I have created a Web Map on ArcGIS Online with multiple uploaded Feature Layers whose names I've edited to better reflect their contents for the field users using Collector for iOS. However, when I create an offline Web Map, the layer names visible to me in ArcGIS Online (in the Settings/Manage Areas) are the unedited versions.  If I view the map in Map Viewer on AGOL, the updated layer names are visible.  

How do I ensure that the field users are seeing the updated layer names when they download the Map Area?

Thanks for any advice!

You need to change it in the original database level and re publish.

In Catalog or Pro you will see the feature alias. When you save it to offline it is defaulting to Alias or the name as it was published in the first place

Did you change the Alias as well

Hi Robert,

I'm not certain exactly what the "Alias" refers to in AGOL, but I've changed the title in the layer Overview tab banner, and also changed the name below under the "Layers" header on the same Overview tab.
