A common question that we receive in Support and on GeoNet is “why can’t I see my group in the share dialog”. It’s happened to the best of us and maybe you can identify with the image below.

 

 

 

 

But I have good news, this is expected behavior when the group has the following setting enabled:

 

 

 

We intentionally don’t show these groups in the general share dialog because we want sharer’s to be aware of the elevated privileges in this group type. To do that we require a more intentional sharing workflow that is done from the item owner’s content page. This helps to ensure that the items are being used and updated by the correct organization members. 

 

So, if you don’t see your group in the share dialog don’t fret! Go to the content page, select the item and click share > access and update capabilities:

 

 

 

 

You’ll be met with a new share dialog that will display your group:

 

 

 

 

If you enabled this setting by mistake, and you don’t need all members to be able to update the items you share with that group, you’ll need to create a new group. This setting cannot be changed after the initial group creation is complete.

Sharing and Collaboration across ArcGIS Online Organizations:

Ideas submitted to the ArcGIS Ideas Space by the community impact new and existing functionality in ArcGIS Online. It’s great to understand the workflows that our users would like to achieve with ArcGIS Online and suggestions to improve current experiences. With the December 2017 update 11 ideas were implemented. This listicle highlights 9 of those ideas and the resulting functionality in the release.

*

1. Update URL’s for layers used in Web Maps from HTTP to HTTPS or from a staging version of the layers to a production version of the layers.

*

*

You can now update the URL of layers in your map from HTTP to HTTPS, or from a staging version of the layers to a production version of the layers. This is done through the map’s item page.

*

2. Designate items in the organization as authoritative or deprecated

*

*

Items can now be designated as either authoritative or deprecated. This makes it easier for others to find authoritative items while discouraging the use of items that are out-of-date. Items marked with one of these content status indicators are identified by a corresponding badge on the item page and are returned when users search or browse for content using the Status filter. Organization members can also limit layer searches to authoritative layers only when adding layers using the Search for Layers option in Map Viewer.

4. Two new editing configuration options were added to the layer settings.

*

*

*

*

5. Arrows have been added and an option to show direction on line symbology.

*

*

For line symbols, you can now show line direction by selecting an arrow option. For single-arrow lines, arrow placement is based on the start and end points of each line feature.

*

*

*

6. Hosted feature layer views now have an option to limit features to an area of interest.

*

*

You can limit a hosted feature layer view to a specific area by defining a spatial extent. These definitions are saved with the hosted feature layer view and allow you more control over what content people see.
