Set map options for apps

ArcGIS includes ready-to-use apps that you can use to view maps in web browsers, mobile devices, and desktop map viewers. Some of these apps have configurable capabilities that you can show or hide based on your map. These capabilities include routing, measuring, changing the basemap, tracking, finding places and addresses, and finding features within a layer. As the map author, you set these as application properties on the item page of your map.

  1. Create and save a map in Map Viewer.

    For Collector for ArcGIS, the map needs to include at least one editable feature layer.

  2. From the My Content tab of the content page, click the name of your map to view its item page.
  3. Click the Settings tab and scroll down to the Application Settings section under Web Map Settings.
  4. Select the settings to enable.

    The ArcGIS apps support some, but not all, of these settings. See the descriptions below for more information.

  5. Click Save to update your map with the enabled settings.
