Is it possible to configure the NearMe widget to search on local feature layers similar to the functionality in the Search Widget, instead of being locked into the geocoder option only? If so any advice would be great.
The NearMe widget allows you to choose layers from your AGOL web map to search on. As far as the geocoder goes, are you talking about the routing service?
I think I just realized what you were asking about the geocoder.
In your web map on AGOL you can set up default searches for your web map for features in your map.
The different searches can be seen when you click on the drop down arrow on the left of the search bar.
Also you could create your own custom locator that can search (geocode) by features. Then add that locator to your organizations list of locators and it will show up in the drop down list by the search bar too.
Hope that helps some.
Thanks for responding Stan,
I have setup feature layers for use the in Search widget and they work well in many apps along side the ESRI geocoder searching for Australia. I was just asking if this functionality could be added to the NearMe widget searching capabilities similar to the Search widget. I have many feature layers that are used for searching within the City and would work really well if I could configure them in the NearMe widget. I think the NearMe widget could really be of benefit to our organisation.
