Hi

I'll preface this by saying that I am new to Collector and still finding my way around.

I have set up a project which collects basic point and line data. I would like to be able to automatically capture when (date/time) a feature was created.

How would I go about doing this? Is it a setting in AGOL (as part of the service) or would I have to define it when creating my geodatabase and data model?

Thanks!

Look for "Keep track of who created and last updated features" in your hosted feature layer's settings in AGOL - ticking this should add fields to your layer to record who created and modified a feature and when these things happened.

Thanks Pete, that has done the trick.

If I could ask another question - is there a way to have the time recorded in local time? It looks to be reporting in GMT, where I'm working in GMT +11hrs.

I've checked my user profile and the time zone is set correctly there. Could it be tied to our organisational account?

These dates and times are recorded in UTC - I believe you may be able to publish your data to AGOL through Desktop with time enabled to specify a different timezone but I'm not sure. We published in the 'normal' way and experienced some confusion around this in summer in the UK because our clocks go to GMT+1, so we're doing something at 5pm and AGOL says we did it at 4pm.
