System requirements

There are certain browser and software requirements to run each element of Survey123.

Online connectivity is needed to access the Survey123 API and ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise. For this reason, a connection to the internet and access to either ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise are required for Survey123 Connect and the Survey123 website, as well as for the Survey123 field app to download and submit surveys.

Note:

The Essential Apps Bundle does not provide access to the Survey123 field app. Either the Field Apps Bundle or Survey123 add-on license is required.

Note:

Public surveys can be completed using both the web app and the field app and do not require an ArcGIS account of any user type.

ArcGIS roles can be used to restrict privileges that are initially included with a user type. For example, if a Creator user type is assigned a User role, its privileges to publish feature layers are revoked. Similarly, if a Field Worker user type is assigned a Viewer role, its privileges will be similar to those of a Viewer user type.

ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise 10.5 and later are supported. Portal for ArcGIS 10.4 and 10.4.1 are also supported. For more information on ArcGIS Enterprise, see Use Survey123 with ArcGIS Enterprise.
