I would love to be able to search on other layers I have in my webmap for collector, not just the layer I am editing

Hi Matt -- You can search layers that are configured for search in the map. Please see Configure feature search—ArcGIS Online Help | ArcGIS  for details on how to do so. Would that enable the type of search you are looking for?

Yes, that is what leads me to believe it should work in collector, as it works in AGOL when I set up the webmap like that.  But when it gets to collector, I do not see any way to change the layer I want to search on.

You don't need to change the layer; just enter your search string and Collector will search with the place search and layers.

Wow!  Intriguing!  Unfortunately when I put something in the search box and hit enter it closes the collector program rather suddenly.

What platform are you working on, and what version of Collector are you using? Is it a map you can share publically?

I am on iOS 10. I am assuming the latest greatest of collector. I keep

everything updated.
