Can I set up a map that will honor drop downs?
Yes domains set up on your feature classes are carried through to collector
So, would the service created from the feature class support the domains?
Yes it should do, server 10.0 onwards.
I use domains from a sql database in an editing appliation built with the flex api. Have a look at the REST API help here:
One more quick question:
I watched the demo for Damage Assessment App. In the video it shows adding a photo. Is the photo managed using attachment manager?
As far as I am aware yes, but I thought I had read somewhere that Esri had changed the way attachments are stored within AGOL so that they are stored outside the feature class so you do not get charged for hosting large file size feature classes that are holding images. But I cannot seem to find that info anywhere, maybe someone from Esri can ellaborate.
some info on setting up the hosted feature service for attachments can be found here:
