On Dashboard and time-enabled maps

Hello:

  1. As far as I know time-enabled webmaps are not supported in Dashboards. Does any well-informed person know the Esri plans for this?
  2. If the web map is time-enabled, even though it is showed  only at a specific timestamp, is there a way to control which timestamp is actually drawn in the dashboard?

Many thanks

Hi Jorge,

I had the same problem until I found Ops Dashboard URL parameters. You can set a Parameter for dates and date ranges. One of our developers looked at the ArcGIS JavaScript API Timeslider widget and created a very simple app that sends the dates via URL parameters to the Ops Dashboards - you can link all widgets to update via the URLs. The TimeSlider widget has various modes for Single date, Date Range/Window and Cumulative. Also auto play and Speed mode. This is a great interim solution. If you use AGOL, you need to host the script, but it can reference the online Dashboard -  All security is through AGOL.

Hope this helps.

Many thanks for your response. If my understanding is correct, *to retrieve

and show a specific snapshot* I have to send to the dashboard, via its

calling url, a parameter with the snapshot, that is, something like

"?ts=202000603". And then I have to somehow, in the Dashboard edit

internals, link this value with the corresponding table field.

Is this right?
