    When attaching a file in the Map Viewer for ArcGIS Online, rather than having to click “Choose File” and then navigate to the file location it would be very useful to be able to Drop & Drag multiple files and load them as attachments.
    As part of our company’s work flow, at the end of their work day office personnel use map viewer to set up the next day’s assignments for our field technicians by dropping a point on a map for each location the tech must visit the next day.
    For each point the adjoining paperwork must be attached, so when the tech arrives at the location they simply look on their tablet using collector, to see what work is required. The feedback I am getting from our office personnel is that having to navigate to the file so they can attach it is a nonstarter, and they will not use this technology. They want to be able to drop & drag the files to attach them.
    Please consider adding this enhancement soon.
