Add a "Access and Use Constraints" field to the ArcMap map document properties interface

    To facilitate publishing map service records to ArcGIS.com, it'd be useful if a new "Access and Use Constraints" field were added to ArcMap's map document properties interface.

     

    Currently if I want to document any Access and Use Constraints for my map services and associated MXD's, I need to include them in the map document properties' "description" field.  This is OK until I want to publish any given map service on ArcGIS.com.  After publishing a new map service to ArcGIS.com, I feel compelled to go in and manually edit the ArcGIS.com description so that the Access and Use Constraints from associated with my MXD appear in the correct ArcGIS.com field, rather than leave it blank.

     

    If this idea were implemented, it may subsequently help to implement an idea submitted earlier that addresses synchronizing ArcGIS.com map service descriptions with their parent map services hosted by any given ArcGIS.com contributor.
