I need to display multiple routes on a map. I love that ArcOnline allows you to create routes, however, you cannot make that route into a layer (at least to my knowledge). Google MyMaps allows users to do this, however the amount of routes is limited and you can only show one at a time. I think Esri can step up its game by adding this feature.

What do y'all think? Is this already possible and am I just missing something?

Also: I would've tried tracing the route, however, it disappears as soon as I try to add a new layer.

Okay, so because it was such a hassle using ArcOnline and ArcMap, I just used Google MyMaps. It is not as customizable, but it get the job done. Sorry, Esri :/. And MyMaps is free too... eek.

It's certainly possible.

You may use Map Viewer Classic (Get Directions) to save and share as a Route layer.
