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.

ArcGIS Desktop is in mature support and will be retired March 1, 2026 so we won’t be considering this idea. We recommend that you migrate to ArcGIS Pro, our fully supported desktop GIS application. See Migrate from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro for more information. Thank you for taking the time to share your ideas. We truly appreciate your contributions to continuously improving the software to help you do your work and look forward to what ideas you have for ArcGIS Pro.
