    Since the latest major update of ArcGIS Online it's possible to use an Enterprise Login System. 

    My idea is that this is also available for the Virtual Campus environment. This is useful for students who use both sites. Now they have to register an Global Account for the Virtual Campus and use their student number and password to login in our ArcGIS Online Environment. It's easier to use only one account. 

    Of course, they could use the global account for the ArcGIS Online, but in this case I have to manage to many users. That is one of the main reasons that ESRI introduced the Enterprise Login.

    Currently AcGIS Online Organization administrators have to "Enable Esri Access" before an organization member can  use their login to
    1. contribute in GeoNet
    2. take any Esri Virtual Campus courses (even free ones that are available to all Public accounts).
    The administrator has to
    1. individually enable each user.
    2. Wait for new members *(with a preassigned username and password) to login in before Enable Esri Access is a selectable option.
    I have an idea that I think would facilitate use of GeoNet and Esri Virtual Campus courses by new org users and save administrators from tracking when organization members initially sign in so their Esri Access can be Enabled.
    Proposed Solution:
    Provide an option for the Organiztion administrator to Enable Esri Access for all organization members, including those who have not signed in yet.

    • simplify the work of the developpers and give them an easy way to manage ESRI java jar libraries dependencies.
    • use the standard way to distribute java jar libraries
    • diffuse your libraries as marketing tool (Maven central)

    I've starting programming web applications, but I've found my lack of understanding of the dubugging process really slows me down.  It would be nice if there was an online course that explains the dubugging process.

    It would be great if, once a user is done with a course, have them rate it online. This could be done at the training center at the end of class, and also for the online classes. These ratings, and only these ratings by actual students that have completed the course, could then be seen by prospective students in the course catalog at training.esri.com. Let's face it, we live in a world where we don't purchase much without reading reviews online first, so why should it be any different with training, especially in the current economic market where training and travel budgets have been cut back wildly in many organizations. This would give potential students the ability to get the opinions of their peers and use that to judge if a course is right for them. Reviews could be placed in a "Reviews" tab with the Overview/Software/Outline/Prereq tabs on the course page and of course could be "sanitized" by ESRI before they get posted, just as many online merchant systems do.

    It would be very helpful to make a short reference guide for people in the field. I understand the reference guide is available online, and that a pdf version has been made, but it is too long and detailed for a field guy to read through the whole thing just to take a point.
           There should be something short and simple like the following:

    Page One: Starting Up: This would describe how to open an existing map, making sure the GPS is Active, making sure the GPS is ready to take a point, setting editable layers, etc....
    Opening an existing project should be on top. If you want to go through all the "Create New.." or "Quick Projects", put them later on or in a different PDF, for the most part it just confuses field people.

    Page Two: Data Collection: Show as simply as possible how to collect data on already established shapefiles. Create Polygon, Polyline, and Point should be shown with their methods of doing each one. As in part one, don't  have the directions of how to create one or do modules etc etc. Keep it short and simple, act as though the user thinks ArcPad is a thing Noah built to make the animals comfy. If you want to show the bells and whistle, make them as suppliments.

    Page Three: Button Layout: Simply show a graphic of all of the buttons in ArcPad and their submenu's and what they are called. If it is not to confusing you could say what they do, maybe just the most used ones.

    I wouldn't be against a 4th page for troubleshooting or correcting errors. Or something really useful to field people

    What I am against is an overly complicated user guide that is complex and multiple pages long which Joe the Plummer refuses to read and calls me instead every time on a cell phone with no reception to walk him through how to just take a point.

    It should also be easy to find and in multiple places on the ESRI website, not buried in a place where you find it only after multiple different searches.

    Having finally changed all of our old MapBook projects to data driven pages, we have come across a problem when using the scale field to change the scale of a given page. The scale bar, which at 1:10,000 has divisions of 500m, suddenly looks ridiculous on the handful of pages that are 1:25,000. It was very disappointing to not be able to just go "File --> Export" for the whole set of maps. We still have to manually adjust the map elements for some pages.

    We can't be having divisions of "623m" or having the number text all on top of each other  - This is what happens if you set it to "Adjust division value" or "Adjust number of divisions" now.

    We need some sort of Data-Driven Element choice so that we can set Scale Bar (A) for scales of 1:10,000 and Scale Bar (B) for 1:25,000 etc.

    It would be nice if there was a free 1/2hr or 1hr training on how to use the maplex labeling tools. There are lots of options in maplex  and it would be nice to understand everything instead of experimenting or search through help everytime I have a map with many different labels.

    ArcGIS ModelBuilder in Version 10.1 still exports 9.3 python syntax. It's always necessary to convert the syntax with the ArcGIS help to actuell 10.0 or 10.1 syntax. Often you need the actual syntax for example because of the better performance of the 10.0 Map Algebra. The manual conversion takes a lot of time. Therefore I wrote an E-Mail to ESRI support to ask about updating plans. The answer was: "ESRI does not plan to update the export tool to 10.x syntax. It's a low level utility and still in 10.2 it will export 9.3 syntax."

