We want to be able to run a report and determine which of our users or items are currently utilizing our assets in an offline capacity. For example, if we deploy a web map with feature services configured for offline mode and synchronization in Collector, we would like to be able to query that web map and determine which users still have the content offline and when they last syncd. There could also be multiple iterations of these reports by which you could query a user and see which maps/services they had offline.

The premise behind this request is that if we have an update or maintenance window for our content, but we still have users that have offline content and haven't synced or removed the data from their device, then we run the risk of orphaning their work because of our modifications. If we could run a report and determine a list of users for any given application (offline web map)  then we could coordinate with them effectively in advance of changes.

Hello Brian,

Thank you for submitting this idea!

There are a few options today that might help you avoid orphaning data that may not have been handled before any modifications were applied. A resource like the AGO Assistant can be used to quickly see which services are included in a particular web map. If you are aware of all feature services your modified data is included in, the Replicas resource will show every current replica that is checked out. In most cases, this will show the identity of the user that created the replica, and when they downloaded or last synchronized their offline edits (Replica Info).

The information above is meant to share how you can manage this issue today. The information is out there, but there is no tool covering the task you've outlined with this idea.

Thanks,

Scott
