I have a data collection exercise where the data collectors will be interfacing with multiple surveys whilst in the field and offline.  

These surveys will take place in a very large remote areas without internet or cell access (hence the offline maps (mmpk)).  I have created an offline map for the extent of a Canadian province (168.8 MB).  This appears to work ok, however, since I have 4 separate surveys, I *think* I will need to download the mmpks to each survey.  

Does anyone know if there is a way for me to download it once and access it from each survey???

Many thanks, BKS

Hi @BKS,

If you want to share a mmpk across multiple surveys you need to place it in the Maps folder, this can be done by sideloading on the device. All surveys on that device will have access to any map packages in this folder. See below documentation for more information:

It is not possible to download the mmpk from within the survey or via the user and survey menu into this location to be shared with other surveys.

Regards,

Phil.
