FAQ: Is it possible to cache an answer to a question in Survey123 Connect for ArcGIS?

Question

Is it possible to cache an answer to a question in Survey123 Connect for ArcGIS?

Answer

No, it is not possible to cache an answer to a question in Survey123 Connect for ArcGIS as in the Survey123 for ArcGIS website.

Note:
To cache an answer in the Survey123 for ArcGIS website, in the Edit tab, check the Cache answer to this question check box.

Check the 'Cache answer to this question' checkbox

As workaround, use one of the following options to prepopulate an answer in the Survey123 Connect for ArcGIS application:

Use a default answer

In the XLSForm, set a default answer in the default column of the question. This prepopulates the survey question with the same answer for each new survey. Refer to Survey123 for ArcGIS: Default answers for more information.

Set the current state of the survey to act as favourite answers

This option saves the answers to the whole survey, not just the answer to one question. Click Paste answers from favorite from the menu to paste the answers into a new survey. Refer to Survey123 for ArcGIS: Favorite answers for more information.
