Hi all, I'm new around here. I've configured a web app. My question is, can I allow users to search field data (feature data), in this case trail names) with the search feature?
I've seen this : Configure feature search—ArcGIS Online Help | ArcGIS -- but I do not have the "Find Locations" setting on the map in My Content or elsewhere. I'm not even sure if this is the correct approach.
Any help/direction would be most appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The issue is with the CSV. There were about 15 - 20 or so rows that had no coordinates for the Lat/Long fields. This was causing an issue when trying to create a feature service, only 400 features were created. I deleted these and then recreated the service and 1,220 features were created. You can take a look at the CSV and feature service (trails_updated) in the Group.
Do you know if you are using an ArcGIS Online Organization account (you will see 'My Organization' on the top banner) or a ArcGIS Online personal account? If you have an Organization account I would recommend creating your web app using the Web AppBuilder. This will allow you to easily create and configure your web app to fit the needs you want.
I am using ArcGIS Online with an Organization Account. I thought I was using the AppBuilder, which I launched from within the map itself (under my content I have a Web Map and a Web Mapping Application). Either way, it looks like I need to read the help section on the AppBuilder.
Thanks for the quick reply.
Well, I've been about to set up a Featured Layer and configure the search widget. It works well when it works. I'm having hit and miss results with searching my featured layer. Trail names that are in the data (I've dbl-checked) are not being found. Some are. It seems like less than 50 percent of the trails are actually searchable.
Any idea as to why or suggestions?
Thanks for the help.
Taking a look at your web application, it appears to be working. The search is finding the Trails without an issue for me. Have you tried different browsers?
I also created a web app called 'NRT Trail Data Web Application' in the Group you invited me to.
Here is how I had the Search widget configured:
