Crowdsource Reporter

Crowdsource Reporter app

The Crowdsource Reporter gallery app presents one or more maps to your users through which they can report problems or submit observations. The app can also be configured to support voting for and commenting on reports submitted by others.

Application users can anonymously submit reports, review existing reports, track the status of reports they submit, and comment or vote on reports submitted by others. The application can use social media or ArcGIS Enterprise portal credentials to authenticate users.

You can create a Crowdsource Reporter app by creating a group and creating an app using this template, or clicking Create > App > From Template on the My Content page.


To see the options available for this template, search your ArcGIS Enterprise portal using the app template name and open the app template item's detail page.


The Crowdsource Reporter app requires a group that contains at least one map with at least one feature layer that has add, update, and delete editing capabilities enabled. In addition, the following requirements must be met to expose full app functionality:

  • To enable votes, a feature layer in the map must have a numeric field for storing the number of votes on each feature.
  • To collect comments, a feature layer in the map must have a related table.
  • To allow authenticated users of the app to track reports they have submitted, the layer must have a text field for storing a GUID associated with their account.
  • To allow users of the app to submit supporting documents with the reports, a layer in the map must support attachments.
