ArcGIS Survey123

What's new in ArcGIS Survey123 (February 2024)

The February 2024 update to ArcGIS Survey123 is now available! Read to learn what’s new:


Copy visibility rules in the web designer


You can now copy visibility rules across multiple questions in the Survey123 web designer. Say for example you have a survey where you want the respondent to take a photo before any other question in the form is shown. You can create the visibility rule once, and then apply it in bulk to other questions in your survey!

Check out the video below for details.


Kick-start your survey designs with generative AI


The Survey123 web designer now includes a new experience to help you design surveys through a conversation. Think of this as a chatbot designed to help you create a draft of your survey design.  Watch the video below to learn the basics.



To try the new Survey123 assistant, you will need to ask a user with administrative privileges to activate it for you. Here are the steps:

  1. Login into with ArcGIS admin credentials.
  2. Click on Organization
  3. Click on Settings
  4. Open the Extensions tab
  5. Activate the Survey123 assistant (Beta) and Save


Translate survey designs with the click of a button


Do you need help translating your survey designs to different languages? Good news! The February 2024 release of ArcGIS Survey123 includes auto translate features in both the Survey123 web designer and Survey123 Connect.


Auto translate in ArcGIS Survey123 leverages the latest advancements in machine translation. With the click of a button, Survey123 translates question labels, choices, hints, constraint messages and all text in your form design into languages of your choice.

Machine translation is not perfect, so you should always review your forms before they are shared with others.  This feature has been labeled as Beta, as we are still refining it, but we believe it can be of great benefit to all of you who need to translate surveys into multiple languages. Give it a try!
