I recently created a form to be used on the web app. In it, we use repeat_count to limit the form to three repeats and there are some required fields in the repeat section. When originally published on version 3.16.179, the "Survey contains errors" functionality worked really nice when Submit was pressed - if a user forgot to toggle over to the second and third repeat, the "Survey contains errors" message would appear and the form would navigate directly to the required field in the 2nd or 3rd repeat.
I republished on version 3.17.88 and that functionality has changed - now if someone forgets to toggle over to the 2nd and 3rd repeat, when they Submit, nothing happens. The "Survey contains errors" does not appear and the user is not redirected to the missing required field on the 2nd or 3rd repeat. The "Survey contains errors" only appears for questions for that specific repeat.
Is this a bug? Or is this an intended change? Is there any way to get the behavior from 3.16 back? Attached is a very simplified version of our XLS form. Some of our users are not the most tech-savvy so I expect that some will forget about the 2nd and 3rd repeats and think the form is broken when they hit submit and nothing happens.
Thank you for reporting this! This looks to be a defect, I've gone ahead and logged an internal issue for this behavior. Please feel free to reach out to Esri Technical Support to log an official BUG.
I just got a response back from my Bug Report saying that the information I provided does not appear to be a report of a bug and redirected me back to posting to here in the the ESRI Community. So if anyone else on here has insight about this functionality change between 3.16 and 3.17, I would appreciate hearing about it!
I've reached out to the Support Analyst directly and will get the BUG report sorted out.
