Pre-Announcing Collector for ArcGIS v18.0.1 (Android)

Early next week we will be releasing a bug fix update to Collector for ArcGIS on the Android platform. This update will address a number of strategic stability issues including (BUG-000103613, BUG-000107543, and BUG-000107684). This update is planned to launch ahead of our April update to ArcGIS Online as well. With the April release, a security enhancement for hosted tile layers will go live and this update is required if you would like to download hosted tile layers for offline map use.

 

We will update this blog post when the release is available in Google Play and the Amazon App Store.

On Monday, March 12th, we released an update to Collector on the Windows 10 platform. Version 18.0.1 is a small, focused bug-fix update that addresses a number of issues that are affecting customers.

You can find the list of specific issues that were resolved in the What's New section of our Collector doc website.

Version 18.0.1 updates to both the iOS and Android platforms are coming soon!

Collector has documentation, but while out in the field mobile workers often need something lighter weight—something that can be printed and taken along (especially if working offline). They need a single reference sheet that helps them with common tasks and some issues.

 

We’ve always relied on admins and project leads to create these for their mobile workers (and to those of you that have shared yours with us, thank you!). While there are some project specific components, there is a lot that is common in such sheets. We’ve taken some of the common questions and tasks and compiled them into a template you can use to jumpstart creating your own cheat sheet for your mobile workers, and it is attached to this post for you to download, customize, and use.

 

This is our first draft, so we’re looking for your feedback. Is this something you’d use? What works for you in it, and what would you change? Is there something missing? Is there extra info that you don’t want to see? Leave a comment and let us know! If you’d like to share your customized version with us, please email it to Collector4ArcGIS@esri.com so that we can see how you use or plan to use this template.
