Embed a survey using an iframe
You can embed a survey in your custom web app using an inline frame (iframe).
ArcGIS Dashboards allows you to convey information by presenting location-based analytics using intuitive and interactive data visualizations on a single screen.
You can embed a survey in a dashboard using the embedded content element. When using this element, you must choose the feature layer to target, add the URL to your survey, and set the maximum number of features to display. Optionally, you can add parameters to load an existing survey record.
An example of embedding a survey in ArcGIS Dashboards is described in the Mosquito Spray Exclusion blog post.
To embed a survey directly in your custom web app, create an iframe element and add HTML that represents the survey.
On the Collaborate tab of the Survey123 website, click the Embed in website link under the Share this survey section to open a tab that provides HTML to embed your survey in a web page.
In the Embed options section, you can hide cosmetic survey elements when embedded. Elements that can be hidden include the options at the top of the survey, the header, the survey description, and the footer, as well as the option to ignore the survey's theme.
