Hm, did the April 2021 update of ArcGIS Online and Configurable Apps change the way that the introduction panel is displayed on the Nearby App?

I swear the search bar wasn't obscured by the welcome panel before. We can adjust the language, but it isn't intuitive for the user to X out the welcome panel to access the search bar.

Having it configured like the Zone Lookup where the panel is collapsible is ideal!

Thanks! Matt Payne actually offered some simple CSS to adjust for this in the meantime. For anyone interested:

On the Theme & Layout > Theme tab, paste directly into the Custom CSS box, publish, and relaunch your app and it should work:

#detailPanel{top:90px;} #refinePanel{display:block !important;}

(I did something like 150px to account for the slider as well)

Hi Dante,

Thanks for posting about this. We did not make this change in the April 2021 release. The behavior of the introduction panel was setup this way when the app was released initially. However, for the upcoming release we are looking into standardizing this behavior to using one of those options. I am going to take the feedback from your post and make a note of it for using the collapsable introduction panel. 

 

Thanks!

Sarah

Thank you, this was very helpful! After applying this fix on my app, the letters in the Introduction Title were slightly clipped on top and bottom. Adding a bit of padding to your Custom CSS fixed this for me:

#detailPanel{top:150px; padding-top:10px; padding-bottom:10px} #refinePanel{display:block !important;}

 

I would agree that Nearby having the same introduction behavior as Zone Lookup would be ideal. We use both side by side, and it would be a big plus to have a consistent user experience.

Thanks again!
