I've added a point feature service of buildings to both the dispatcher and worker web maps, then configured the web maps to allow locating features both for the feature service and geocoder.  In the map viewer I can search by building name and find the location.  In the Workforce Manager I search to add an assignment, and am not able to search by the building name.  I also don't see that the search box allows the user to choose the geocoder.

Should this work?  Are there plans to add this functionality?  My use case is I would like to dispatch IT staff to various buildings to complete work, and allow the dispatcher to search for the building.

David,

This is not supported in the 1.0 release of Workforce but we are working on it for our 1.1 update which is planned for late August.

In that update, we'll support searching using the web map search configurations.  For geocoding, we will support the default geocoder for the organization.

Has this functionality been added? I've been looking, but haven't been able to find a way to add our "map locations" to the location when creating assignments.

Thanks,

April

Was this functionality added?  I'm trying to do the same thing when creating assignments.  I can do the search in my dispatcher map but not in the actual workforce project.  Please let me know, thanks.

Hello Dawn,

This ability was added and is in Workforce.  If you've configured the Dispatcher web map with the ability to search for the field; Workforce will search those same fields.  A few things to confirm:

- Check that you've changed the Dispatcher and not the Worker web map

- On the Details page for the Dispatcher web map, under Settings, scroll to the bottom and ensure that you've enabled Find Locations By Layer and configured the layer and fields you'd like to use for search.

Hi Craig, this is still not working.  I can search for an address, but not on a field, although it works well in the Dispatch map.  I can't seem to reply in geonet.    Dawn

I have the same issue/concern.  I have created a workforce project.  I have added a hosted feature layer into the dispatchers map called PollingPlaces.  I have gone into the details and enabled search by a polling place name.  I am trying to create assignments to send a worker to a polling place.  On the add assignments tab - when I try to search for the assignment - I can't reference the polling places as it brings up the geocoder as the search results.

Hi Adam,

One thing to confirm; check that you've changed the Dispatcher and not the Worker web map.

If you have, I'd like to take a look at the project.  Can you invite me to the project as a Dispatcher?  My named using is craig_sp

thanks,

Craig
