This is an archive related to a previous version of Esri Maps for SharePoint. If you need the current version go to http://doc.arcgis.com/en/maps-for-sharepoint/.
SharePoint lists containing address data need to be spatially enabled (geocoded) before they can be added to one of the Esri Maps Web Parts (both the ArcGIS Map Web Part and the Esri Maps Web Part). You can spatially enable lists containing Addresses, U.S. Cities, U.S States, U.S. ZIP codes, world cities, and countries using the Esri Maps Locate workflow. When spatially enabling a list containing addresses, ArcGIS geocoding credits are consumed. No credits are consumed for spatially enabling lists containing the other types of place name data listed.
The Esri Maps Locate workflow requires a connection to the ArcGIS platform, either ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS. By default, the Esri Maps Locate workflow connects to http://www.arcgis.com but you can change the connection path by editing the ArcGISConnection list item in the Esri Maps Configuration Settings list.
The two check boxes at the bottom of the page, Start this workflow when a new item is created and Start this workflow when an item is changed, allow you to have the location of items automatically updated when changes are made to existing items or new items are added to the list.
If you are connected to a Portal for ArcGIS instance, the location choices you see may be different from those shown above. See Configure Portal to geocode addresses for information on configuring locators.
If you are connected to Portal for ArcGIS and do not see these columns appear, set the geocoding service on the portal to be accessible by everyone.
If the Esri Maps Locate workflow does not complete successfully, you'll see Canceled in the workflow field in the list. Click Canceled for more information. Also, see Frequently asked questions for more information.
Once the Esri Maps Locate workflow successfully completes, the list is ready to be added to the map.
