I am using the map to .kml geoprocessing tool. The .kml is created but is not showing the title I have selected in the pop up. I can change it in ARC but it will not change in the .kml.

I know I'm overlooking something. What do I need to do the display the title of the attribute in the drop down in Google Earth?

Check out https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/tool-reference/conversion/layer-to-kml.htm which should help, also if you label the feature in ArcGIS Pro, the kml will carry that label as the name for the feature. 

However, one thing to note is if using the kml in GE, only point features will show a "Placemark" label.     

Another trick is to add a field titled FolderPath to your feature class and populate it with the folder structure you would like to see in the kml, check this link https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/tool-reference/conversion/kml-conversion.htm for help with this and other tips.

Maybe once you change it in ArcMap, export it again to another kml to keep the changes then try again in Google Earth?

Thank you for the advise.

I forgot to mention it is in ArcGIS Pro, not that it would affect the steps that you have presented.

Unfortunately I get that same result.

@JohnSpears2009 

Would you mind sharing your .kml file with me?  Also, what version of ArcGIS Pro are you using?
