Hosted feature service created in ArcMap not syncing

Hello! I have created a feature service for AGOL from ArcMap and am trying to determine the best workflow for updating this data and pushing it back to AGOL. For some reason, the feature services that I am creating (in both ArcMap and directly on AGOL) are not allowing me to save them as a local copy for editing. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

Also, does anyone have any input on the best workflow for this? I understand that ESRI is working to enhance these capabilities now.

I envision something like this:

  • Publish a feature service directly from a GDB in ArcMap

  • Allow edits via AGOL

  • Remove editing capabilities for AGOL users

  • Update the feature service with new features in ArcMap by saving a local copy and syncing back with AGOL

  • Enable editing capabilities for AGOL users

  • Repeat as necessary

Thanks everyone!
