On June 26th we will receive an upgrade to our community platform. This upgrade will include a variety of features to help improve your GeoNet experience. Here are a couple features to be on the look out for:


Spotlight Search

The redesigned Spotlight Search is a great way to quickly find items using keywords when you don't need a more detailed investigation. It automatically includes wildcards as you type parts of words. Plus, check out the History and Suggestions tabs to pull up your viewing history or things you look at often.


Create a Copy

Documents can now be copied as a new document, discussion, or blog post. This is a great way to make templates for others to use.



Bulk File Upload

If you need to upload a large number of documents or files into the community, you can now use Create > Files (this menu selection replaces Uploaded file in the Create menu indicated by the pencil icon) to streamline the process. Select up to 50 files to upload to the same place in a single operation. Files are automatically named based on file names, but you can change their names after you upload them.

The 2015 Esri User Conference is only one month away, and there are going to be a lot of great presentations from both Esri and the user community. Two of those presentations are on the topic of GeoNet. Check them out below and add one to your UC schedule.
