One of the wonderful additions to Field Maps is the ability to control settings for the mobile app in the web app.

It would be very useful to be able to set the location profile for use with the project as well.

I agree @Anonymous User. A common problem for us is that our field staff may remove and re-add the Field Maps app from their devices, failing to establishing a location profile when they reloaded it. It would be great to establish a location profile as part of a users AGOL and/or Portal profile. This would allow:

  1. admins to establish the correct location profile for field users from within AGOL/Portal
  2. field users to always be using the correct location profile. 

I asked this question here.

Thank you @DougMorgenthaler !



This would be very useful. Field users have no idea what OSTN15 is! It would be useful if administrators could set  global settings in Field Maps web app e.g token expiry, location profile, auto sync off, disable directions, QR code scanning, control cellular data use.


We have a large number of devices with high accuracy GPS receivers deployed in our organization. We also collect data over a large geographic area, each requires specific location profiles based on the local real time correction data source.

It would be very useful for us to be able to deploy a number of location profiles programmatically to our AGOL org, and these would then by synced to any device one of our users signs in to.
