I would like a map within my dashboard to be locked to its default extent.  I do not want users to pan or zoom.  Is there any way that can be accomplished in  Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS‌?

Thank you,

--Adam

Hi Adam,

This is not possible in Ops Dashboard at this time. Please submit an enhancement in the ArcGIS Ideas for Ops Dashboard site.

Edit: Can you please also describe your use case/workflow on why you want this functionality?

 

Hope this helps,

Yes.

Two reasons:

  • The map is a small part of this dashboard, displaying a simple statewide, county-based choropleth map.  Selection of a county generates the population of different statistics in many other elements.  Not allowing the map to move allows me to NOT have to think about instruction to the user if they pan or zoom by mistake.  It might seem very petty, but I have many people who need to have instructions for everything.  It must be as simple as I can make it and still have the functionality that is required.  There is no need to pan or zoom, so why enable it?
  • The map contains many complex, overlapping polygons that require a lot of time to load.  Once loaded, they are cached.  If the map pans or zooms, the map must load again.  In its default extent, the user is able to see the results of removing various polygons at a statewide level, and no map movement is required.  I need this for a working group that is studying various combinations of RF footprints in a statewide, multiband, P25 land mobile radio system to create coverage classes.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
