What's new?

Workforce for ArcGIS has regular updates for the web and mobile apps. The web app is currently version 17.0.1, released in October 2017. The Android and iOS mobile apps are also currently version 17.0.1, released in December 2017.

Project owners

Version 17.0.1 of the web app was released in October 2017 and includes the following enhancements and fixes:

  • Pass additional information to Collector for ArcGIS and Survey123 for ArcGIS

    When enabled by project owners, mobile workers can pass additional information to Collector and Survey123. While configuring the project, the project owner can specify that the ID and Location text be passed when opening Collector or Survey123.

  • Identify project members who are no longer members of an organization

    Members of a project who are no longer part of an organization are indicated by an error icon Invalid user error. This helps you avoid assigning work to mobile workers that won't complete it and keep your project clean.

  • Use Managed App Configuration with ArcGIS Enterprise

    Streamline your mobile app deployment by pushing the URL of your ArcGIS Enterprise portal through your mobile device management (MDM). When your users open the mobile app, they'll see the OAuth screen from your portal.

Dispatchers

Version 17.0.1 of the web app was released in October 2017 and includes the following enhancements and fixes:

  • See the date of an assignment's current status

    Dispatchers now see the date an assignment was updated to its current status instead of the assignment's creation date. This date identifies assignments that aren't progressing through your workflow as you'd expect.

  • View attachments added by mobile workers

    Mobile workers can now attach photos and videos to their assignments while they are working in the field. Some organizations use this to provide proof of work completion, while others use it to document issues noticed in the field that require additional work. Dispatchers can view these attachments to verify the work, create assignments for follow-up work, or otherwise act on the added information.

Mobile workers

Version 17.0.1 of the mobile apps for Android and iOS were released in December 2017 and include the following enhancements and fixes:

  • Attach photos and videos to assignments

    Mobile workers can now attach photos and videos to provide additional information about the work done. Some organizations use this to provide proof of work completion, while others use it to document issues noticed in the field that require additional work. View an assignment's details in the mobile app to attach a photo or video.

  • Pass additional information to Collector for ArcGIS and Survey123 for ArcGIS

    When enabled by project owners, mobile workers can pass additional information to Collector and Survey123. When launching Collector or Survey123, a new collection or survey, respectively, is started and includes information from the assignment.

    Note:

    Using the additional parameters with Collector for ArcGIS requires Collector for ArcGIS 17.0.3 or later.

  • Sorting removes Critical grouping

    When you sort your assignments, all assignments are now sorted by the specified criteria. Critical assignments are no longer kept in their own section.
