Collector for ArcGIS is the great application for surveying indeed. Unfortunately, after the process of collecting data using Collector for ArcGIS, donwloading the attachments from ArcGIS Online takes a long time to finish.

It would be great if we can download all of the attachments to our local storage at once! As one ZIP file or  a folder, whatever. We can save time a lot!

I also agree with this!
To download all attachments at once will be very helpful. I created a GeoForm Template to collect the customers' information. When I want to use the pictures attached, I have to download them one by one. It wated time I think. If this capability is implemented, that would be very beneficial!
