Hello,

I have configured my popup to open a link to another site, but it opens the link in what I think is some internal browser within the ArcGIS app. is this possible? there are no settings to configure and there is only a button that says 'open in Safari'. What is this and how can I allow it allow webpage pop-ups.

background: user clicks a parcel, I provide a link to our document management system, passing in the parcel's ID, viola a list of documents appear, but I can't open then unless I 'open in safari'. Not the end of the world but just curious.

thanks,

Dave

In the ArcGIS for iOS app there is no way to configure the internal browser that will popup when you tap on a link. If you want to keep it inside the app run a link through an image/media in the popup.

On a side note - the ArcGIS apps are being retired from the AppStore, Google Play and Amazon app store August 30th. Here is a link to the blog post.

Have you tried this workflow in Explorer for ArcGIS (iOS & Android)?

Thanks for the response and the link. I did try Explorer and it opened my link in Safari so that is good.

We just got our users used to the ArcGIS app, I guess a little change won't kill them.......
