I have Advanced ArcGIS for Desktop License (10.3.1) but certain GIS Techs do not- they are using Basic License. If I create a version within SDE geodatabase and create feature class(es) for the Technicians, will they be able to edit those feature classes (add, update, delete records). I understand, for any schema change the Techs will have to make a request and I will make changes to the database schema!
you may wish to move this from the GeoNet lounge to some place that might be more appropriate to getting an answer. The GeoNet structure is here GeoNet Community Structure might I suggest Managing Data
Here is a link that will help clear up what can be done with a ArcGIS for Desktop Basic license:
As the document that George provided would suggest, you could replicate your SDE feature classes to a file geodatabase that the techs can edit. Use either a two-way r check out replica and sync the changes to the SDE
