Hello,

I have a Survey123 to collect data for environmental monitoring. I have a Geopoint feature and I wanted to see if it is possible to use the new pulldata function to get live weather data for those points. I know that I need to write a Javascript (learning about creating that now!) and then have that call an API from OpenWeather. Has anyone done this before and have any guidance?

Thank you,

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

If you register Survey123 early adopter site, you may want to take a look at this document. This document provided an OpenWeather sample to demo how to use custom pulldata javascript function:

Hello,

Is this document with the sample demo still available? I do not see it in the Early Adopter site any longer.

Thank you
