Since the configurable app template, Information Lookup, is retired, I've been attempting to replicate its functionality with no luck. The Feature Info widget in Experience Builder doesn't work because it only allows data from one layer to display and I need data from several layers to display. Is there a solution for displaying popups for multiple layers in a sidebar?

Hi Hannah,

Have you tried using either the Zone Lookup or Nearby templates? Those two apps might be able to assist with replacing the Information lookup apps.

Those are good suggestions but they don't replicate the search location capability.

  • Store the search location in a layer to track where users are clicking or searching in the application.

That's a really great feature of the old information-lookup.

Thanks.

Yes...please bring back the "Information-Lookup" feature!  It is exactly what we are needing for a Customer Service tool!  Thanks

Which features of Information Lookup are you looking for? As Sarah pointed out most of the capabilities are available in the Lookup or Nearby apps.

KellyHutchins, thanks for asking. 

  •  Popups from several layers not just one.
  • The ability to do a  lookup based on a simple lat long point clicked on the map.
  • Store the search location in a layer to track where users are clicking or searching in the application.

 Options one and two are currently supported in the Zone Lookup and Nearby apps. We are looking into the feasibility of option 3. One question about storing the location. Are you using your own locator? Or the default esri world locator?

Kelly - Thanks for the reply.  Its good to know that those 2 instant apps are more functional, I'll have to try them out again.  I didn't try the Nearby app, just the Zone Lookup.

With regard to the storing location functionality, the Information Lookup app allows you to use both, so we set up a layer representing addresses of locations but also use the esri world locator.  Thank you for considering this option, I hope your team is able to find a way to include it.
