GeoNet Update: “Online” word omission issue - Resolved

On October 9th we reported that GeoNet was experiencing a “bug” when our members used the word Online in comments and replies. Linking to ArcGIS Online or posting the word Online within a comment/reply in GeoNet resulted in an omission of the word from the content, URL, or HTML once it was posted. 

 

We want to apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused our Community members. Our platform vendor recently pushed an update to GeoNet and the "Online" word omission issue is now resolved. We want to thank you for your continuing support and contributions to the GeoNet community.

An uploaded file in GeoNet is used the same way as a collaborative document. When you want to collaborate on a file, you can upload it to the GeoNet Community and allow others to assist with the file. Files can also be attached to other GeoNet content types.

 

Keep in mind not all collaborators have the same permissions, software or operating systems and may not be able to open an uploaded or attached file. Files must not be larger than 50 MB and can be a Microsoft Office file (ppt, doc, xls) or PDF.
