Hello. I want to create an interactive map in AGOL with multiple layers and sublayers. However, there does not seem to be a way to group layers like you can in the ArcGIS Pro application. I've been reading old posts and this has come up in the past. Are there any other options without having to invest in enterprise and/or a third party software like Geocortex Essentials? Without the ability to group layers, AGOL is limited...I would be better off exporting to a pdf with layers.

This has been a long standing frustration among users, myself included, and as you said there are a multitude of Geonet blog posts and Ideas that discuss this.

Bad news is, I don't know of any immediate solution to help you with grouping layers. Good news....Map Viewer Beta is scheduled to start supporting this "Soon, Before Summer 2020"!!!

Indeed. I have an old map I did a couple of years back...It seems I was at the very least able to have layers and sublayers in the content view...the legend view lumped them all together, of course, but the hierarchy in content view was better than nothing...

Hi Michael Richards,

You may wish to vote for this Idea: Group layers for ArcGIS online.

It looks like someone has already suggested this in 2014 and the status of the idea now is: In Product Plan.

So, maybe, somewhere in the future, maybe even in the foreseeable future...

BR,

I have grouped layer list widgets.  I am using WebAPP Builder.  Trying to see if see if I can get one of them to be open while the rest of the layer list widgets are closed.  Any tips?
