Share a layer to ArcGIS

Sharing your ArcGIS Maps for Office layers to ArcGIS is a quick and easy way to share information with others in your organization or in the ArcGIS public community. You can share individual layers or the entire map.

When you share a layer, a hosted feature service is created on ArcGIS, where you can do more work on it.

  1. Sign in to ArcGIS if you are not already signed in.
  2. In the Contents pane, click the layer you want to share.
  3. On the ArcGIS Maps ribbon, click Share map.
  4. Specify a title, tags, and a description for the layer and choose whether to share it with everyone (public), your organization, or any groups to which you belong.
  5. Press Share.
