Hi there,

I created a complex map using the Beta-viewer with several grouplayers. There are groups for the designs and groups for the data that needs to be collected in the field. We noticed that the layers with the data that needs to be collected can only be edited using the Collector or Field Maps app. No data can be added/collected.

Now when we remove these layers out of the groups (so these feature layers are single so the say)  we can actually collect this data. So this is purely a problem using fieldapps and not in the browser for adding/collecting data to the map in these feature classes. 

So my question is: Will there be any updates on this? I dont know if this is problem of the Beta-viewer or a problem of the Collector of Field Maps apps.  

 

With kind regards and hope to here from any of you.

Hi @Sietse_de_Haan,

Thank you for your post. Unfortunately this is a known limitation right now and is an issue within the ArcGIS Field Maps app, Collector app, and underlying ArcGIS Runtime SDKs as well. You may find that you won't be able to identify features in layers that are grouped as well. 

We are working to resolve this. The resolution will be in a future version of the ArcGIS Field Maps app.

Thanks!

Hi @JeffShaner 

Thanks for your reply! Much appreciated and good to know that you guys are working on a solution. 

One more question just to be sure. The Field Maps app will replace the Collector app? And no more updates, meaning new features etc, will be available for the Collector app?

Hi @Sietse_de_Haan apologies for missing your question. Yes the Field Maps app will replace the Collector app and we will not be developing/releasing any new capabilities within the Collector app. However, if a serious issue is reported while the app is still supported (we plan to stop supporting Collector on Dec 31st 2021) we will fix and provide updates.
