Copying "Repeats" to new surveys not working

Hi Ismael Chivite James Tedrick,


I built a survey form with the intention that users can click on a “sent” item and “copy the sent data to a new survey,” when adding new records.

I used “allowUpdates” in “bind::esri:parameters” to allow users to edit previously sent “repeat questions.”


But, I noticed this procedure doesn’t create new related tables for the newly copied survey records, but rather edits on top of the previously sent “related tables,” and moves it across to the new record. (i.e. deletes the previously sent “related tables”).


Due to this error I changed the “bind::esri:parameters” to blank. But, when copying sent data to a new survey, I noted that any of the pre-exiting information on “repeat questionswon’t be saved onto new related records upon submission. Rather, you have to add “new entries” to "repeat questions" for any additional related tables.


I was really banking on this feature to work. It would be greatly appreciated, if you guys could come up with a solution soon.


Thanks so much,
