I just configured the Quickcapture and using one registered user for sample data collection. However if the app to be deployed on wider scale say in thousands, What is the licensing term like per user pricing. Can quickcapture be integrated with other DBs like Oracle, Sql Ser or PostgreSQL for receiving field data transmitted.

Hi Lazar

Here some answers to your questions:

Licensing 

The QuickCapture mobile app is included in the Field Apps bundle. This means that any user that is a Fieldworker user type or above will get it. You can also buy standalone QuickCapture licenses and assign them to Editor types. Please speak to your account manager for the costing of these options.

We have plans to allow public projects. The idea is that if your organization has an ArcGIS Hub license you will be able to share a project publically. Anyone with a link / QR Code will then be able to download and use the project. We hope to add this functionality in the next release (1.3).

Databases

ArcGIS QuickCapture supports federated services and you can create feature services that reference an underlying database like SQL Server or Oracle. Please see the following links for more information:

Federating Portal with ArcGIS Server

Federate an ArcGIS Server site with your portal—Portal for ArcGIS (10.7 and 10.7.1) | ArcGIS Enterpr... 

Registering databases with ArcGIS Server

Register a SQL Server database with ArcGIS Server—Manage data | ArcGIS Enterprise 

You can also use non-federated services by adding ArcGIS server services as items to ArcGIS Online. For this to work, the service must be secured using token-based security, and the ArcGIS Server instance must be accessible from outside your organizational firewall

Thanks

Thank you for quick reply.

I do have few more queries regarding Quickcapture. 

As I hosted a feature layer (Point) after creating its schema with sub-types and editor tracking in ArcGIS pro and uploaded it through organisational content page, the fields meant for editor tracking aren't available in the hosted feature layer.

Whether such attribution is not supported for hosted feature layer?

2. Our requirement is, as the field staff captures the coordinates we want their date and time stamping on the data.

3. If not available, can I just create date field and capture the device input through quickcapture app?

1.3 is planned to be released before the end of 2019. The

If you want to capture the exact time at which a feature is captured, add a date field to your layer and then use the Capture Time device variable when configuring the data tab within QuickCapture designer.

The Editor Tracking fields will not be displayed in QuickCapture designer because they are automatically populated by your geodatabase. Remember:

* Editor Tracking fields capture the time when a record is added into the database (not the capture time)

* Capture time is used to get the time when a feature is captured by the user in the field
