    Can we please have the ability to export symbology with a feature class / Layer when exporting it to a geodatabase. The process of reassigning symbology can be ultra time consuming.

    I had to export feature classes from an SDE to a file geodatabase so that i could publish the features as a service (I will submit one on this as well). I had to go in and reassign symbology for each layer after the export. In some cases I was not able to find the exact symbology so I had to create new. It would be a great feature to just let me/us export it with the data.

    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.

    I would like the ability to specify a map scale for printTemplate outputs in the ArcGIS Javascript API.  I am primarily using the new Finder app deployed on my web server which references an AGOL webmap.  The ability to specify a map scale exists within the default print widget in the Flex API and I would like to see this functionality extended to the Javascript API.

    Use Case:  Organization has published multiple web services and has created many web maps on AGOL referencing them.  Organization upgrades to new ArcGIS Server infrastructure and new web domain.  

    Issue Statement:  When new infrastructure is implemented, organization has to re-create web maps referencing new domain endpoints.  This would include recreating such things as map order, popup configuuration, etc.  It would be benficial to generate a configuration file or re-resource existing definintions in a web map without starting over from scratch.

    It is critical to have a configurable print task added to the parcel viewer application in which you could possibly have a couple of layouts to choose from that could include some parcel details (name, address, units, etc).  Or you may just have one layout where the map is square and the details are on the side, either way would be very, very handy. It comes with some of the other web applications. Is there a reason to leave it off of this one?

    Currently the only solution is to configure it on your server in which case you would be responsible for hosting. I am looking for an "out of the box," no server needed solution for smaller organizations that don't have the resources to host a Land Records GIS website.

    In other words if they have to host it themselves (requiring additional hardware/software and maintenance) then what's the point of paying for a subscription to ArcGIS Online? What good is information you find on the web if you can't print it?

    A user searches for a feature based on a configurable, predetermined set of attributes in the Parcel Viewer. After choosing a feature from the results the map will zoom to the feature and [should] highlight it.  

    Then, the user goes to print a map (because that's what people do with maps) of the feature and the user "hopes" to have the attributes (because that's what separates us from CAD) and the feature highlighted on the printed map.

    So please add functionality to the Parcel Viewer web app on AGOL to highlight the selected feature AND list its attributes on the printed map.

    Thank you.

    Help us process our LiDAR!  Many local governments are acquiring very expensive LiDAR data without having the expertise and resources to fully capture its potential value to their customers. 

    Would ESRI have any interest in launching a pilot “Community City Engine” or “Community 3-D Basemap” initiative, along the lines of the Community Mapping project

    I envision neighboring municipalities making their LiDAR data available to ESRI in exchange for some assistance processing this often under-used (and EXPENSIVE!) data into regional 3-D surfaces and even extracted vector layers. 

    Once workflows are developed to standardize the inputs and outputs, I can imagine many government entities lining up to contribute and update such a "basemap".

    I'd be great to have arcpy control over a magnifier window.  

    mg = arcpy.mapping.listMagnifierWindows()[0]
    # select a feature here
    mg.zoomToSelected()
    mg.refresh()

    The idea here is to have a map of my city showing what's happening, but if a high priority item came up it could automagically center/zoom to in the magnifier/viewer window.

    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.

    Why don't we allow the public user to join the private group created by an organization?

    I understand that user with public account does not have an authorization to join the organizational group unlike a subscription or developer account. In some case, the organization needs the channel to be accessed by an amount of specific users out there. ArcGIS Online is almost appropriate but the public users could not join the group created by organization. It seems does not make any sense when we have the invitation security system we have to approve the request before someone join the group.
     
     
    Why a public account instead of a developer one? 
     
    In many case, our target member are no longer developers but users. It looks strange that lots of member register as developer account just only to view the same map as the others. Moreover, to register an account, the public  is less complicated than the developer. 
     
     
    It would be a gerat channel for public users to access our maps more easily and quickly. Without a complex registration to deal with, in the case we need, our target public users could explore the maps conveniently. So why don't we allow a public user to join the private group authorized by Administrator?

