How can I put a coordinate grid on a map layout in the new ArcGIS Pro? Is this feature not implemented yet?
Correct, not implemented yet.
In the meantime, one way to get around that limitation is to create data frame grids/graticules in ArcMap, convert them to graphics and import the mxd/layout. Of course, that means they will be static graphics.
Alternatively, you should also be able to use grid and graticule layers, which are features layers and so should work just like any other feature layer.
Will this likely be in the July release?
Sorry, Paul. No it won't be in the 1.1 release due out in July.
Any thoughts on when grids will be added to ArcGIS Pro layouts?
sorry...then generally don't announce when...but what is new and most people miss this in the online help files

I can't really say. There are a lot of factors involved in planning each release and so much can change that there's no way we can get very specific about future releases. It's not that we're trying to hide anything, it's just that we don't have the information until we get into the release and even then some things can slip (and sometimes other things get added as priorities shift) if they turn out to be more involved than we had planned for or something else comes up.
David Barnes - is there support for MGRS / USNG coordinate systems within the new grid capabilities in 1.4? If not, do we know if this is in the pipeline?
UTM or USNG is used by SAR Teams in the United States and USNG is a FEMA standard.

Be aware that David Barnes has retired from Esri as of last week, so you may not get a response on that tag .
AS you've discovered 1.4 has Graticules, grids are on the docket for future release. I'll ping the layout team about your specific requirement and see what they say.
Hi Paul. While it's not in Pro, you might be interested in the Grid Overlay Widget we released last month:
ArcGIS Solutions Web AppBuilder Widgets | ArcGIS Solutions
Configure the Grid Overlay widget - ArcGIS Solutions Web AppBuilder Widgets | ArcGIS Solutions
Thank you Natalie Feuerstein! This is really great. I had a few people ask me when this will become part of AGOL hosted webapp builder
Thanks Jeremy and congrats David Barnes!
I also need to add a UTM grid to my layout. Am I correct in assuming you can only add a lat/long grid in Pro 1.4?
Yes, Pro 1.4 supports graticules (lat/long) only. Measured grids, including UTM grids are planned for some of the upcoming releases after 1.4.
It looks like Grids have made it into the 1.4 release!!!! Stay tuned.
Ok this is a good start - there is an add Graticules functionality in ArcGIS Pro 1.4, just released today. https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/layouts/add-and-modify-graticules.htm
Now, you can add grids with ArcGIS Pro 1.4
I have read the above link and still cannot find an option to add graticules in arcpro 1.4
When you follow the directions Add graticules, what specifically is missing or not available?
The option to add measured grids ex: UTM, MGA etc...
See ArcGIS Pro Roadmap:
Near-termLayout Grids - Measured Grids on the layout allowing you to display coordinates on your map from any projected coordinate system.
What you want doesn't exist yet, but it is in the near-term ("next release or two") on the road map.
OF COURSE, they had to give it a new name. I'm trying to remember what they were called in ARCPLOT, but I know it wasn't "graticule" or "measured grids".
The fact that this is STILLLLLLLLLLLLLL not available and that ESRI has not implemented a fix yet is INSAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNEEEEEEE. What? Am I awake and living in 2017 on the planet Earth? Am I really expected to use this product to make a useable map? ?? I am soooooooo frustrated. Unbelieveable. MapInfo here I come? QGIS? Wow.
It would be super helpful if the ability to add custom overlay grids (like this http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/10.3/map/page-layouts/creating-custom-overlay-grids.htm) was made available in Pro.
Custom Overlay Grids are on our road map for a future Pro release. Do you have a specific grid you are trying to create?
Thanks David. I will look forward to that future Pro release.
I am attempting to migrate one of my maps that is a core product for our organization from ArcMap to Pro. I use a custom overlay based on a polygon feature class to represent the Alberta Township System grid as a border on my map. I found a suggestion to convert to graphic in ArcMap to bring it into Pro (ArcGIS Pro Layout - Reference Grid), however ArcMap will not allow me to convert to graphic (the button is not active) so I may just have to wait until the functionality is added to Pro.
Thanks Kristen, We are working hard to add additional Grid functionality into Pro. Right now our priority is MGRS grids followed by Reference grids. Custom Overlay grids will come after those.
Is the measured grid implemented in 1.4? I can’t see any.
try 2.0.1 See what's new... bookmark this page to keep up to date with the program
Thanks Dan. It is available in 2.0.1
