    I would like to save my Toolbar Layout and Settings for Arc Map.  This would allow me to restore my toolbar and Arc Map settings when I need to install a newer version of Arc Map.

    Each time a new version is released, I have to rely of screen capture photos to update my toolbar layout and settings for Arc Map.

    If we had the option to save Arc Map Toolbar Layout and Settings, then I could recall or restore these settings after a new install.  This option could also be used to restore different settings and layout for a different user or purpose.

    Consider adding support for URL search or URL query parameters to the Finder web application template.  The Finder web app allows one to configure searching for features from one or more ArcGIS map services.  URL search parameters would allow a user to pass the attribute for a feature in a URL.  The web app would then pan and zoom to the feature and select and highlight the feature in the map.  No ArcGIS Online web apps currently support or provide this type of functionality.  The ability to pass search or query parameters in a URL would provide for some Enterprise level integration between different business systems in an organization.  I have a current business need in our organization to have a web app zoom to and open at a specific feature.  I believe adding support for URL search or query parameters would provide complementary functionality to the Finder web app.

    MyGovernmentServices template right now lacks the ability to display additional links related to the information that is not part of the layers itself in the template.  This feature is essential to provide users a way to find additional information that they might be looking for.

    Please add a menu item with a title such as 'More Info' that can be shown or hidden using configuration and has the ability to list the links defined in the configuration.

    Thanks

    I want to have the option to consume INSPIRE services (VIEW, DISCOVERY, DIRECT ACCESS)  in ArcGIS for Desktop Basic and to share my GIS resources as INSPIRE services (VIEW, DISCOVERY, DIRECT ACCESS) using ArcGIS for Server Standard. This is valid feature to all esri european users. Consider implementing this.

    The plans table has a relationship with the parcels table within the parcel fabric. Although plans are logically represented as rows in a table, they are later characterized by the parcel(s) related to them.

    plans may be related to one or more parcels

    For example, when I open the plan directory and use the list by current map extent I see a list of all plans that have parcels within the map extent.

    the plan directory and current map extent

    One enhancement that would streamline data entry, particularly for organizations concerned with the legal start and end date attributes, is the transfer of the legal date field on the plan to each parcel that is subsequently attached to the plan. When a new parcel is created in the plan the legal start date will be populated based on the attribute in the plan directory. Another worfklow might include parcel editor tools such as construct from parent. In this case, if the parcel is in a plan with a legal date attribute that is already populated, executing a construct from parent operation would give the editor the option to mark parent parcels as historic using the legal date attribute as the legal end date.

    This would greatly reduce human and typographical errors and time in populating this attribute for each parcel or a selected set of parcels.

    The existing edit template creates a legend in the upper 1/5 of the left side of the browser window, regardless of how many feature layers (point, poly, line).  When a user is adding from a symbol set of 8 or more symbols and looking at the map for understanding, it would be helpful to see more of the legend features (ideally the whole left column on the window would be available.  The current template does not allow one to stretch it down to make more visible the other symbols.  Current template is just blank below the small legend window.

    Perhaps this may be included in the update that adds Disconnected Editing but I'd really like to use the Collector interface but with the ability to postprocess some of my data.  As of now there isn't a good way to collect high accuracy GPS using Collector because I am limited to the mobile device's GPS which is generally in the 5-10 meter range, too high for what I do.

    It is frustrating to me when I hear ESRI staff tell me "web application customization is no longer sustainable, you need to move towards web application CONFIGURATION products like AGOL" and then ESRI provides substandard application templates to choose from in ArcGISOnline.

    A large majority of the templates available to choose from only make use of one or two widgets, for example, search and legend... when in fact any normally used, high performance web application will at the very least want to have the following widgets available:

    - Search (both address and feature)
    - Legend
    - Layer Toggle
    - Printing
    - Measuring
    - Directions
    - Basemaps
    - Identify

    The basic viewer gets close but there are changes that should be made to that as well (full screen, give it the look and feel of the other Local Government applications).

    The rest of the templates are bare bones and need to be customized via code download and self hosting (which seems to defeat the purpose of the whole customization vs configuration push). At that point why not just use the Javascript API samples?

    A true configuration model would be to give the user options for everything and let them decide which widgets to enable/disable.

    In a multi-user SDE environment, some feature classes need to participate within a topology. However, we need the ability to deny edit privledges to selected feature classes within a feature dataset. An example:

    • Tax district boundaries are maintained by the Assessor's office.
    • Election precinct boundaries are maintained by the Elections office.
    • Both tax districts and precincts share topological relationships.
    • Elections staff don't want Assessor's staff fiddling with their boundaries accidentally.
    • Assessor's staff don't want Elections staff fiddling with parcels accidentally.
    Currently, the only option in SDE is to grant users from both offices full edit permissions to the entire feature dataset.
    We need the option to disallow edit privledges to individual feature classes within a feature dataset.

    My idea is to have aan ArcMap feature in which an output layer (in memory) is auto-saved or exported after a long process is completed.  For example, I recently ran an O-D Cost Matrix solve in Network Analyst, overnight.  It was a big one, succesfully producing 28+ million O-D combinations!  However, upon returning in the morning and clicking "save" in ArcMap the computer immediately froze and would not recover.  Since the line layer was stored "in memory" it was lost.

    Since this problem could also happen to anyone whose organization automatically logs-off or shutdowns or installs updates when long processes are enabled, an auto-export or auto-save of such analysis outputs would be a welcome addition to improve process flow.

