Configuring Branch Versioning in ArcGIS

Strictly by pre-registration only

What is this course about?

Support enterprise multiuser editing workflows.

This course prepares GIS professionals and database administrators to implement branch versioning in an enterprise geodatabase using ArcGIS Pro. Learn best practices to establish branch versioning workflows that support multiuser editing and the accuracy of your authoritative geospatial data. This course is especially relevant for organizations that have deployed ArcGIS Utility Network or ArcGIS Pro Parcel Fabric.

If you need training on traditional versioned editing workflows using ArcGIS Pro, see Implementing Versioned Workflows in a Multiuser Geodatabase.
