Collector for ArcGIS Clear Survey Map each day

We are trying to figure out the best method to have a Collector survey map have NO PRIOR SURVEY FEATURES show in the Collector map, meaning a fresh map each day. This is really important!


I've created an offline map that is clear of features by having filters set on the feature layers ('CreationDate in the last 8 hours') and the web map does not show any features that is used for creating an offline area.


Yesterday a coworker collected features and synced them to AGOL. Since the features don't disappear after syncing our workflow has been to delete the map area on the iPad and then download the same original offline area. Today my coworker relayed that he deleted the map area and then downloaded the offline area only to still see his survey features from yesterday in the map. So as a workaround he deleted all the survey features from yesterday to have a clear map for today's aerial survey. We are downloading the data from AGOL each day so we do have a backup, but obviously we don't want to do this.


Please tell us how we do we get a fresh/clear survey map each day and what is the best workflow?
