- When connecting new fields or on initial sync, GIS data wins on any conflict. If the GIS field is empty then Cartegraph data flows to GIS.
- If you are having trouble with connecting several fields, start with just the ID.
- GIS domains must connect to a Cartegraph library and may associate to only one library.
- Mark GIS connections as inactive to save time in recreating them when you need it again—when you reactivate the GIS connection it starts the initial sync process again.
- It’s always best to make sure your field lengths and types in GIS match what you have in Cartegraph.
- Anytime you make changes to GIS domain values you need to republish the GIS service for Cartegraph to see the changes.
- All Cartegraph field updates are updated in GIS in real time and with the Cartegraph ArcMap Add-in your GIS updates flow to Cartegraph in real time.
- When setting up a server connection to ArcOnline the URL, user name and password are case sensitive.
- With the Geometric Network turned on only attribute changes get synced with GIS. If your GIS feature is M or Z aware Cartegraph automatically blocks spatial edits for sync only attributes.
- If your Retire date field is GIS connected, Cartegraph syncs the retire date to GIS before discontinuing syncs. Remember, syncs ignore retired records and records with no spatial data.
