Hi all, 

I have a map which contains regional content in a global map.  When a user opens the dashboard they see a global overview and then navigate to their region.  A user has asked whether the content can automatically focus on their area from the start by knowing where their device (computer/laptop etc.) is.  

My first thought was to have a look at the "find my location" feature and see if that would help.  I couldn't see that feature in ArcGIS Dashboard even though it is the standard Map. Am I missing something?

My next question is that I am guessing even if I have missed it, it won't automatically centre on launch.  The user will have to click on the button to make the map zoom/pan and even if it did, it would zoom too far in.  Anyone any ideas how this first step can be achieved from the get go?

Cheers

Liam

I think it is a limitation for Operations Dashboads.  You can however add the location functionality to the map if you design your dashboard with WAB.
