Why is there no Go To XY widget included in the set for Web App Builder? Most of our staff work in the back country where there is no civic address (or in some cases, even a road). When they get back to the office, the only way to figure out where they were is to hover the mouse over the map and move it around until the display coordinates match what they recorded on their handheld GPS.
You can zoom/center a map in a Web AppBuilder application using x,y coordinates.. Just add ¢er=x,y to the end of the URL for the application.
You can also enter an X,Y coordinate pair into the Find address or place search box to do the same as above.
And another option, use the GeoLookup widget (currently in Beta) to drag a CSV containing the lat/long onto the application and plot the points.
So I either have to explain to my (very) non-technical users how to modify a url in this very particular way or how to create a .CSV file and import it in to the app?
OR ESRI could include a commonly used tool in GIS in their web app builder widgets (and I've had ESRI technical support people say the same thing). I know which solution I prefer.
And I am probably just being snippy about this, but I find it immensely frustrating that people have to find these sorts of work-arounds for something that should be common sense.
What about the option to enter the X,Y in the Find address or place? That seems to be the easiest solution given your description of the technical acumen of your users It is also likely much faster the poking around on the map to find their location.
Longitude first (x coordinate value) then a comma and then the latitude (y coordinate value). I used your coordinate pair following that standard and it worked (see the image).
