    Please consider adding an End Point Arc Segment tool to the digitzing interface of parcel construction within the Parcel Fabric (Similar to Idea "Parcel Editor Fillet Tool").  I need the capability to digitze in a parcel that contains curves wthout knowing any survey bearings/distances or curve parameters.

    In Parcel Editor, it would be very helpful to be able to use field cacualtor in the Parcel Details window in order to change multiple line types and categories at once.

    Instead of using the merge courses context menu tool to apply a global "merge" to all courses in the selection, it would be nice to have an option for only merging the common lines among multiple parcels.Checkbox for common line selection

    In our particularly large parcel fabric dataset, we have accumulated a significant number of connection lines that are no longer necessary. We have found it virtually impossible to delete large numbers of connection lines since you must open each parcel individually, search for and delete each unwanted connection line one at a time from the lines tab in the Parcel Details window.

    I believe a Delete Connection Line tool (or some equivalent ability to allow users to delete connection lines) would be an instant hit not to mention a huge time saver.

    Currently, the merge points tool in Parcel Fabric allows users to select points and merge them based on a mean location.  This is helpful in some cases, but I am finding that I often have several points in a similar location and I know that one the points is the "correct" or best representation of that point.  It would be useful to be able to merge a collection of points to a known location in the system, rather than just generating a new mean.

    For instance, I have several curves on the same parcel that should share the same centerpoint.  One of them is actulally in the correct location, but the others are scattered around it (off by up to 5 feet).  Rather than joining them all to a mean point, I would like to select all the center points that are not in the correct location and move them to the point that is correct.

    It would be nice to symbolize flow direction for line features in Collector.  This is important in the field for water / sewer / stormwater, especially as we are trying to empower local public works crews iin the field with GIS.

    I would like the ability to at least view realtionship classes within an ArcGIS online map service. For example, we have water valves and the water valve inspections with their relationship class to the inspection data. I would like to expose the inspection data as a relationship class to the valve feature class which can be viewed by the end user during a water shutdown using either arcgis online in windows or through one of the many apps ESRI has put out. 'Green App, Explorer, Collector'. The only way I can see to do this currently is through either copying data over to the valve feature class or through a join. The issue with the join is it doesn't support one to many relationships, and the copying of data over is a process that we don't have the time or personel to support. It also doesn't give the end user the ability to see the historical maintenance of that particular valve.

    Would like more flexibility on what we can tweak in Portal for design purposes.  Currently we can add a background image, and the top box we can control where the title goes, add an image, a little html, but would like to be able to change text throughout with color size or change more features overall.  Something like Web App Builder for themes would be nice.

    The Community Multiscale Air Quality Modelling System (CMAQ) is a suite of air quality modelling programs used worldwide to produce air quality model simulations.  In many cases, the output from the model is in the format of a NetCDF3-based "IOAPI" file (hereafter, IOAPI file). An IOAPI file stores its spatial information in the file in a format that is not currently supported by Esri’s NetCDF suite of tools, i.e. the IOAPI file spatial information does not following CF convention.

    Because of this, ArcGIS as a visualization tool for Air Quality modelling results (such as mapping and animations) is not widely utilized and often abandoned in favour of open-source programs such as Verdi that can readily read-in model output files.  The downfall of these open source programs is, however, that the data mapping are not as professional or customizable as ArcGIS allows, and the user is quite limited in what they can do to explore the data and to produce information-rich maps.

    It would be excellent if Esri could expand the NetCDF tools to accept IOAPI file inputs.  I'm certain that if this was done, many more people in the Air Quality modelling community would leverage Esri software for their analysis and visualizations in lieu of the open source programs.  ArcGIS is very powerful and capable of so many different things that are very relevant to this community that Esri needs to take some steps that will help to facilitate the use of their software by the users in this community.

