I am using the Timeline widget in Exb and for some reason it starts with a 4-digit year, the other dates in the widget are formatted as month/day. How do I adjust the first date to be in a Month/day format?
The 4-digit year appears in both style options in Exb
I am using the "Customize time setting"
The base map is using a Living Atlas layer: National Weather Service Precipitation Forecast
The time slider in the map does not start off with a 4-digit year
Hi @RyanBohan - we have not yet provided the custom time format settings, so unfortunately that's the behavior for now. We will take your case into consideration for further evaluation. Thanks for bringing this up and keep tuned.
@TonghuiMing Thank you for the quick feedback.
Also is there a way to set the default speed in Exb?
In the map I set the play rate set to "Fast"
In Exb it is changed to Medium. How do I change the default speed to "Fastest"?
The current logic for Timeline is that, if you honor the Map viewer time settings, the speed will be inherited from the Map; if you go with the Custom time settings, the default speed at runtime will be "Medium" - basically what you have seen.
Also a candidate for future enhancement discussions.
To clarify if I want the default speed at runtime to be fast, I can only use the map to adjust the Timeline.
Please take into consideration adding speed settings to Exb.
The data I am using is a 72-hour window. Exb does a great job in the customized settings adjusting the timeline widget to only reflect the currently available data.
Hi @RyanBohan - as for the speed settings, it has been enhanced in the recent AGOL 2023 June release. You can give it a try.
In the custom mode:
- If in a previously-configured app with custom mode, the default speed will be set as 'Medium'
- If using a feature layer or map service layer directly, the default speed will be 'Medium'
- If using a web map as the data source in newly-created apps, the default speed will honor what has been configured inside the MV
Yes, I was able to Configure the time settings to default to Fast.
Is there any way to remove the year from the start of the timeline? I am only showing a sliding 3-day window, so no need to show the year. Either having the start date/time, or simply today would be more appropriate.
Thank you for the information.
Currently Experience Builder labels the year in 3 locations.
Please consider removing the 3rd label for year. Keeping it Month/Day. It seems 2023 would be best to represent a new year only, the first section of the Timeline slider (below) does not represent 6 months.
