I'd like to generate a url that when clicked launches the Collector app on a users device. I'm having trouble finding what the "scheme name" is for Collector.

Examples:

MobileDeepLinking.org 

Here are a few examples of deeplinks for popular apps on iOS:

DeveloperDeeplink – e.g.Purpose
Twittertwitter://timelineOpens the Twitter app and links to the user’s timeline
Facebookfb://profileOpens the Facebook app and links to the user’s profile
Yelpyelp://Opens the Yelp app (note: this example does not include any routing parameters)

Hi! Please take a look at our Collector integration GitHub: GitHub - Esri/collector-integration

This is currently supported on iOS and Windows, and coming soon to Android.

Great stuff! I just made a very small filemaker solution and can open collector from it.

Anyone got it working the other way?  Launch Filemaker from Collector?

This was helpful, Kylie. I assume that deep linking = custom URL scheme? This was removed from at least the iOS version of Collector a while back. Glad to see it is back.

Deeplinking appears to no longer work in iOS 10. At least not for me

Has anyone else experienced this?

I wasn't using deeplinks before I upgraded to iOS 10 so I don't have a reference point. My links are launching the app, but I haven't been able to get them to open a specific map in collector. Curious if this is what you're experiencing?

Nothing happens, that's the thing.

When I tap the deep link in the map popup, it doesn't load the app I want (e.g., ArcGIS-survey123://).

If I paste the deeplink URL in Safari, the app opens.

could be an issue with the URL scheme & survey 123. I'm using Collector so my urls start with "arcgis-collector://". Can't find documentation for survey 123 but maybe try all lowercase?
