Configure and display pop-ups

Pop-ups contain descriptive information about the features in each layer in the map. A pop-up displays a header (title) and attribute information based on the columns and rows in your data. Pop-ups display when you choose a feature on the map. You can change the way information is presented in the pop-up by changing the header and specifying the fields to display.

Some layers from ArcGIS do not support configuring pop-ups. In these instances, the pop-up option will not be available on the layer's context menu.

  1. Press the Show map contents button to display the Contents pane.
  2. On the Contents pane, press the arrow to the right of the layer for which you want to configure pop-ups.
  3. Press the On/Off selector beside Pop-ups to turn on pop-up display.

    The Configure pop-ups button appears beside the On/Off selector.

  4. Press the Configure pop-ups button.
  5. From the Header menu, choose the field you want to display as the header (title) of the pop-up.
  6. Below the Header menu, each field in your data is listed. Check or uncheck the check box beside each field to specify the information that you want to display in the pop-up.
  7. Press OK when finished.

    When you choose a feature on the map, the newly configured pop-up displays. Press the Zoom to button on the pop-up to zoom to the selected feature.

    You can press the Infographics button at the bottom-right of the pop-up to see graphical information about the areas around your feature. Infographics are visualizations that provide rich contextual information about the areas surrounding the features in your map. For more information, see Infographics.

    Press the Previous and Next arrows on the pop-up to scroll through available features for the clicked area, line, or point. The feature counter in the upper left alerts you to the number of features available for viewing.

    The Previous and Next arrows, along with the feature counter, appear on a pop-up when a map contains more than one layer because additional data was added from ArcGIS or SAP Dashboards. When you click a feature on a multi-layered map, the arrows allow you to scroll through features from each layer that intersect with the feature you clicked.


    The Attributes and Infographics options on pop-ups are persistent, meaning that the last selected button determines what is displayed in subsequent pop-ups. For example, if you view Infographics in a pop-up and then close the pop-up, all other pop-ups will automatically display infographics for selected features. Because viewing infographics consumes ArcGIS service credits, it is good practice to revert to the Attributes display before closing the pop-up.