    Python beginners would be vary happy to learn this way the optimal and actual 10.x syntax and even Python Programmers with more experience could integrate new script parts much more quickly, if the ModelBuilder exports the write 10.x syntax for a function, he uses the first time.

    Please update the ModelBuilder export function to actual Pyhon syntax (10.x).

    In ArcGIS 10.x, the metadata editor allows the user to change the value named, "Label," on the Fields Page, under "Entity and Attribute Information," for each listed atribute.  The metadata element called, Label, is actually the FIELD NAME, taken from the data.

    If the value is changed, "to fix the label," it breaks the link between the stored metadata and the feature class.  The metadata tags commited to the geodatabase [or XML file] do not have the same name as the actual field in the feature class.  As a result, the saved metadata for the attribute is lost and the metadata will not validate.

    To fix this...

         1.  Do NOT call the metadata element in the metadata editor, "Label."

         2.  Do NOT all ow teh user to edit the Attribute [Field] name!

    Current Condition (7/30/2014):
    http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/arcgis-for-home/common-questions

    If I purchase ArcGIS for Home Use, would I get software updates?  No. If you would like to get a new version of the software you will need to purchase another 12-month term license for that version.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Idea
    The home use program would be more valuable for me and for Esri if the 12 month subscription included software updates. 
    • Benefits to me:  easy access to the current version of the software for learning, improving skills, and performing personal projects during my paid 12-month subscription term
    • Benefits to Esri:
      1. 1. I'd be willing to pay more.  Let's say $125/yr instead of $100.
      2. 2. I'd focus more time and attention on the Esri GIS software and less time and attention to become familiar with competing offerings such as the Boundless technology stack when I let my Esri HUP subscription lapse until the next release of ArcGIS software.

    I like to read the ArcGIS documentation on my IPad mini where I do most of my reading these days.  It is clear, portable and can access most every thing I need.  The font used in the Esri docs is clear but rather small.  It would be helpful if the ArcGIS documentation could be downloaded in a format that a Kindle or Google Play reader can display such as a MS word doc.  Making the documentation available in this way would give the Esri users the flexibilty to resize or change the font type without needing to copy and paste from a browser.

    The local government data model can be a bit intimidating, yet there are times you'd like to make sure you follow it, but cannot find a category for a very basic governmental layer.  I realize that the purpose is to make our data plug-and-play with the apps and maps on AGOL and extend how folks are currently using their data.  The apps and maps quickly sell themselves at conferences and seminars, however what is not understood is what needs to be to one's data to make it work. 

    So I'm proposing quick how-to videos that basically say here's the pretty app, here's the basic layers that we used and here's where they fit into the government data model.

    Also, maybe a cross reference of basic layer names (or aliases) and where they fit into the LGDM. 
    For example: Parks --(found in)-- FacilitySite and FacilitySitePoint --(found in)-- ReferenceData feature dataset.
    This would take some of the guess-work out of the manual find function on the DataDictionary.htm file.

    The LGDM is still growing and is a good base; I think it could be better utilized with some more available resources.

    An in depth guide book, like the one for python add-ins, would be great for learning the power of python toolboxes. An explanation of best practices and debugging would be great.

    An example of dynamic tool validation would also be great. For example, a tool that pulled the current data driven page record into a value table or record set for user interaction would be very helpful.

    I'd like to see ESRI offer organizations who are entitled to "free" UC seats (but can't use them) the option of using them instead to attend other types of training. This could include the paid online courses, paid ESRI instructor-led training held locally, etc.
    The most equitable way might be to do it hour-for hour, so 1 seat at the UC (which is something like 45 hours of training) would entitle the user to 45 hours of some other kind of (usually paid) training for free.

    Why not to have the “Find and replace” tool in the “interface” of the attribute table?

    User-added image

    As we have much space in the “interface” of the attribute table, I’m wondering why other commands are not yet added to it. For example the “Find and replace” tool is one of the most important tools that better to be stuck there!

     

     

    Best

    I have tried to run ArcGIS online from an ArcGIS home user installation on Windows XP and Windows 7 on my Mac with Virtualbox 4.3.2 running Mac OS X 10.9.1.  It hasn't worked for the last three months.    At the ESRI DC Federal conference, I see one of your presenters is able to use ArcGIS online on Parallels on a Mac.   Not everyone can afford Parallels.  From a training perspective, you need to allow Mac users to use a free virtualization solution on their Mac, such as Virtualbox that only costs a Windows license.    People who are getting educated have very limited resources in terms of spending.     And the Mac has become a key platform.       When I try to run ArcGIS online link from ArcGIS desktop, the application just crashes with an error the moment I select ArcGIS online from any menu, or submenu of the layers.   It asks me to report the error to ESRI.
