recently I have started to use ArcGIS collector to collect data in the field. In collector I am able to collect a point feature or other feature class and then add entries to the related table that I have set up using a 1 to many relationship class. This allows me to collect tree entries while timber cruising or collecting data for CFI plots fairly easily.

That being said I have started to explore using QField for this work because I do not want to be stuck in the ArcGIS Online ecosystem and I like the functionality of the QGIS's Attribute form. The problem that I am running into, is not being able to collect the data on the related table that I have set up. In QGIS I am able to create a point, enter the data for that point and then add entries in the related table using the form that I have set up. Is this functionality present within QField? If it is, how can I set it up so that I can collect this related data?

I think this applies: http://lists.qfield.org/pipermail/users-qfield.org/2018-March/000054.html

"What's implemented so far is the possibility to view (and change) the parent object from children. What's not implemented so far is the possibility to view a list of children."

A late reply, but I hope it will be useful for those who are looking for this feature. I spent a lot time myself trying to get it work, misunterpreting the meaning of the supported "Relation reference" widget.

Ciao.
