All ArcGIS Online users are invited to try a public beta of the next version of ArcGIS Dashboards, planned to be available in April. This beta will give users an opportunity to test drive some of the exciting new enhancements, including:
- Improved Usability: A number of user experience improvements include new and improved summary statistics for percentile and count, as well as support for Hex, RGB, and HSL formats for color input.
- Improved Performance: The ability to draw more features on the map and overall improved map performance.
- Support for Arcade: Arcade is a portable, lightweight, and secure expression language written for use in the ArcGIS platform. It can perform mathematical calculations, manipulate text, and evaluate logical statements. The ArcGIS Dashboards Beta will fully leverage all map authoring customizations using Arcade. In addition, the beta exposes an interface for users to compose Arcade expressions directly into ArcGIS Dashboards for both list and indicator elements, enabling customization of how data points are rendered.
Once available, users can access the ArcGIS Dashboards Beta through the ArcGIS Online app launcher – just look for the familiar ArcGIS Dashboards icon labeled “BETA”. The beta release is only available to ArcGIS Online organizations. Once the beta moves to general availability, the new ArcGIS Dashboards will be available in the subsequent version of ArcGIS Enterprise.
Help and FAQ documentation for the beta will be available through an ArcGIS Dashboards Beta GeoNet community. Discussion and feedback will be encouraged.
Stay tuned for additional announcements on the ArcGIS Dashboards Beta. We look forward to your participation!
