There are a few differences between the two applications themselves.

  • The main difference is that Survey123 is a formcentric app as Collector is a Mapcentric app. What this means is that form-centric app is focused on a list of questions, as where Collector is focus driven on collecting your data on a map.
  • Survey123 also allows the use of smart forms. This allows the creator to have required entries as well as conditional statements.
  • Survey123 also allows for anonymous access to your created forms. This is an ideal solution for users who want to crowdsource data.
