Hi there,

I can't be certain if I'm posting this question in the right section, However, I am trying to refer colleagues to a topic regarding ArcGIS Pro.

My question is, how do I provide a link to a colleague on exactly the section of a page I'm referring to? Without them scrolling or pressing Ctrl + F on the keyboard to locate the section?

For instance, in https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/help/layouts/customizing-your-map-extent.htm I want them to refer to the 'Multiple map frame constraints' section, without having to scroll and search. Meaning, when they click on a custom URL link it goes to that exact section of the page.

How can I create a URL link so that when they click, they will be able to refer the exact topic/subtopic?

Your assistance would be a great help, thank you in advance.

Hi Sam,

On the right-hand side of most help pages is an "In this topic" box with links to most of the major sections within the reference page. If you click the link to the section, then copy the URL, you'll get a tag to that "Bookmark" on the page:

https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/help/layouts/customizing-your-map-extent.htm#ESRI_SECTION1_...

Not all "sections" are available, but this does help get learners to the closest spot.
