Hello all,

I have a time-enabled layer that I brought online from ArcGIS Pro. I had time enabled on the layer and the slider appears in both the ArcGIS Pro map, as well as the map when I load it on AGOL.

I want to put this into a Web App, preferably with the dashboard theme, however when I go to add the Time Slider widget, it is not listed in the list of widgets. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

The answer to this can be found in the widget's manifest. More specifically, in the inPanel property. In the standard WAB interface, you won't see this, but refer to the WAB Dev docs for details.

What it comes down to is that the time slider widget's inPanel property is set to "false". This means that the time slider widget cannot be contained within a panel-specific widget, such as a dashboard panel or a fixed sidebar, as in the Jewelry Box theme.

Other examples of this property would be the Summary, Incident Awareness, and Swipe widgets. These widgets don't exist inside of a "box" framework that can be assigned to a panel, but rather have a very specific function / position in the app.

Notice the way the Time Slider appears in a map:

As with the other examples, this element can't just be reassigned to a panel. You can have a widget button (under the search bar, for example) that launches this widget, regardless of the theme chosen, but that's it.
