    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.

    Please include an on/off visibility checkbox in the Layer Properties Symbology tab which will allow you to control which values in a single layer are drawn.  This is currently only possible with multiple occurences of the same feature class added to the TOC, which quickly becomes overwhelming.  Thank you!

    When a long alias for a field is used, Collector and ArcGIS app on the iPhone and Android cut off the text and don't allow for scrolling so you can see the rest of the field alias.

    We are trying to use Collector to do an ADA inventory.  The questions are long and we can't see the entire question.

    Collector is working great for this project but this is so dissapointing.

    We do emergency response GIS here at my county government office.  In the case of no internet, ArcGIS Pro will not work.  Please consider implementing some sort of mechanism into your software that allows usage during outages.

    I am really impressed with the amount of functionality added in models and python for database administration in 10.1. One area which I think could still be improved is with the ReconcileVersions_management tool. If I were going to use the example for batch reconcile and post found here. I still have no way of trapping if conflicts were found. I think many of us would want to know within the script if a conflict was found and kick off another function or process. For example;

    If conflicts == true:
        send email and attach log file(Conflicts Exist!!!)
        compress database
        resume connections to database
        run analyze
    else:
        send email that no conflicts found(Reconcile Post Successful)
        compress database
        recreate versions
        resume connections to database
        run analyze
        start ArcGIS Server/Services

    Currently there is no way out of the box to return a variable to know whether conflicts exist. We can tell the tool to abort if conflicts but once the tool has run how do we know or catch if conflicts existed? If there could be a variable returned to let us know, we could parse out the logic in our scripts to account for conflicts. For example, I would not recreate the versions if conflicts were detected because I would not delete those versions until the conflicts were resolved.

    The only logic I have been able to come up with currently is to iterate through the versions after the ReconcileVersions_management tool has run, if the count of the list is 1, then I can only assume that this is the default version. If more than 1 version exist I can assume there was a conflict but how do I really know unless the tool can return a boolean variable letting me know. Below is the logic;

    versionList = arcpy.ListVersions(InputDBConn)
    arcpy.ReconcileVersions_management(InputDBConn, "ALL_VERSIONS", "sde.DEFAULT", versionList, "LOCK_ACQUIRED", "ABORT_CONFLICTS", "BY_OBJECT", "FAVOR_TARGET_VERSION", "POST", "DELETE_VERSION")
    print "after reconcile"
    versionList = arcpy.ListVersions(InputDBConn)
    print versionList
    if versionList == 1:
        print "Reconcile and Post Successful"
    else:
        print "More than 1 version found conflicts might exist?"

    So is it possible to return some type of variable so we can flag if conflicts existed or not after the ReconcileVersions_management tool has run please?

    Nice to have the download link for Code Attachment a bit more noticeable.  Perhaps the download link could be bold to make it stand out more.  It seems like it takes a second or two to notice the download link.  I see the Code Attachment fine, but the Download link kinda blends into the page.  Might be helpful for color blind people.

    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.

    It would be nice if the PDF I export from ArcMap supported turning on/off the layers like I can in ArcMap.  I know AutoCAD 3D Maps has this feature and it is very nice.  Instead of having to post a pdf map 3 different ways I could just post the 1 map and the user could turn on or off the layers they want.

    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".

    Having looked at the Compare template on ArcGIS Online a few enhancements came to mind...
    • An option to select different maps for the different views
    • A search location / address facility is, I think essential
    • The ability to turn off layers (seems to be called content elsewhere)
    • Print capability, measure tools etc
    • Also the title bar is very deep, which isn’t good when the purpose of a map is the map so make this shallower. It would also provide room for other tools / options.
    These would make something that has potential but limited use be far more dynamic and usable for different sectors. There's an example that shows it's not impossible at http://www.esri.com/software/landsat-imagery/viewer 

    :-)

    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.

    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!!!!

    During the process of cleaning a cadastral dataset, our process is to use topology to insure Parcel lines and parcel polygons overlap. The original parcel development is often a mult vertices line for many of the curves that were developed. It would be nice to have a generalize or smooth tool in topology so an editor could convert the already created  line/polygon  to 2 point line  for  both the parcel line and parcel polygon. They could then take the line and use  "their choice' of "modify edge" tools to match it up to the COGO of the original document.

    In the 9.3.1 ArcGIS environment there was an customization developed by the Water/Wastewater Group that was called Attribute Assistant.   This customization was extremely helpful in making the editing experience more painless.  For example, one could transfer attributes from one feature to another just based where you placed the feature in relation to other features.  If you placed an address point within a taxlot during an edit session, the field in the address point that has the taxlot id would fill in with the taxlot id found in the taxlot that the point was placed.  There was also other functionalities that came with this customization that made the editing experience much more tolerable.  It is not apparent to me whether this customization is currently usable in ArcGIS 10 environment but it sure would be nice.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Our county uses a geography-based parcel numbering system.  Within the parcel fabric, it'd be nice to have the "snake" tool work for this type of number in addition to the simple sequential numbering.
    See image below for more detail on our numbering system.

    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.
