We are pleased to announce the release of Collector for ArcGIS v17.0.3 on the iOS and Windows platforms today. The Android platform will be following shortly with a release in October.


Here are the top 3 key features of this release:

1. Passing collection information through the URL scheme
When using the custom URL scheme to open Collector through another app, a website, or an email, you can now include information to start a collection. Pass information about the layer to add a feature to, as well as particular attributes and the values to assign to them. This improves integration with Workforce for ArcGIS as well as 3rd party app integration coming with CityWorks.


2. New 95 percent confidence interval setting

When doing data collection, Collector allows you to specify the accuracy you require to use the GPS to collect locations. By default, accuracy is calculated using RMS, however government agencies like the USFS and BLM require accuracy be calculated using a 95 percent confidence interval. We are now providing this option.


3. Use Managed App Configuration with ArcGIS Enterprise
Streamline your app deployment by pushing the URL of your ArcGIS Enterprise portal through your mobile device management (MDM). When your users open the app, they'll see the OAuth screen from your portal.

In addition to these new features, there are a number of bug fixes and improvements that have been made. 


Please refer to our What's New section of the documentation site for the full list of updates.
