Operations Dashboard - Retain Filters when Sharing

When sharing an Operations Dashboard, it would be great if you could retain the interactions you have made since opening the application. So for example, have an option to retain the applied filters and map extents. The aim is that when you send the link, it presents the end-user with the exact same view. You can also store the URL as a bookmark so you don't need to manually interact to get to the same place.

You can kind of do this right now. However the owner of the application needs to have URL Parameters setup, and you need to have the tech know-how to build the URL.

A similar concept is implemented in Map Tour Story Maps whereby you can check a button to 'link to current place' when sharing, after which appropriate URL Parameters are auto-generated. This is a less complex implementation, but definitely valuable.

Have you tried using URL parameters to see if they'd meet your needs? URL parameters—Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS | Documentation

Hey Meg - yes I have indeed used URL parameters. The idea here is that there is an interface that autogenerates the URL parameters, or the URL updates as you move around maps and apply filters so non-technical users can easily share the exact view that they have.


Posting a reply Michael to acknowledge that I've seen this idea.

Hope this finds you well,
