Is there a space where Arcade is a valid label? I notice that a number of ArcGIS Pro posts are directed to Arcade, yet there is no Arcade label.  I just tried in insert Arcade as a label and things turned red as I was scolded for not entering a valid label.  

Can we get an Arcade Label in the ArcGIS Pro space and/or the Data Management space?

Limiting Arcade to the ArcGIS Online space seems kind of, well, limiting...

It is always nice to see a conversation between  @JoeBorgione  "can't wait to retire...." and @DanPatterson "... sort of retired...".

There is not a space for just Arcade, since the use of Arcade depends on the profile and the product it is used in. There is the Attribute Rule space, but this is Pro related and just touches on 3 profiles where Arcade is used.

I did notice the Arcade label as indicated by Dan. It is on age 3217 (sorry I lost count scrolling through the pages), so this might not be the most user-friendly option:

... and Dan... I know "Python rules", but so does "Arcade" (in its own special way 😊)

Kind regards,

Xander (still a long way to retirement...)

😂 

"python rules" vs "python rules"  It all depends on the word emphasis

Why not have a dedicated Arcade space?  Divide it into however many boards it takes to cover the profiles and product lines it needs to. In the developers community you'll find Python and ArcGIS API for Python and each has a number of boards.  Just sayin'.

Hi @JoeBorgione ,

You have a valid point. Sometimes the questions are generic Arcade questions no matter where it is used and I for sure would love to see a space just for Arcade. Maybe we should include @LouiseB_Esri in the conversation and hear what she has to say on the topic...

@XanderBakker ; I'm preaching to the choir when I say this but Arcade is here to stay and will only increase in functionality and user base.  The ESRI forum is the perfect platform with which to provide resources.

hopefully they don't follow the same .... Avenue .... that they did last time.  If it is just dolled up java-something, they should open source the code then

Hi @DanPatterson ,

When you started with ArcGIS Pro and noticed that the project file extension was called ".aprx" that should have been quite the shock, right? Maybe even expected to see .ave(x) files?

Python and Arcade both serve different purposes. There might be a bit of overlap, but beautiful things can be done with both. It is time to embrace them both:

(although maybe I should have used a different image to symbolize that...)
