I have an Operations Dashboard with Fire Hydrants for annual flushing that were assigned by Shift. I have added a category selector and it works to filter based on the shift.
I am trying to get the map to zoom after the filter is applied.
I see the subset filtered out, but it does not zoom. I have configured the map action to when selection changes on the hydrant to zoom, but am I missing something? The map does not zoom to the filtered hydrants.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It looks like this may have been implemented under a different Idea:
In the June 2022 release of ArcGIS Dashboards, elements with categories based on grouped values (such as a category selector) can now target maps with pan, zoom, and flash actions.
It sounds like you have a Category Selector configured using Grouped Values to filter by Shift.
The Category Selector can only zoom the map if it is configured using Features (since those have geometries).
Can you share the dashboard or screenshots of your configuration?
That is correct, I do have Grouped Values in the Category Selector. It looks like if I change it to Features then I get each individual hydrant to select rather than all of the hydrants assigned to a shift. Is there a way to configure that so it selects all hydrants assigned to a given shift with the Features use with the Category Selector?
That is a current limitation of Operations Dashboard. Using Features with the Category selector is designed to select one or more specific features (which have geometry that can be optionally zoomed/panned/flashed to). Using Grouped Values is designed to select features by a common attribute. At this time there is no way to accomplish what you want to do. This is might be something that will be enhanced with future releases (I'll open an issue with our team to discuss our options).
Thanks. That is what I was suspecting but wasn't sure. I do have a work around as I have polygons for each shift so I can zoom to those.
It would be nice to see the functionality of what I was trying to do added so I appreciate your consideration of this with your team.
Each year I update this dashboard, I have to go back to the AGOL site and remember how I did it because off hand I don't know
What I did was create Feature Layer that has all of our assigned areas by station and shift. This layer is used as a category selector where the values for match what is in the hydrants for assignment station and shift. An action is placed on the category selector that then filters the hydrants.
Hope this process works for your dashboard.
I was hoping to do the same thing as you. It is helpful to know this is a current limitation. I have posted this topic on ESRI's ideas page. Hopefully Aaron continues to pursue this functionality for future releases.
Voting up the idea will help the enhancement along.
