The ability to link attachments (images, docs, etc.) to features in ArcGIS Online is great functionality, but it would be nice if, instead of having attachments open in a new window, they would open inside the pop-up window itself. The new window containing the attachment tends to cover up the map.


Yes! we work with floor plans and other data in PDF this would be huge if implemented.

It is stunning that such a basic feature is not possible yet without doing a ridiculously convoluted workaround.


This seems so obvious. Take a photo in Collector/Quick Capture, display attached image in a pop up. Seriously, is there no easy way?


Coming in here in Nov 2020 to see if this is a feature yet 🙂  It is not 😞

Students collected over 600 points.  So sad that we get links and not actual images.

What's confusing is you can have a field in the table with image URLs and those could be pointed to.  Shouldn't it be easy to point to the backend URLs of these images stored in our own Org?

What's more confusing is that, curiously, images ARE visible in a pop up if using a dashboard.  But not in the original webmap.  Can the functionality of how it works in the dashboard be implemented in the web map?
