ArcGIS for Microsoft 365

What's new in ArcGIS for Microsoft 365 (June 2023)

ArcGIS for Microsoft 365 adds the spatial advantage to your business productivity solutions. Leverage your business data by delivering new insights using ArcGIS for Excel. Search for documents and map your lists using ArcGIS for SharePoint. Add location intelligence to your reports using ArcGIS for Power BI. Discover, view, and share content collaboratively. Use ArcGIS Connectors for Power Automate to bring spatial and data management capabilities to your workflows.

ArcGIS for Microsoft 365 is updated regularly with new features, enhancements, bug fixes, and UI improvements. In June 2023, here’s what’s new:

New documentation site

Previously, all documentation for the components of ArcGIS for Microsoft 365 were on separate sites dedicated to ArcGIS for Excel, ArcGIS for SharePoint, ArcGIS for Power BI, and ArcGIS for Teams. Now, all reference help is in one place on the new ArcGIS for Microsoft 365 documentation site.  This site also includes documentation for ArcGIS Connectors for Power Automate, a low code/no code solution to enhance your Microsoft and ArcGIS workflows.

Function Builder

Using formulas in Microsoft Excel is one of the most efficient ways to work with your Excel data. ArcGIS for Excel includes similar functions that you can access from the Function Builder tool on the toolbar.

Function Builder now includes drop-down menus for parameters, such as spatial_reference and data_collections, to make constructing Excel functions even easier. Learn more in the ArcGIS for Excel Function Builder—Access custom functions from ArcGIS toolbar Esri Community blog article.
