Option to Copy/Paste strings to Build Expressions in Experience Builder (Embed Widget)

I am building a page where an embedded dashboard would dynamically change based on a selection from a list widget. I am achieving this by leveraging ArcGIS Dashboard's URL Parameter capability with Expressions in Experience Builder. 

I noticed that it is not possible to copy/paste into the expression builder. While this is not a problem for shorter expressions, I found it error-prone to have to type the URL. It would be great to have the option to copy/paste strings into the builder.

I'd give this two Kudos if I could. Need this option.


Hooray, this seems to be fixed now! Though I was really improving my typing accuracy, I was relieved to discover that this seems to be fixed with the latest update and copy/paste now works. Thanks kudos givers, I guess we were heard. 



Does anybody know where to find the expressions and how to edit them?

After I created a new expression I cannot find a way to edit it so, for every change that I want to do, I have to create and insert a new one.

A similar question has been asked on 12-15-2020 but there was no response.

Thank you in advance,



Not sure if this ability has been added for the embed widget, but I would LOVE to see it for the expression builder for buttons - I want to use dynamic URLs to link to different pages depending on the record selection, and it's a huge pain to have to type the URL in instead of just copy/pasting.

would love to copy past that Google part, instead of typing it out!would love to copy past that Google part, instead of typing it out!
