If you have a publicly accessible organization home, you can make it easier for others to discover it by adding it as a public item in ArcGIS Online. While anyone can share an organization’s home page via a link, adding it as a public item enhances the ability for others to discover your organization’s home page using search. Once added as an item, it can also be added to your Hub sites, group-based galleries, and more.
Follow these simple steps to add your organization as an item to facilitate its discovery.
Step 1 – Sign in to your organization, and open your organization’s home page.
Step 2 – Copy your home page URL.
Step 3 – Go to Content and click Add Item, then choose From a URL.
Step 5 -Select Document as the type.
Step 6 – Paste the URL from step 2 in URL:
Step 7 – Add a title and categories or tags as desired.
Step 8 – Click Add Item.
Step 9 – Complete the item summary and description, add a thumbnail, and most importantly share the item publicly.
Your organization home page can now be discovered via search, making it easier for others to find and use. The item can also be added to your hub sites, galleries, and more.
