ArcGIS Workforce

Workforce for ArcGIS (Web App) Released

Riding the coattails of the ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6.1 release, Workforce for ArcGIS released as a separate setup (v18.0.2) that you can download from the My Esri website. Go to My Organizations > Downloads to grab the setup titled “Workforce for ArcGIS 18.0.2”. This is a minor bug fix release and is at feature parity with the web app embedded within ArcGIS Online.

Also, a new Workforce module was added to the ArcGIS API for Python with version 1.4.1 earlier this year. Using the new Workforce module greatly improves and simplifies your Workforce automation tasks and it works great with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6.1.

In case you are wondering what’s next for Workforce, we are busy working on the next major update right now! Here are some of the key new capabilities we are focused on:

There is a lot more we have on our road map – starting with support for integrating 3rd party apps in your Workforce projects, extending the assignment schema, passing more data from the assignment to Collector and Survey123 using app integration, enabling multiple project owners and much more.

Our Workforce development team has started a new project called Location Tracking. To learn more, please read the blog published during our Esri User Conference and watch the demo from the plenary presentation.

We greatly value your feedback. Please engage in conversations with the team on GeoNet and/or send us an email at Workforce4ArcGIS@esri.com and let us know how we are doing.
