I have watched a couple of tutorials and I signed up for a trial. I have created my own collector map but instead of using points I used a layer of polygons that identify property boundaries. I have added fields for inspection characteristics. How can I prevent the polygon from being edited? I only want to edit the characteristics and not the location or shape of the parcels but when I go to the files to edit the polygon is highlighted fr for editing and is easily changed inadvertently.

If your service is hosted on ArcGIS Online, you can change the edit settings for the feature service in the Item Details. If you choose "Update feature attributes only", editors will only be able to modify attribute information, and will not be able to change the feature geometry.

It sounds like an individual would have to purposefully edit the location.  So the FAQ suggests looking at map properties. And there is certainly a shortage of supporting documents on GeoNet
