Local Copy for Editing without Attachments

We are currently using AGOL for all our field work, which involved detailed manhole and pipe inspections. Each time a field crew goes to an inspection, they are supposed to edit the feature and fill out information on the asset. They then take a photo or two and attach it to the feature. We are working with over 5000 assets and this is just for one small area.

Whenever a GIS analyst works and wants to create a local copy for editing of the feature service, our only option is to zoom into a small area and check that area out. To do bulk editing of multiple features, the entire area needs to be checked out which is taking our analysts forever.

I was hoping that Esri could implement a "Create Local Copy for Editing without the Attachment" option or "Create Local Copy for Editing with Links for Attachments". 

I did notice Batch Attribute Editor widget and will look into it to see if this will fulfill our needs, but ArcGIS Desktop/Pro has so many additional tools that we may need to use.
