QuestionWhere Builder 1.0.351 - 29/09/2014

This is a significant new release of the app which adds a number of new capabilities as well as providing quality improvements.

This release has been successfully tested against the WCAG 2AA standard for Accessibility and also adds supports for Internet Explorer 8 (for instances only).

The main enhancements are:

  • Email action: we have added a new email action type which allows you to configure emails to be sent when someone responds to your survey. We support two HTML email templates – a Receipt email, to send an email back to the user confirming their responses and a Confirmation email, which allows you to send the responses to a preconfigured email address in your business.

  • Response ID: we now generate an ID for the responses to your survey. You can save this ID to your feature service and provide it to the user either in the completion text or as part of the receipt email.

  • Image Upload Question: we have added a new question type that you can now include in your surveys. This allows your users to upload files e.g. photos or documents as attachments to their responses. If you choose to use the new email action the files can be attached to the emails as well.

  • Customised Completion Text: you can now customise the completion text that the user sees when they have completed responding to their survey. This can include the Response ID, any of the responses entered and the messages returned from any Geoprocessing Task actions.

  • Location Question: we have enhanced the Locator Question. The map now automatically zooms in when you select an address or place. We have also added an optional minimum scale to allow you to force users to zoom in to an appropriate scale before they digitise their location. We have also changed the instance so that the screen does not resize as the map loads.

  • UI improvements: we have made a number of changes to the user interface to improve the usability of the app. This includes a new map selection widget in the provisioning of the Location question.

  • Metadata: we have improved the metadata added for instances. The description can now be formatted (e.g. bold, italic, font colour). We have added metadata for Access and Constraint. We had added default entries for description, access and constraints and a default tag.

We have also fixed a number of bugs.


QuestionWhere Builder 1.0.204 - 29/04/2014

This release includes a number of quality improvements and enhancements. Updates to the question builder functionality include the ability to have conditional questions which depend on the answer to a previous question, the date/time question can now be set as date only, the location question supports lines and polygons as well as point features and there is a new gazetteer only location question available which doesn’t require a map. It is also now possible to select your own custom gazetteer from ArcGIS online, rather than using the global geocoding service in location questions.

Updates to the survey action functionality include the ability to append the results to an existing feature service if preferred, instead of creating a feature service; and to run a new action to execute a geoprocessing task when a survey is submitted. The feature service permissions are now initially set to private, so that users can edit the feature service to make their response, but they may not view other responses. This can be changed in ArcGIS Online if required. Finally it is now possible to set multiple actions to run on submission of a survey.

Unable to create a new feature service that starts with a number.

The application can not create a new feature service which name starts with a number. (FB49923)


QuestionWhere Builder management page may not load correctly in Internet Explorer 9

There are some elements in the management page which can cause IE9 to jump into something it calls “Quirks mode” which stops the page from loading correctly.

The solution is to turn this mode off if it happens. You can do this by pressing F12 and then changing the "Document mode" to "Internet Explorer 9 Standards"
