    This is a plea to reinstate an up-to-date street dataset for the continental US.  I've heard enough about ArcGISOnline services.  There is a real need, requirement, business practice, whatever you want to call it, for batch geocoding using ArcGIS desktop tools, in a disconnected environment, with an up-to-date street dataset stored locally on a hard drive.  The processing of vital records, births, deaths, viral infections, disease incidence, and other administrative data all by address is typically protected information that cannot be shared or processed over an Internet connection. Some government interpretations of Hipaa rules simply do not allow raw data to be released or processed over an external network.  The $1000 lug for using NavTeq or Tomtom data may not be affordable to researchers or public agencies that rely on the processing of these data for planning and other administrative purposes,.

    When searching for a room, for example, in the Finder app, if the result is a room on a different floor than you are currently filtering, the filter should change to match the floor of the chosen room from the results.
    For example, I have a building with floors 4 & 5; if i search for a person and they are on floor 4, but my filter is set to floor 5, the app should change the filter for me to only show the rooms on the 4th floor.  

    This is an issue in both the Find, Edit, Filter and the Finder apps where the search and filter widgets are seperate.

    Having developed a similar application, there are a few things that can greatly enhance the Campus Place Finder to make it more scalable and have greater out of the box usability.

    - Find Place: Need to be able to search for buildings not just rooms.  On a large campus, just finding the building is hard enough.

    - Navigator: Change floor control box to a list box with a few values visibile and scrollbar when needed, but single select only.  It would also be nice to show the floor name but return the floor number in the code.

    - Navigator: Allow user to turn on all buildings of a given floor.  This is critical for multiple buildings that are part of a larger complex (such as building  M, MA, and N in the sample).

    - Edit Widget: Create an edit widget that would take into account the building and floor that features are added to.  This would work similar to the Attribute Assistant in the Campus Editing Template but be usable in a web format.

    - Rotate Map: If a building has a defined rotation, rotate the map to match the rotation.  This can be done in with data driven pages in ArcMap but would be very useful on the web as well.

    How about a mobile app template for the Campus Place Finder as well?

    Would like an option on Editor Tracking to exclude tracking changes when Field Calculator is used outside an Edit Session.

    I use Field Calculator in scheduled nightly Python Scripts to update values in the Parcel Feature Class.  With the current Editor Tracking, every record in the Parcel Feature Class will be updated with the username of the process running the nightly Python script, basically making Editor Tracking ineffective.

    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.

    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.

    It would be great if within AGOL, the site admin can set the default REST end point so the end user can add map layers to their web maps easier. Similar on how we add data to ArcMap would be great. Maybe with a thumbnail preview of the layer to make sure the correct layer is selected?

    Provide a solution for the lack of 'Chinese Postman' routing capabilities.  There needs to be a solution in Network Analyst that will allow you to create a route for house-to-house situations (i.e. mail delivery, meter reading).

    I would like to be able to set the transparency for polygon fill and stroke separately.

    At the moment, if I want a semi-opaque coloured fill with a solid black outline I need at least 2 copies of the same layer: 1 with the semi-opaque fill and another on top with the solid outlines.  If I want to include a representation of the features as they appear in the map I need 3 layers: 1 semi-opaque, 1 outlined and 1 with colours and outlines to match the appearance of the features in the map for use in the legend - see attached image.

    The ability to "force" the units displayed in ArcPad when using the measure tool or drawing a line to remain in a specific unit rather than rounding up ie rounding up to miles once the measurement exceeds 1000ft.

    I would like the ability to save as a button or in some other manner my selection of what layer and fields to search in when using the find tool.  I have users who perform finds on specific fields in specific layers so teh ability to quickly access this would be a real time saver in training and number of clicks.

    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.

    The traverse tool allows users to save out a txt file. The txt file can be imported into a fabric construction.

    Additionally, the Parcel Fabric Construction grid will now (10.2) let you import an xml but has always had the ability to export to xml.

    Say you want to bring the COGO from a construction back into a traverse so that you can tinker with it. Currently, there's no way to do that. 

    It would be nice if both tools shared the same format so that data could be exchanged in both directions.

    Cartograms are something that appear to have been missing from ArcGIS for quite sometime. Cartograms are more of a Cartographic type application. I consider though that some of the changes to the ArcGIS suite have been more focused on Cartographic aspects. So i would quite like to see this ability come to ArcGIS 10.

    In a typical production editing environment avoidance of heavy query and loading operations during peak hours is essential for optimal performance. With a large parcel fabric, utilizing the check the parcel fabric command on a production dataset during normal business hours is not the best approach. It would be helpful to be able to schedule the Check the Parcel Fabric command along with other maintenance jobs run on the enterprise geodatabase via a python script. If the Check the Parcel Fabric were formalized into a geoprocessing tool for example, this would facilitate periodic topological integrity checking. The report or log file could be reviewed at a later time and plans made to correct any geometry issues.Check the Parcel Fabric GP Tool

    I would like to see the Field Calculator include the Coded Domains associated with that field.

    I have a feature class that I am updating, currently there are 9 fields that need to be updated for each feature.  When a single feature is selected, it is easy to use the drop down boxes associated with the domains to populate the fields.  When there are multiple selections for a feature, then I have to use the Field Calulator.  I generally click on the header field name and then put the coded value in " " and then hit ok. 

    It would save much time if when:

    1. I opened Field Calculator, it would display the coded domains for selction.
    2. I right clicked on the field title, it would allow me to select a coded domain that would calculate down the entire selected column.

    When creating a single new parcel in a parcel fabric, the tools Planarize Lines, Breakline, and Create Parallel Offset are not available.  These can only be used when creating a new construction (for creating multiple parcels at one time) or using construct from parent.  It would be good to be able to use these tools in either environment.

    In a perfect world, you have a full set of boundary line calls to constuct a parcel and wouldn't need these tools.  But in the real world you don't always have that, and occasionally any one of these tools might help.

    Also, I've found the parcel fabric editing "user experience" to be inconsistent in some places, and this is a good example.  New Parcel and New Construction are very similar (with important distinctions) and having different tools available in each environment is a poor experience in my humble opinion.  According to esri support, at least a portion of this idea has already been denied as a feature enhancement request, so please promote! :)

    Modify the mean points functionality in the Parcel Fabric to allow the user to select a point to which all other points in the selection tolerance will be moved.  In this manner, one can define what is the point containing the correct location.

    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.
