I'm trying out Smart Editor in WAB (Non-developer version). Say, the user of this app wants to create a new feature of commercial building. for that, he click commercial in the feature template. Next, he'll be needing to choose what type of building for that commercial category he has previously selected by clicking the 'Type of Point of Interest' box. However, the drop down selection include all kind of types.

So, I've been thinking, to not overcrowd the user with soo many options, can we filter the preset value of 'Type of Point of Interest' to display based on what the feature template that the user has previously selected?

For example, earlier the user selected commercial in the feature template. So, the options in 'Type of Point of Interest' should display for example: Shopping Complex, Entertainment & Shop only instead of everything. 

 

Looking forward for suggestions & solutions. Thanks & have a great day.

Hi @frhilyana_geo11 ,

Thank you for posting your question!

"can we filter the preset value of 'Type of Point of Interest' to display based on what the feature template that the user has previously selected?"

Unfortunately, Smart Editor does not support contingent attribute values (filtering the next possible value options based on what was previously selected).

You may be able to set this up in Survey123 Cascading and external selects—ArcGIS Survey123 | Documentation

Also, please review the following article published on 3 January 2021: Introducing smart forms in ArcGIS Field Maps (esri.com) Smart forms may eventually be made available across most of the platform. See contingent values at the bottom of the article.
