I want to create assigments from my selection in Operations Dashboard and send this to a project in Workforce. Is this possible, and can someone give me the workflow for this?

Hi Jon,

Currently there is no out to the box solution for this. Operations Dashboard is focused on presentation and does not edit or create features. You might be able to create a custom extension for Operation Views that would work with the Windows based product.

In the upcoming browser-based Operations Dashboard, we are still maintaining the focus on presentation and do not edit or create features. 

As far as creating Workforce Assignments, is there a reason you want to use Operations Dashboard over the Workforce Web App? As a dispatcher, you can select features in the map and create assignments from them.

Hi Aron, and thanks for your reply.

I have some large dataset where Operations Dashboard is a great tool to present and sort this data. Today am I using Powel Dashboard Template ( )which do the same as operations dashboard, but also have the ability to create assignments in workforce directly. I was curious if Operations dashboard could do the same, but it seems that I will continue with Powel Dashboard.

I find it easy to create single assigments in Workforce Web App, but when it comes to create assigments based on attributes, I haven’t figured out how to do this. Do you have any tips?

Thank you in advance,

Jon Anders

You can script the creation of the assignments: GitHub - Esri/workforce-scripts: A set of scripts to help administer Workforce projects. 

The other possibility is to create your "Dashboard" using the Dashboard theme (Theme—Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS | ArcGIS ) in Web AppBuilder and add the assignment layer as editable layer and include the Edit widget—Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS | ArcGIS
