Hi Scott, do you have an idea about the release date?
Well, it's been two years since the first suggestion. We saw this immediately upon using collector also two years ago. Come on ESRI. This is a no brainer where you are collecting geometric networks with utilities. Ours is stormdrains. and as someone posted above, a separate workflow has to be developed for Snapping routines to connect line features to point features
It really needs snapping. Big time.
Unfortunately without snapping mode the Organizations can actually choose another options, outside of ArcGIS ecossystem.
Please implement snapping for all feature types. Not having snapping is introducing more errors in our data collection projects, especially in our Sign and Pole Inventory where the workflow with Attribute Assistant depends on (near) identical geometries.
For the workflow mentioned above... if your thinking I can just do the "copy feature, different feature, same location functionality" in Collector... your wrong! Turns out, if you feature class participates in a Relationship class, that functionality is disabled in Collector. Eg... Our Sign feature class and Pole feature class each have a related table that holds "Log entries" for qualitative check ups of those physical features. So when collectors are adding new inventory (e.g. a new sign and new pole at the same location), we have a great deal of error with our workflow that must be corrected in the "back office" since field collectors can't achieve the same exact geometry when adding to different points in Collector.
If your reading this idea and vote for snapping, and you also have noticed and have been pained by the functionality I described above, please also vote for this idea as well: Collector App: Allow "Copy Feature" for features with relationships
snapping! snapping! snapping! snapping!
Would like to snap a new line feature to the end of one I just created. Very frustrating.
Surely this is vital. We desperately need snapping in collector. Come on ESRI
WOW! It still isn't done and the user conference is upon us again.
SNAP to IT ESRI !!!!
I'm looking so forward to writing auto snapping parameters to run another process just to snap together all the THOUSANDS of features our field crews have entered.
MOVE THIS UP the ABSOLUTE NECESSITY list
