The lastest version of AGOL allows you to specify a heat map style to a layer. I have successfully created an AGOL map that uses that style. Now I want to use the map/layer in operations dashboard. In operations dashboard the point data is displayed rather than the heat map. Are heat maps not supported in operations dashboard or have I done something wrong?
As of now, the heat map styling is not supported in Operations Dashboard. I know a lot of customers are interested in this functionality, so we are working to resolve those issues. Once we have an update in place, it will be posted on the Operations Dashboard blog.
The next evolution of Operations Dashboard, which is completely browser based, will support smart-mapping capabilities such as heat maps. We are targeting our next beta release for ArcGIS Online in next couple weeks.
