Please provide a Scale box which will enable users to see the current scale of the map.
This has been marked by Kory Kramer as a Duplicate of Text scale in ArcGIS Online.
It is possible to force current scale in advanced print options and see what scale the map is but this is not ideal for users who simply want to know what scale their map is as they zoom in and out.
Dean, can you please specify what product you're referring to and mark the Categories appropriately? If this is about ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro, there is a scale box, so I'm assuming you're referring to maybe ArcGIS Online?
Yes, ArcGIS Online and more importantly for us, Portal which is used by internal staff.
Thanks, Dean. I see you added ArcGIS Online. I added the ArcGIS for Server including Portal Category as well.
Thank you, you can tell I'm new to Geonet !
Hey Dean, no worries, gotta get started at some point. So I was actually looking around, and found that this Idea you've submitted is a Duplicate of Text scale in ArcGIS Online. It will be better if you go to that Idea, up vote it, and in the comments also mention that you want the functionality in Portal. I know that the typical release cycle is that functionality is released in ArcGIS Online, and then usually is included in the following release of Portal. There isn't always a 1:1 relationship like this between the two applications, but I think with something like displaying scale in the map viewer, it is likely...
Anyway, please read through Submitting a New Idea as part of the learning process. We LOVE to hear from you and the user community about what you need in the software to make it work better for you, but we want to make sure we're getting all the votes compiled together into single ideas as much as possible. So I'll mark this one as a duplicate, and you can add your support for the existing one.
Thanks for all the information. I am slightly concerned that idea was submitted 4years ago and might have been forgotten about.
Hi Dean. I see that we have a parallel enhancement request that is in the product plan, but it is from around the same time frame: NIM096407: Include an easier way to determine the current map s..
I just pinged the ArcGIS Online team to make sure they're aware of the continuing need for this functionality.
