I am attempting to publish a survey with a relationship class but I am receiving the following error:

The custom feature service submission url is not compatible with this survey (Fields not found in the feature service:2)

Any ideas why?

Hi Sarah,

The error indicates that there are 2 questions that appear on the form that are not present in the feature service.  Did you add any questions, including notes, to the survey?  If a note has a value in the name column, it counts as a field.    You can either remove the name value or set the bind::esri:fieldType column to null for these questions.

There were some fields that I wanted hidden and the geopoint field was one of them.

I didn't realize that you can't (at least in the way I did it) make a geopoint question hidden.

Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems like the only fields that can be hidden are text fields?

Hi Sarah

To make the geopoint question hidden, remove it from the XLS file - the mobile app will record in the background.  By default hidden fields are text fields; this can be changed by explicitly setting the field type in the bind::esri:fieldType column.

This is happening to me when I try to publish my survey from a feature class. The survey is actually linking to the related table, not directly to the first service layer. I have enabled attachments on it and I'm trying to add multiple images so inspections can have more than 1 photo, but every time I do this, I have to create a new name field for the new image. I believe this is the reason why the service is not matching to the survey. But, I cannot have multiple identical field names for the images so, how do you get around this one? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!!