    We've found Collector to be especially useful for features that have already been created but need attribute updates by the field crews -- since they are the ones physically touching, installing, repairing, etc.  The features symbolized the work completed -- a hydrant was flushed yes or no -- a storm main was cleaned yes or no -- and the symbol showed whether the work took place on a particular feature -- a red hydrant (no) turns green when flushed and the field changed to (yes).  The field crews loved it, because they could see what they accomplished!

    However, beware!  What I have learned, if you change a symbolized field, all attribute fields will change to the feature defaults.

    I propose that this not occur!  Collector is a great tool for editing individual features.  Most field crews only want to see and have access to that feature class they will be working on in the field.  If this feature is part of a geometric network you do not want them creating this feature in the field.  In most cases, I turn off the ability to create when creating the service.

    With that in mind, maybe the application can know -- if a new feature is being created then populate default values; else don't change the existing values.

    I need an option to select multiple features at once, click edit on all of them at once, and give fields of all selected attributes the same value at one time.

    I work for the Philadelphia Streets Dept, and we are trying to figure out how to use Collector app for snow days, for marking the street blocks that have been plowed.  If someone could select 10 blocks of street segments at one time and update them all to "plowed" rather than having to select and edit them one at a time, we could probably use Collector for this.  Since right now we can't we are having to think about writing our own JS API app for this, which will not be an ideal solution.

    Modify the behaviour of the Parcel Remainder tool so that it will retain the polygon types for all polygons it "clips" during its operation.  Currently, all polygons that are clipped are assigned the polygon type set in the template instead of retaining their original polygon type.

    Plese modify the tool providing an option to retain the existing polygon types when performing the Parcel Remainder if they are differing polygon types.

    User-added image 
    This is especially important when performing a replat of an existing subdivision and one wishes to "clear out" everything underneath that is impacted by the replat of the subdivision.  

    Currently, one either unchecks the other polygon types, performs the parcel remainder and repeats by setting the template each time.

    One of the main workflows in our organization is implemented using an ArcSDE Spatial View.  For versions of ArcGIS Desktop prior to version 10.3, the spatial view was created using the ArcSDE Administration Command "sdetable -o create_view".  This command created the spatial view and registered the view with the ArcSDE Geodatabase.  With ArcGIS Desktop 10.3, the ArcSDE Administration commands are no longer included and Spatial Views are now supposed to be created with the ArcCatalog "Create View" menu command.  The Create View command will create a spatial view if the Storage Geometry is GEOMETRY. However, if the Storage Geometry of the ArcSDE feature class is SDEBINARY the Create View command will not create the Spatial View  (with 10.2.2 the command fails, with 10.3, only a database view is created).

    I recently migrated ALL of the feature classes in our SQL Server Enterprise Geodatabase from SDEBINARY to the GEOMETRY storage format.  After this change, the following impacts were observed:  1) a significant reduction inn ArcMap draw performance and feature class; 2) the size of the SQL Server database increased by a factor of 3; and 3) because of the increase in size of the database files, the SQL Server backup jobs now consumed all of the memory available on the server.  The draw performance of ArcMap was impacted so serverly that our ArcSDE Geodatabase became almost unsuable.  I then reloaded all feature classes using the SDEBINARY dbtune option so that all of the feature classes were converted back to SDEBINARY.

    The SDEBINARY seems to provide the fastest draw performance with ArcMap as the client.  Because of the fast draw performance provided by SDEBINARY, my idea is to have the SDEBINARY Geometry Storage format continued to be fully supported in the Esri Enterprise Geodatabase so that the new ArcCatalog "Create View" menu command will create a Spatial View if the feature class's geometry storage format is SDEBINARY.

    Why do I need to an outage to add a new layer to an existing feature dataset in ArcSDE? In our published read-only geodatabase, we average about 800 concurrent connections. This database is used 24/7 for internal and external services. If we have a new layer that needs to be added to a feature dataset I can not do this without either:
    1) Official Method: Killing all user sessions that may be locking the feature dataset, which is basically all 800 sessions.
    2) Backdoor Method: Deleting all records in the SDE.TABLE_LOCKS table referencing the feature dataset.
    The only practical method is unsupported.

