One of my coworkers put this list together and I thought it was extremely valuable given the need to share maps and data with your communities during this time. These are all best practices that are important to aid in the success and security of your maps and data.


  • Thumbnails – create a good thumbnail as a preview of your content.  Also “brand” your content to represent and indicate your organization 
  • Profiles – make sure to update your profile so others know who you are and the organization you represent 
  • Editing / Views 
  • Viral Apps Best Practices 
  • Dashboard Best Practices – no map actions 
  • Group Sharing – facilitate secure information sharing between organizations 
  • Use HTTPS / What’s New in ArcGIS Online