    We need a way to support replication (2 way) or a versioning scenario where we want to load data weekly to ArcGIS Online that syncs with a service already there, so changes done in the field, can be synced with updates that are newly uploaded, where we don't lose the updates, by overwriting the service, or having to create multiple copies of the service, or have to extract the file out as a shapefile, then query on what has changed in the extraction and then have to query the new layer and look for those records, then drop those records (since they have been updated in the field), and then do an append/merge on the newly created combination of what is extracted from CAMA, and what is extracted from ArcGIS Online before reloading the service as an overwrite to the existing service.

    If you supported GDB as an output or better yet, link the GDB directly to our internal system, some way, then we could capture the photos taken in the field as well to our underlying enterprise GIS system.

    It would sure be handy if I could add more than one record to the TaxParcelCondo table at a time.  I have a sixty unit condo that I have to enter one unit at a time into the condo table.

    It would be nice if there were a tool like the Name Parcels tool - showing a beginning unit number and a prefix for the ParcelID and then a total number of units to be added.  I could add floor designations later and in groups.

    While editing parcels I often need to merge two parcels into one multi-part parcel to maintain a single record in either tax parcels or subdivisions common areas etc.  Currently the merge task automatically marks the two (or more) individual parcels as historic.  I have no need for them to be in the historic parcels, as they are just building blocks of the end product.  I then have to go select them in the historic parcels subtype (not always an easy task when there are many overlapping historic parcels) and delete them.

    It would be nice if there were a check box on the merge dialog that allowed me to not mark the original parcels as historic and delete them.

    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 would like to be able to select 2 different features (geometry type and feature class does not matter) this tool would have two columns (1 for each feature selected).  In these columns it would list out the attribute names and the value in them for the selected features.  If you are comparing different feature classes some or none of the field names may match, but if the fields do match the tool would compare the values in them and easily identify if the values were the same.  It could highlight the attribute names to show you where they are not equal.  

    So for example if you selected 2 road lines, and every attribute on them were identical except the Name, this tool would highlight Name to let you easily identify they are different rather than you flipping back and forth between the two features to find the difference.

    In addition to that it would be nice to be able to transfer the value to update and make them the same. 

    So in the sample with the 2 roads.  Lets say that the roads should have the same name, then there would be a button that would allow you to transfer the correct name to the other one.  If there were multiple attributes that were not equal, you could pick and choose which ones to transfer.

    There needs to be a way to easily handle large amounts of data. We are collecting transportation assets around the state. With 6 pictures being required for each asset, we quickly got up to over 18000 pictures with only 300 assets for the pilot and we are looking at potentially collection 1000s of asset. The work around is that we are running two seperate geodatabases, one for attachments and one for asset attributes with an ID number that relates the two databases.

    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.

    We have the need to inventory open space / natural areas around our county. These are NOT developed parks, rather they are undeveloped which is the point of their existence. In order to categorize these for our natural resource / environmental community we would like to see ESRI add a code to the Public Attractions and Landmark Structures FCode domain called "Open Space / Natural Area." In the meantime we will add these manually to our local domain.

    The Local Government Information Model has no decent category for Senior Living Facility. These are NOT nursing homes or long term care facilities, they are basically apartments for seniors aged 65 and over. This category is used by our 911 responders in case an evacuation is needed. Senior Living Facilities would need to be handled differently than the general population in an evacuation. We would like to see ESRI officially add a code to the Health and Medical FCode domain called "Senior Living Facility" to accommodate these uses. In the meantime we will add these manually to our local domain.

    Thank you ESRI for creating Geodatabase Attachments in v10!  Its great to easily connect and access pictures, videos and .pdf construction drawings and much more at their geographic locations! 

    However, in its current format adding file attachments to features is only functional for a very small organization, it is viable for hundreds not thousands of attachments.  Many thrid party companies are popping up to fill this much needed niche.  I would appreciate it if ESRI would consider making some improvements to enable larger organizations to utilize adding file attachments as a means to spatially organizing files and documents.  
     
    This is a follow up on this forum discussion:  http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/51099-Attaching-files-to-features-Linking-to-multiple-documents
     
    Proposed Geodatabase Attachment enhancements: 

    1) Why relocate/re-save the file attachment in a geodatabase?

    We should be able to click on a feature and open an attached document (.wmv, .jpeg, Word, .pdf, excel, etc.) without having to relocate and save the file to a Geodatabase.  Why create a copy of a document and save it in a geodatabase where accessibility is restricted to ArcGIS? 

    In its current design, each time an attachment is added to a feature a copy of the file attachment is saved in a geodatabase.  This means that if 50 utility features were all constructed with the same construction plans, the geodatabase must contain 50 copies of the same document.  Why do we need to create/add a new copy of a document for each feature it is attached to?
     
    Typically an organization already has a filing system in place, in some cases files are stored on a secure server.  It is important to attach a document to a feature class from its current server folder location.  This prevents maintaining data at multiple locations (1) geodatabase and (2) original secure location.    This would allow a “living” document to be updated and accessed by non-GIS users.  Currently, to update a document you are required to delete and re-add the document for each feature connected to the newly revised attachment.
     
    2) Query which features are attached to which file attachment.

    Currently if a document needs to be updated there is no way to know how many features are attached to copies of the document in the geodatabase or how many copies the geodatabase contains. Create an interface which allows the user to view which features are attached to which document. 

    3) After hours of attaching documents you can delete them all in one click.

    The attachment table/relationship is very easy to create, just a right click in ArcCatalog and tada! However, they are also very easy to delete, just a right click in ArcCatalog and tada, potentially thousands (or tens or thousands) of attachments are gone without so much as a warning popping up…  Perhaps we could at least have an ArcCatalog warning pop up to make sure that the user is certain they want to delete the attachment relationship?
