Enabling New Beta Search in ArcGIS Hub

ArcGIS Hub, a solution for sharing data through sites and connecting with your community, continues to evolve with recent updates to its site’s search capabilities. These improvements now make it easier for you to search for a greater variety of data that’s more frequently updated. With ArcGIS Hub’s site capabilities, you also have other useful features including several standard and beta features that improve the functionality of your site. An administrator can review and select which of these features they want enabled under Capabilities.

The new search capability now expands your reach to all data content types supported in ArcGIS Online, giving you and your sites’ users more robust search results, as well as facilitating easier data management. Improvements to this feature include:
