I want to give a field crew an offline wifi only tablet to populate attribute data of existing point features in the field with the Collector app. I don't want them to be able to delete the points, just update attributes, and attach photos. Online this is no problem, but in order to go offline it is my understanding that all layers in the map must have full editing control. This opens up the ability for someone to accidentally delete or add points.
Does anyone have any suggestions or workarounds here? Everything is hosted in AGOL.
Any news on whether or not this will be implemented in the next release of Collector? I believe there is one more scheduled for 2014...I tried to search for a 'what's coming in Collector' document, but I couldn't track anything down.
If you could confirm whether or not restricted editing capability was implemented, that would be great.
The next update for the app will be 10.3 on iOS and Android and that will be out early next year. This release will bring support for restricted editing capabilities like update attributes only. This update will also bring support for editing versioned data in a disconnected mode when the data is coming from a 10.3 server and we will also have support for relationships.
Nope the restricted feature service capabilities will be restricted to 10.3 ArcGIS Server and hosted feature services coming from ArcGIS Online. It will also require 10.3 Collector to make use of these capabilities. The 10.2.7 release of Collector blocks the download of maps that do not meet the full editing functionality.
