The recent ArcGIS Online update blog post mentions that the Map Viewer Beta update is 'coming soon'. Do we have a time frame for that?
Yup we are hoping to get this feature packed release out by mid July (subject to change ).
We will be pushing out blogs covering these new features and enhancements when the release goes lie.
Thanks for your interest!
Thanks Russell! Love these big updates but Grouping was a big one on my list. Glad to hear I only have to wait a little longer! Keep up the great work
No problem! If you can share your use cases for groups thats always helpful for where we are going forward.
At a minimum I am hoping for one layer of grouping. For example, environmental data could be grouped as we would in the Desktop software. Currently we have to create and maintain Layer lists which are cumbersome and painful.
Ideally we could have multi-level grouping (as in desktop software and when creating web maps with Server).
I also hope that layers from different hosted feature layers can be added to different groups. i.e. they don't all have to come from the same hosted feature layer to be grouped.
Hope this helps. Happy to expand upon anything if it will be useful
Yup for the initial release we wont be providing a nested group authoring experience. This is something we are gauging user requirements on and we will be supporting the nested group scenarios that a user could publish from Pro which will be included in their release later this year.
Different layer types can be in the same group
Excellent news! Look forward to the release soon (mid-July is next week right ;-) )
The update is now live
New Vector feature markers?
Have the new vector feature markers been put in the latest beta? It seems to me that it was just the same old markers as before. I was really hoping for some great additions here, we really need some more variety that we can color-code easily.
The beta has not gone live yet but yes we have been working on some updates to symbols and a blog will come out shortly after the release going over the updates made to symbols.
