Workforce for ArcGIS is updating!

Blog Post created by jshaner-esristaff Employee on Oct 26, 2017

Workforce for ArcGIS is rolling out a new update, both to the Workforce web app that is used to create projects and dispatch work, as well as the mobile client apps on the iOS and Android platforms.

 

We updated the web app, today, Tuesday October 31st, at 9:00AM PST, with a few highly requested new features:

 

1. Project Owners can now deepen the integration between Workforce and Collector/Survey123 by passing the Workforce ID field and Workforce Location field to attributes they map on either their web map or Survey form. This provides a loose coupling between work assignments and the work accomplished.

 

 

2. Dispatchers have additional information about work assignments that improve their decision making process. For each assignment, the name of the dispatcher is displayed and the Date/Time of when assignments were created and when an assignment changed state is displayed. 

 

3. Location is important when creating and assigning work and we don't want the panel to get in your way. Now you can hide/show the panel when you want to.

 

 

In addition to these top 3 enhancements we have fixed several bugs in the Workforce web app.

 

November 31st Update - The ArcGIS Enterprise 10.5.1 setup that includes the web app enhancements is now available on https://my.esri.com in the Apps section.

 

Updates to the mobile apps for iOS and Android within their respective stores in December
