What’s new in ArcGIS Companion 1.4 (December 2018)

ArcGIS Companion v1.4 just went out. We have added several exciting new features and improvements to the app. Here are the highlights of the release:

Administrators can now manage and edit member user types (formerly member levels)

In this release, we added the ability for organization Administrators to manage and edit member user type, including their own.

To edit a member’s user type, go to the Organization page, tap the Members tab, and select a member to view their profile. The following screenshots illustrate updating a member’s user type from Creator to Field Worker. Notice that this process also automatically changed the role from Publisher to Viewer because the role must be compatible with the assigned user type.

Filters are now available for Content

In this release, we have added filters to improve browsing content. You can choose to sort the list and filter items based on sharing and content status. This can be done for items in My content, My organization, and My favorites. It also remembers the last used Sort order.

To filter content, go to the Content page and tap the filter icon. The following screenshot illustrates applying filters to show organization content that’s only shared with organization members and to sort the filtered list by view count.

Enhanced filters are available for Groups

Similar to content filters, the group filters now provide a better experience to quickly filter groups based on ownership, who can view the group, and pending membership requests. The filter and sort options are available with My groups and Organization groups.

To filter groups, go to the Group page and tap the filter icon. The following screenshot illustrates applying filters to show organization groups that can only be viewed by organization members and to sort the filtered list by title.

Enhanced filters are available for Members

Similar to content filters, the member filters now provide a better experience to quickly filter members based on organization role and user type.

To filter members, go to the Organization page, tap the Members tab, and tap the filter icon. The following screenshot illustrates applying filters to show only members in the organization who are assigned the Publisher role and Creator user type and to sort the filtered list by the date members last signed in to the organization.
