Use Code Enforcement Operations

The Code Enforcement Operations solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you review potential code violations, inspect code violations in the field, and monitor the resolution of code violations in a community.

In this topic, you’ll learn how to use the solution by assuming the role of a user and performing the workflows below.

Collect code violations

You will start by assuming the role of a code enforcement officer responsible for verifying a potential code violation. You are asked to use Code Violation to visit a potential code violation in the field and verify the details.

  1. Download ArcGIS Collector to your device.
  2. Open the application on your device, and sign in to your ArcGIS Online organization.
  3. Choose the Code Violation map.
  4. Using the ArcGIS Collector form, fill in the following details:

Monitor code violation status

Now you will assume the role of a planning or zoning administrator responsible for reviewing current open and closed violations. You are asked to use Code Violation Dashboard to monitor code violations.
