ArcGIS Dashboards on ArcGIS Enterprise - The Journey to 11.2

Let’s kick things off with a detailed view of what’s new in ArcGIS Dashboards on ArcGIS Enterprise 11.2 and then look at some of the big updates from some of the other recent releases of ArcGIS Dashboards on ArcGIS Enterprise.


Mobile Dashboard Views

ArcGIS Dashboards on ArcGIS Enterprise 11.2 introduces an additional mobile dashboard view. Now you can create a single dashboard with both a desktop and a mobile view. The views are optimized for the screen size of the device used, which helps ensure an optimal user experience when viewing a dashboard.

Map Selection

We have streamlined the map selection process. Select features more intuitively by clicking directly on the features. Configure layer actions, so when dashboard users click features on the map, it will automatically initiate actions. We’ve also expanded our set of selection tools, to allow users to select multiple features at once.


Accessibility has been improved with better keyboard navigation, improved screen reader support, and focus management. We have also introduced the ability to configure the accessible name for each element on your dashboard, this is what is read aloud when using a screen reader.

Data Download

Dashboard creators can now enable the download of source data from a dashboard element without requiring a log in.

Map Layer Data Sources

Elements with data sources based on a map layer are no longer affected when you delete that map element.


The ArcGIS Arcade expression editor updates save you time by featuring autopopulated code suggestions, a robust function search, and flags for errors. We have delineated the advanced formatting of dashboard elements into the different element profiles: list, table, and indicator specific profiles.

Map Element

We’ve added the Find my location and Compass options for the map element.
