What's new

The 11.2 release of ArcGIS Dashboards includes enhancements, bug fixes, and performance improvements. Highlights of the release are listed below.

Map layer data sources

Elements that have their data sources based on a map layer are no longer dependent on the map element. Deleting the map element whose data source is powering other elements does not delete those elements.


The ArcGIS Arcade expression editor has been updated. The new editor features a dynamic expression writing experience with autopopulated code suggestions, a robust function search, and flags for unassigned variables and expression errors. You can use the new editor where you would use advanced formatting or data expressions.

The Dashboard Formatting profile for Arcade has been split into separate profiles for each element that supports advanced formatting. The indicator element now uses the Dashboard Indicator Formatting profile, the list element now uses the Dashboard List Formatting profile, and the table element now uses the Dashboard Table Formatting profile.

Dashboard views

You can now configure a single dashboard to have two views, a desktop view and a mobile view. Each view is optimized for viewing on either a desktop or mobile devices. When a dashboard is opened, the optimized view loads. You can create a mobile view of your dashboard that includes the same elements as your desktop view, or new elements with different configurations. A dashboard's mobile view is meant to complement the desktop view to provide information to users on the go.

Map element

Two new map options have been added for the map element. The Find my location option zooms and centers the map to the approximate location of the user's device. The Compass option shows the maps rotational angle and allows users to reorient the map to point north.

Map selection

Making a selection on a map's operational layer to initiate layer actions has been improved, allowing users to select features without the need for selection tools. When layer actions are configured, clicking features on the map now automatically initiates the actions. Optionally, you can also allow users to select multiple features using additional selection tools.

Data download

Dashboard users are no longer required to sign in to download source data from an element.


Dashboard accessibility has been improved, including better and more consistent keyboard navigation, focus management, and improvements to screen reader support. Additionally, you can now configure the accessible name for each element on your dashboard. The accessible name is the name read aloud when using a screen reader.
