Noticing strange behavior when passing attribute values through the url that have apostrophes, commas, or other special characters.  Also, behavior is different between iPad and Desktop.

 

Trying to pass a description field that looks like this;

 

On west side of road. 140' south of intersection, 750' before cul-de-sac at end of Settlers.

 

When I pass to Survey123 form on Desktop it looks like this;

 

On west side of road. 140' south of intersection %2C 750' before cul-de-sac at end of Settlers.

 

When I pass to Survey123 form on iPad it looks like this;

 

On west side of road. 140

 

On Desktop it fails to recognize the %2C as a comma.  On the iPad it stops at the apostrophe and all subsequent fields do not get populated.