    We need a way to do simple maintenance operations on a geodatabase without booting off all the users. The same applies to editing domains, adding columns, creating attribute and spatial indexes.
    If Oracle is not locking the objects then why should ESRI? These are read-only users. They should not care, and definately should not prevent, another layer being added to a feature dataset or a spatial index being built.

    Local Government needs a symbol set to represent recreation facilites. This would include baseball fields - soccer - football - tennis - basketball - skateboarding etc. There are good symbols availabel for hiking, biking,  etc. but these do not meet the need for mapping municipal park facilities.
    According to blogs I have read, this was started back in 2010 and apparently dropped just as it neared completion. This would be widely used if completed.

    Need the ability to add additional editors or maintainers to Portals / AGOL.  Currently, the person who submits the data/map/app is the only person who can update.  I wish to add additional editors/maintainers.  So, I want to add users similiar to what we can do with Groups.

    The new Parcel Namer Tool on the parcel editor toolbar is excellent for naming parcels in a parcel fabric dataset as described at: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/001t/001t000003z1000000.htm   The PNT looks similar to the 93 Snake PIN tool which was useful for naming not only parcels but also for entering polygons attributes that have incremental names or values.  There are many use cases for ArcEditor or ArcInfo users who need this type of functionality for naming polygons-- whether or not they are parcels participating in a parcel fabric or just geodatabase polygons.  It would be great to allow the Name Parcels Sequentially Using a Line tool (i.e.- the old Snake PIN tool) for non-parcel fabric dataset data.  Alternatively, it would be great to have the Snake PIN tool updated as an add-in for ArcGIS10.

    Our organization uses the Tax Parcel Editing Template for ArcGIS 10 to create parcels. The template is based on the parcel fabric data model. At ArcGIS 10 there is an option to select line templates using the traverse tool for creating a construction or a new parcel using the parcel editor to specify different types of lines while creating or editing them. We use the line templates based on the coded value domain "CartoLineType" with a couple of our own types added. I was curious if there was a way to synchronize the line types based on the parcel polygon template used (when creating a new or modifying an existing parcel, i.e. simultaneous conveyance, conveyance division, encumbrance, etc.). Currently when the editor selects a parcel polygon template (say simultaneous conveyance for instance) they then need to select the line template for simultaneous conveyance boundary. Ideally I would like to know if based on the parcel polygon template that the boundary or cartolinetype can be automatically selected when using the parcel editor traverse tool. This would also save time from having to unjoin the parcel and select the appropriate line template for each row in the traverse tool if an update to the lines and its dimensions needs to be made.

    The Web Appbuilder could benefit from a widget similar to the functionality found in the FINDER Configurable App. In the FINDER Configurable App, one is able to select a layer and a field, from one of the many layers in a map. For instance, I can configure the FINDER app to search on my Parcel layer, by Parcel Number, and the app will zoom into the found Parcel. It's beautiful. But once found, we CAN'T turn any of our layers on or off, or do much of anything else that are basic map functions.

    If this FINDER functionality were incorporated as a Widget into Web AppBuilder, this would solve almost 90% of our problems with using Web Maps and Apps on ArcGIS Online. We could search a desired layer (parcel search by parcel number), zoom to the found object, and then do other things, like turn layers on and off (a basic function of any map), draw, measure, print, etc. We could even use the esri Geocoder to get close to the area of interest if the user did not have a parcel number available, or one was not found in the data.

    Icing on the cake would be able to have the FINDER widget allow us to search on more than one layer, or have the ability to add multiple finder widgets to the app so the user can search by several different layers by the attributes we allow.

    Now if this happened, that would get us 98% of the way to nirvana!

    Thank you for your consideration
