Control which functions are available

My idea might be annoying, especially after the team has spent hours creating great features, however, it would be great to be able to centrally control which features of ArcGIS Field Maps are available. for example on a project I am working on we do not want users to use the markup feature, and we would prefer that it was not available, rather than having to train users not to use it. We have over 1000 users and I just know they will create markup content that will languish in Portal, when they will be thinking someone else will address the fault they have markedup.

Markup is just an example, I am sure we will have the need to disable other features as well.

keep up the good work



Sure there are other features. Most important in my opinion is "Edit multiple". It can damage a lot in some cases.


I have a field worker that uses edit multiple in a very productive way for a certain project because it makes sense in that context. On another project I would like to have that feature disabled to prevent a field worker from cutting corners. If that control could be per map rather than per user that would be great!

Status changed to: In Product Plan

We are planning to incorporate the ability to define some capabilities and default settings in Field Maps web to simplify deployment this year. Collection capabilities are among the first items planned, including the ability to disable/hide the Edit Multiple tool on a per map basis.

Please add a comment if there are specific capabilities that are of interest to you.
