What's new

Below are feature updates for Enterprise Sites that are part of each release of ArcGIS Enterprise. To provide feedback on upcoming functionality, sign up for the User Research Lab.

  • When adding content to a site, a re-designed interface allows you to enter basic metadata, and set access permissions upon upload. The new workflow also handles error messages in a better way.
  • You can now add Microsoft PowerPoint files (.ppt, .pptx) to the content library; these files are typically used to create presentations or slides.
  • Enterprise Sites zooms to the geographic extent of a dataset's features by default on a content preview page. Content managers can now define and update an item’s extent directly from the content details page.
  • In an explore view, users can add a geographic feature to a dataset or map and filter to its location. You can also filter to an enlarged area (buffer) around a drawn feature to contain data of interest. Enter a distance for the buffer around the relevant point, line, or area.
  • Services with Time Info enabled in ArcGIS Enterprise will automatically display a Time slider. This allows the user to animate and filter the service's data by the time attribute.

11.0 release

  • Once you use the main search bar on a site or page, another search bar is added directly above the results.
  • When editing a site, you can now access a user profile menu in the Layout Editor that displays your username (as signed in).
  • Configure the content side panel to be open or closed by default (appears for explore views of content), based on an item's content family (for site editors). Supported content family types are Apps, Maps, Datasets, Documents, and Surveys.
  • Look for upcoming changes in base font size and rem units in sites (rem = a relative size text format). See details in this Esri Community post.
  • Look for new accessibility guidance on the Gallery Card, as well as Site Settings and Theme, on how to underline links to meet the ’WCAG 1.4.1 Use of Color guideline. Learn more about how to design sites for accessibility and how this product meets accessibility requirements in this ArcGIS Enterprise Sites report.
  • Increase the time a chart card or summary statistics card will wait to connect to a server before showing an error message (while setting up the card). This primarily applies to users with very large services.
  • If you encounter a 'Page Not Found' while in Sites, there is now a direct link to the site home page.
