    Allow for batch export of ArcGIS Explorer notes to feature class rather than layer packages. 

    Currently we can only export ArcGIS Explorer notes via "Share" to a layer package.  I am having users make notes on the map to denote changes to zoning, which then I will bring into ArcMap, and make the necessary changes to the target database.  Our city uses a non-standard coordinate system, so I have to apply the Project tool to this data - but  I can't bring the layer packages directly into Model Builder- instead we have to manually export the data (first turining on the field for the heading, which is for some reason automatically UNchecked!) and then reproject the data.  This is very cumbersome when dealing with 100s of records.

    New Geodatabase Tool in Folders in ArcGIS Pro.  Currently, I need to go and use the Databases Folder in Project to launch the Create new Geodatabase GP tool.  I want to have the same capability when in the Projects Folder. Its sensible to create a new geodatabase when I am already inside the Folders section of the Project Pane

    The Attribute Assistant is a powerful extension that provides predefined calcs to be run on tables. Expressions are defined using VB. It would be useful if Python was supported as a scripting language here as it is in just about every other function in the ESRI product line.

    When using Attribute Assistant can we be notified what parcel that changes are being done to. Meaning to flask or high lite the one that the changes are occurring too.  We are running into an issue of not knowing what order the updates are being done.

    Please bring back the hot key 'N' that enabled a user to select a node in a map topology.  This went away at version 10.  We use these hot keys regularly when editing and the process is a bit more complicated now.

    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.

    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.

    Parcel Explorer seems to lack some potential functionality. It would be great if it was possible to display your parcels continuously (Like Windows File Explorer), so that you could select parcels from it at will...perhaps additional right-click operations could be introduced (zoom to, open, delete, etc) and if you create a "<New Parcel>" without naming it in Parcel Details for some reason (mass construction), you can come back to Explorer, highlight the parcel and rename it in Details.

    However, when you do, the explorer "sticks" or highlights the last named parcel and requires you to scoll 12 feet back to the top of the list just to select another unnamed parcel....this could be a great dashboard tool with lots of possibility. Also, the Plan directory should have remain open. ArcGIS is already a carpal nightmare, can you leave the Plan Directory open so you can access the functionality without having to re-click the Parcel Editor toolbar ever time you need it?

    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

    DDP Mapbook should list all available pages in its dropdown list; and/or show an index overview map to select pages needed for printing or exporting.  A better approach would be to include a dockable (non-modal) window listing available pages, with thumbnails (optional), scale and rotation info, etc., for selecting multiple pages to print or export.

    For a bonus, allow for viewing muliple pages at a time!!!!

    I would like to be able to control the identify tolerance on at least some of the AGOL application templates.  When I create a map in AGOL and then share it through an application template sometimes the identify tolerance is too small and it can be hard to select points on a smart phone or other small screens.  If I could adjust the identify tolerance I could correct this issue and be able to use the AGOL application instead of downloading it and running it on my own server.

    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.

    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.

    For local governments that are responsible for maintaining cemeteries, develop a feature class in the LGIM to include this.  It would be a polygon feature class showing the boundaries of the individual cemetery plots and associated attribute data.  Attribute data could include: section/block/lot/plot unique ID, owner details, deceased details, next of kin details, fee/payment details, funeral home details, dates for purchase and interment, plot type, etc.  This could be developed in a similar fashion to the parcel data sets in LGIM.

    Please create Bus/Transit line as well as related stops and timetables to the LGIM. Currently Transit routes are very hard to create, maintain and publish in the ArcGIS Solution and the entire industry would benefit if you have some of your local govt experts build solutions around the information model. Today there are very few solutions in creating, maintaining transit lines in the ArcGIS solution as Cartographic representations do not perform the large and small scale needs of transit publication to its customers. 

    Additionally provide the ability to export and import Google transit information (GTFS) as well.

    I was looking through the site and I discovered that there is a lot of for utilities, streets, parcels and addresses but nothing specifically for cemeteries.  I think it would be great to at least see what others were doing and see what sort of issues others have run into.  I'm going to do a post in the forums about this as well to see if I can get any feedback templates or other resources would also be quite helpful.

    Working for a small municipality we only had one very old map of the local cemetery so I decided to try and create a new one using GIS.  I created a polygon layer, drawing each cemetery plot, populating the attribute table with all of the information we had on file. I created a field that was either populated with "occupied", "reserved" or "available" for colour display purposes.  The only thing I find time consuming now is in order for the labels on each occupied plot to display nicely (Name of person(s) buried) I had turned all of them into annotation and edited them that way, now everytime there is a new burial I must go into the attribute table and edit the plot information and then add a new annotation for that plot.  Maybe there is an easier way to do all of this??

    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.
