I am trying to create a field operations solution that involves sending workers to parcels. I have Field Maps set up with an accompanying dashboard, now I'd like to provide a dispatcher with the ability to assign workers to a set of parcels.
When a worker opens an assignment in Workforce and clicks the "Open in Field Maps" button, Field Maps does in fact open, however, no feature is highlighted; it is just centered on the map display on the mobile device. It's critical that the in-progress assignment select the corresponding parcel in Field Maps. Is there a workaround for this functionality at this time?
Is the assignment related to 1 parcel or more than 1 parcel?
While not supported OOTB there is a way to configure this if the relationship between the assignment and parcel is 1 to 1. It will involve storing the GlobalID for the parcel on the assignment feature, in say the WorkOrderID field or one you add to the Assignments layer. You will then need to hand edit the url Workforce uses to open Field Maps.
Let me know if this works for you, I can provide more detailed steps.
In order to make this work you'll need to store the GlobalID of the Parcel on the Assignment. There's a few ways you can do this:
Any questions - please let me know.