    This functionality is already available with domains, but not with subtypes.  It's difficult to write a proper query when the information button provides textual description only while the def query presents coded value only.

    When recieving new surveys I often find mismatching data with surrounding parcels, particularly with curve data along ROW. In the case of curves, as many of us know, if the values do not match at a parcel boundary there is a visible gap which is undesirable. Since most of our data is still of very low accuracy it would be nice if there was a tool I could use to either inherit the value of an adjacent line/curve or assign a new value to any adjacent parcel lines/curves. This could be done when creating a new parcel, or when reopening an older parcel (whichever would lend to better data) to match curve data along any parcel boundary. This tool would also likely have to create breaklines or merge multiple lines to create a perfect match since the number of lines along a curve will vary from parcel to parcel or among surveys.

    Will the the ArcGIS GeoEvent Processor for Server be included in the ELA?  I think it should.  As a small government entity  we would be able to leverage sensors that were included in pieces of equipment at the moment of purchase.  We have all those sensors and no mean to gather and use the information from them.

    I would like to see a consistent approach to data models - specifically the Local Government Data Model and the Community Maps Data Model. Shouldn't they follow the same schema logic? We want to follow these, but in some respects, they seem mutually exclusive. Couldn't they be merged?

    I am also interested in the Building Interior Spaces Data Model but have found that it does not conform to the FGDC Addressing Standard. Will this be changed in the near future?

    I'd like to see a tool available in the Address Data Management template for the Local Government Information Model to create a Master Street Address Guide .  A Master Street Address Guide lists all streets and address ranges by ESN and Mapzone or Municipality for Even and Odd sides of the street.  911 dispatch uses them to verify that the correct emergency services are sent to the proper address.  It's a little more detailed than the Master Street Name table in the LGIM.  All the required infomation should be the LGIM, it's just a matter of getting it properly assimilated.  We have an old, old AML for MSAG generation that uses coverages, but we've never been successful at moving it into a current programming format for GDB.  We've also experimented with 3rd party MSAG creators, but they usually lag behind current ArcGIS versions.  So how about it?  If you'dlike a copy of our ancient AML, let me know!

    User-added image

    When joining parcels to the parcel fabric, join links can be added manually or by using auto join.  When auto joining, I prefer to inspect each link to make sure the proper points have been linked.  I'm especially suspcious of point-to-linepoint links, and I alway verify that there is not a point in close proximity that should have been linked instead of a linepoint.  My inspection process is this:  Select each record created by auto join and use the zoom-to button to display the join link in the map window.
     
    Zoom-to is quite nice, but sometimes, the scale is much too large/small for me to recognize the linked points.  If this is the case, I must manually zoom in/out until I can identify which points are linked.  If there are several join links to inspect, I spend an inordinate amount time clicking buttons to zoom in and out or holding down the shortcut keys Z & C ( which reward me with an annoying ding each time I use them with the Join Parcel window open) and drawing extent rectangles with my mouse.
     
    To streamline this process, I propose that a "Pan To" button also be added to the Join Parcel Window.  A join link could be selected from the table, and the "Pan To" button would cause the map to pan to the join link and maintain the current scale set in the map.  It should work exactly like "Pan to Selected Features" in the ArcMap "Selection" menu, unless the current scale results in an extent that is of a size that cannot display both points participating in the join link.  In that instance, the default action of the button should be to zoom to the points participating in the join link.

    Provide simple geoprocessing tasks, such as a Buffer Task, in ArcGIS Online for Organizations.  Using an existing layer, enable users to create buffers of specified distances.
    Thanks,

    This would be a variation on the Mean Two Points tool    in the Parcel Editor Toolbar.  Mean Two Points calculates a mean coordinate pair 3 between points 1 and 2 and then moves both 1 and 2 to the mean coordinate.

    The new tool would eliminate the mean point calculation, and instead allow the user to choose whether to move point 1 to point 2, or point 2 to point 1.  It could use the same dialog box as the Mean Two Points tool, with additional check boxes beside Point 1: and Point 2: to indicate the preferred landing spot.

    It would be very helpful to have the ability to snap to features outside the Parcel Fabric while editing with Parcel Editor.
