Hello everyone,

 

I'm working mobile GIS workflow with Esri platform. however, as you know, in Colombia Wi-Fi network isn't available in 100%, particulary in rural areas. 

For that reason, we have to guarantee that assigments and information in general (maps, features, images, survey, etc.)  are available in that cases.

We propose the next workflow:

  1. Planning (ArcMap - ArcGIS Pro)
  2. Coordinate (Workforce for ArcGIS)
  3. Navigate (Navigator for ArcGIS)
  4. Capturing (Survey123 for ArcGIS & Collector for ArcGIS)
  5. Monitoring (Operations Dahsboard for ArcGIS)
  6. Sharing (Web Applications)

For the steps 2, 3, 4  it's necessary works offline, but Workforce for ArcGIS doesn´t work in offline mode.

The question is: Do you know a way to work with Workforce in offline mode or any option to replace it?

And if there is a tech support that I can contact please let me know.

 

Thank you in advance!

Laura G.

Hi Laura, thanks for your question.

Workforce does not currently support an offline mode; but that is in our roadmap to support.  We are targeting the second half of this year.

If a user looses network / wifi connection while using the Workforce app; they will still have access to their assignments in a read-only manner, until they establish their network / wifi connection.

Hi Patrick,

It's on our roadmap for 2018.  We're tentatively planning it for around User Conference.

I've got your details in our Offline issue in the Workforce repo, so you'll be hearing from us as we get closer to having something to test.
