Using web maps powered by Hosted Feature Services you can rapidly deploy field collection schemas to the field for use with Collector for ArcGIS.

- Explorer added support for viewing public maps shared to ArcGIS.com without having to sign in as a named user of an ArcGIS Online organization.

Imagine you are 1 of 2 people running an entire department, and your boss says:
