I want to deploy teams using Collector for Windows on Surface Pro 2 tablets for field surveys. Instead of using a new, empty feature layer, my editable feature layer is one with existing point data and attributes. I have it set to only allow the field editor to toggle specific fields - they cannot delete existing or add new points. I am using subtypes and coded value domains. I am using Collector version 126.96.36.199.
Note: All three of the listed issues below affect Collector for Windows (using a Surface Pro 2 tablet), yet #3 also affects Collector for iOS (iPad Pro/iPhone 6s).
- Collector for Windows does not recognize certain layer symbology or specifications set forth in the web map and its hosted feature layers as it does successfully in iOS. For example, I want my editable feature layer to reflect no symbology when its points haven’t been changed from their initial status. In the Windows application, on both desktop and the Surface Pro 2 tablet, all points have a red dot symbol instead.
- Another issue in Collector for Windows is that the app is allowing pop-ups for features that I have purposely set to not show up.
- Collector, for both Windows and iOS, is recognizing some, but not all subtype default values. For example, when choosing either “Major” or “Destroyed”, the HABITABLE field should default to “0 - NO”. This works as designed in ArcMap, but not in Collector for either platform.
Issues 1 and 2 are more damning than #3. This must be a bug - has anyone else experienced this? Perhaps Esri could get their Windows team to take a look before we get slammed with hurricanes this season?
