you need to separate them with & characters.

https://some-url?firstParam=something&secondParam=somethingelse&thirdParam=andSoOn

Using that format, make sure each field gets its own &field:fieldname={field} parameter.

And my mistake, I re-read your earlier post. As you are using the features to create new entries in the survey dataset, you don't need to reference the feature's globalID. That's for editing existing features via survey.

To essentially "copy" values from one layer into a totally separate survey, it's a bit simpler.

target1={source1} do you add your own fields instead?

Correct! Target being the survey field name, source being the field name from the clicked feature.
