Would it be possible to share the roadmap of Experience builder so that we can have an overview of what's coming on and when?
Thank you in advance for your answer.
Thanks a lot for your answer and taking these request into consideration. Here are some precision/use case regarding these request. The general idea is that we do built webapp for our business team and would them to be able to work and do (almost) every thing without moving from the webapp like a GIS Professionnal would do with ArcGIS Pro. For example if the user of the webapp want to modify the way a layer is displayed in the webapp (symbology, label, field in the pop-up etc...) and save this configuration in a webmap, he is currently obliged to switch to the mapviewer, do this modification and come back to the webapp and use the "load/change" which is clearly not an ergonomic experience. The idea is to give user the ability to do everything from the webapp (or tomorrow within ExB app).
Hope my explanations/descriptions of our use cases are clear. Feel free to let me know if you have other question. We could also organize a call if needed.
Thanks for the clarification. It seems that you would expect ExB to be self-contained other than relying on Map Viewer to authorize the map. Although we currently have no plan to do so, I will share your requests with the team.
As far as saving the map and export graphics to hosted layers, I think these functions will be supported. Enhancements have been logged per your request.
I'd love to see the ability to use custom fonts in the ArcGIS online-version of ExB. Ideally it would be great to have full control over all theme variables including fonts in the builder, like in the developer edition.
This would allow us to build apps that integrate better with existing websites, and to build stand-alone apps using customer-specific themes and branding.
Dear Jianxia Song,
Thank you for your answer. Here are some of the main new feature or conversion of widget existing in WAB that would drastically improve our usage of ExB. Most of the new features below have been requested for a long time by WAB users and I guess WAB Widget I have listed below are probably the one which are the most used.
Translation/rewriting of WAB Widget
Thanks a lot in advanced for your feedback and @ your disposal for any questions and/or precisions.
Thanks for the clarification and thoughtful proposals. Regarding new features, #1 is not under the consideration as it is recommended to do so in Map Viewer. You may create a custom widget. #2 you may add or remove a layer on the fly like what the Add Data widget does in WAB, then save the added layers with the web map out as a new web map. It is unlikely to allow you to remove the layers from the existing map. #3 is on the road map once JSAPI 4 and new Map Viewer start to support it. #4 Saving map is doable but loading a new map will break the widgets dependent on map layers as stated in one of the comments above. #5 need to have further evaluation.
Regarding migration of WAB OOTB widgets to ExB, #1 is a common workflow which should be doable. #2 is under our consideration of consolidating functions in one widget. #3 Could you help articulate it with a user case? #4 is similar to #1. #5- Analysis widget is not part of JSAPI 4 yet, once available, we plan to wrap it in ExB. #6 JSAPI 4 may have the feature table ready around UC. We will wrap it in ExB once available.
Hope this helps,
Jerome and Annina,
Thank you so much for your feedback. One big item in the near road map is to integrate Experience Builder (ExB) in ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8.1 planned to be available in July. In addition, to build a robust foundation for the future, we put efforts on the product improvement for the upcoming July release, including ability to copy, paste, and rotate the widget, performance optimization, UI and UX improvement, support for more data type, support for attachments and feature layer symbol in the Image widget, display Arcade and related table in the Feature Info widget, as well as new Bookmark widget, etc. Please noted that the plan is subject to change.
Your suggestions and feedback are valuable. I will reply to your comments separately.
