Adding external services as basemaps for S123

I am supporting teams responding to Hurricane Michael along the coast of Florida. They are using  Survey123 to gather information about sunken vessels and would like to use aerial imagery taken after the storm instead of a standard ESRI basemap as part of a Geopoint (staff will have access to the Internet) while in the field. I've looked at several help files on how to edit the .info file with the service address with no luck (it always seems to overwrite what I just added). The service address is: https://storms.ngs.noaa.gov/storms/tilesj/services/tileserver.php/wmts.I know Collector would be another tool, but the ease of use Survey123 provides, it is the better tool for the level of GIS expertise collecting the data. I have tried to download the imagery to create a TPK file, but the imagery I need is 75 GB (the resulting TPK file would make it unusable for distribution among so many different users and devices).

 

Any help anyone can provide is greatly appreciated. The guys in the field appreciate it, too.
