So Collector will be further improved and include a login for authenticating against ArcGIS Online/Portal. These are good news.

I need to know whether Esri is going to continue supporting opening the Collector through an URL(e.g. arcgis-collect://www.arcgis.com/sharing/rest/content/items/f85ea11bd55d453b843ea2f66ad1ef94/data) as happens today. If that is the case will Esri support passing a token within the URL? Example:

Because I have a front page that displays a list of web apps each referencing Collector using a different web map id. Problem is that the page already authenticates against ArcGIS Online to get the appropriate web maps so when users open the Collector shouldn't be asked for the credentials. How will this work in the new version? Since it contains the login I need to pass the token within the URL so that you can retrieve it and check that I have already a valid token.
