I created a feature class with domains so my field staff could have drop downs when using collector app. How can I prepare this layer for use with my AGOL map and add it as an item? Zip the geodatabase with only that feature in it? If I export to a shapefile, that would not support the domains. Any ideas?

I would start here: Prepare your data in ArcGIS Desktop.  This is one of several tutorial pages for Collector that cover creating a feature, publishing it as a service and putting it in a map for Collector. (You do not want to zip the geodatabase or export it to a shapefile.)

Thanks. I am checking on parameters that our organization may or may not have set up as I ran into some errors publishing the feature class from the tutorial instructions you suggested above.

Back to my original feature class I created......I wanted to be able to access and edit those fields where I created a domain but when I start an edit session, I see no dropdowns in the table to select the domain attributes I put in. I need to get this to work first before its applicable to use in the field on a mobile device or share in AGOL. The domains are text string fields and I know you can use text cause I've done it before in other  geodatabases. Any suggestions anyone?

I am trying to understand where in the process you are.  Are you still creating your feature in ArcMap?  If so, it seems like the domain may not have been assigned to the field.  I am attaching a some images that show some screen captures in ArcMap and ArcCatalog.  The first shows properties of a created domain with the domain name circled.  The second shows a field that uses the domain; you can see the domain that has been assigned to the field shown by the arrow.  The third is the dropdown you should see when you are in the edit mode inside ArcMap.

If you are at another stage in developing your feature, could you attach some images that show where in the process you are?
