I have lots of utility and facility data that is constantly being added to using Collector. Oftentimes I take photos added as attachments to the features I collect. I will then export the feature layer to a FGDB and use it to update our master FGDB. Oftentimes I need to make edits on the features in ArcGIS Desktop and then republish the layer in AGOL.
I understand that it is possible to export the images from ArcGIS Online, but is it possible to keep those images linked to the point so that way when I republish the layer onto AGOL the attachment stays with the feature?
Should I just download the images and put them on a file in our server and hyperlink to them in the attribute table? Seems like a lot of work that way, but that's all I can think of to do at this point.
