"Survey 123 for Damage Assessment"

What do you like best?

Survey 123 is a great tool to turn anyone into a GIS data collector. This program is very straight forward and easy to use. The survey design tool can build and initiate the online database for you making it quick for rapid deployment. The survey logic is fantastic allowing for required questions, that are only required when they matter. This can be a major benefit over collector when someone who is inexperienced is operating the software. Surveys can also be issues to users who do not have an account with AGOL so there is no need to issues everyone doing damage assessments their own account. One of the biggest benefits for our agency is the ability to publish an online survey. This has allowed use to more efficiently collect reports from the public themselves. The survey logic allows us to easily steer which questions they actually need to answer even though the question base itself is massive.

What do you dislike?

Working with attachments because a problem in survey 123. Attachments are photos or other data attached to an actual record when information is collected. We use a process where the same record can be visited multiple times via an inboxing filter in order to collect further information throughout a damage assessment. We have problems however, when it comes to photos. If a previous user has submitted photos, a later user can not. Also, it seems there are issues period in submitting photos on any record that is not the initial creating. Users editing a record within survey 123 cannot see photos submitted be previous users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are a lot of prebuilt templates and services that can help you get started if you don't know where to start. More advanced features are becoming available all the time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Survey 123 is making a drastic improvement in our ability to collect more in depth data after disasters in relation to damage assessments.

"Survey123 is very user friendly and easy to use."

What do you like best?

I like the ability to use excel to create and modify surveys and to see what the finished product will look like and test it before you publish it and make it public. Creating form is an easy workflow to learn and it is a great way to gather information from a large workforce or small.

What do you dislike?

If you make a change to the form after is has been published it is hard to get the new changes without deleting any previously gathered data.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for an intuitive way to gather data from 1 to many individuals, Survey123 is an economical answer. The surveys are easy to create and test and to publish. Users can gather data using their smart phones or tablets or enter the data on a pc. The forms can be customized to your liking with background colors or pictures and text that matches your organization and liking.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have created several surveys used for collecting data from potholes to trees to citizen reporting of problems within the city. It is hard to get people to use something new, but slowly as they see the power and ease of gathering information, more people will use it more.

"Can be a great tool for field data with the right preparation"

What do you like best?

There are a lot of great data-validation and form-logic tools available to publishers using this product. Those with experience using other XForm and XLSForm (ODK, Ona, etc) will have little problems adjusting to the Esri implementation found in Survey123.

What do you dislike?

By default, published forms are backed by hosted feature layers (in ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise) which limit your ability to manage data (my opinion). This has lead me to experience a number of issues with reliability and I have since migrated my data source to my own ArcGIS Server Feature Services.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Test, test, test, test first so you can work out the kinks BEFORE you send folk out the door. Though this (and many other) products from Esri are marketed as "Easy to deploy" you always get out what you put in... So do your homework, test your surveys and monitor your system throughout the data collection process. You will run into hiccups, make them little hiccups by having a good game plan

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Field data collection, first and foremost. The ability to validate input and enable users to bring their own devices to the field has greatly improved our data quality.

"Great field app, but more report template functionality needed"

What do you like best?

I like that this can be built on top of existing data, or collect new data. I think the new report template functionality it awesome, however it lacks some requirements for my organization at this time, and I'm not sure if this will be addressed in the next release - see below.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if you could export multiple survey records to one report template. For example, we are using Survey123 for conservation restriction monitoring and end up with multiple survey records per property. We would like to be able to select all records related to one property and export them to one reporting template, instead of having to export them to separate reports, and then us MS Word to bring them all together. This is tedious, and may steer us away from Survey123 in the future if we can't do this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Streamlining of field workflows; in a year we've gone from notepads and handheld GPS units to an iPad and small bluetooth GPS. This has eliminated redundancy in data entry, etc.

"Great tool"

What do you like best?

It is an amazing tool to gather and analyze surveys quickly and effectively. Very easy to use and easily accessible on mobile devices which is a big bonus.

What do you dislike?

No issues or complains thus far. Not sure how well data can be integrated into softwares outside the ARCGIS package.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is the best solution currently available for collecting data from field surveys.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Minimum training is needed for field crew members. Getting accurate data from field work is integral to most projects, in some cases the field crew may not be tech savvy or field experts.

"Survey 123 and location data "

What do you like best?

The tool allows for a wide range of business workflows to be structured for a range of skills as a collector or survey taker. We have implemented a very complex survey intended for survey takers that have novice skills. Volunteers are able to see additional help advice and capture pictures to validiadat esurvey results

What do you dislike?

The tool needs to have better integration capabilites with GPS and bluetooth devices in order to capture location at a better scale than the tablet of phone can offer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ease of use and comparision to collector

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Capturing Accessible recreation feature information with hard measurements. We are able to create a feature class for the data that can then leverage the other Esri products for display and anaylsis.
