What's new

The ArcGIS Experience Builder update includes new widgets, new templates, support for output data sources from widgets and new data actions, and more widget settings and layout enhancements. Some of the highlights are listed below.

  • Data sources—When setting a data source throughout your app, you can now search sublayers, choose a selected features view, or use output data generated by Query and Chart widgets.
  • Data actions—Use the new data actions settings to provide an action menu in supported widgets, so end users can process data at runtime, such as exporting to a file or showing records in a target widget.
  • Layout—You can now set an aspect ratio when using either the pixel or percent unit.
  • Outline—When you point to a widget in the outline, it's highlighted on the canvas.
  • Pages—In scrolling pages, you can set links on widgets to scroll to a particular block on the page or return to the top of the page.
  • Windows—You can customize a window's position, size, and layout for different screen sizes.
  • Templates and themes—More app and page templates were added to visualize data using a narrative tour and single- or multipage layouts for monitoring status.


Advanced snap lines now appear in the canvas to help align and precisely position widgets in a fullscreen page, window, and fixed panel or sidebar layout. Widget configuration includes several usability improvements. For example, some settings such as the Action tab and auto layout options only appear now for applicable widgets and layouts. Other improvements include the following new and updated widgets:

  • Chart widget (new)—Visualize quantitative attributes from an operational layer to reveal potential patterns or trends.
  • Coordinate Conversion widget (new)—Convert coordinates between coordinate systems using multiple notation formats.
  • Query widget (new)—Retrieve information from a data source by running an attribute or spatial filter query. Use the new Records Created trigger to add actions, such as automatically displaying query results on a map and zooming to the features.
  • Embed widget—Use a single URL editor to form dynamic URLs from connected data attributes or app URL parameters, or add static URLs directly.
  • Feature Info widget—The Feature Info widget now supports scene layers.
  • Fly Controller widget—You can configure a new fly mode to plan routes by adding multiple points and paths to fly through.
  • List widget—You can now customize the size of list items for different screen sizes. Also, when users search for items in a list, the suggested results now display one entry per unique value found.
  • Map widget—Use new quality options for web scenes to balance the visual effect and loading efficiency.
  • Survey widget—When selecting existing surveys, you can select a draft survey from the list and organization administrators can select surveys owned by other members.
  • Table widget—The Table widget supports attribute editing by checking data capabilities and user credentials. Selection modes have also been added so you can allow users to select single or multiple records in the table. When configuring fields for the sheet, you can now clear the selection and drag selected fields to reorder them. Tables with search enabled now show search suggestions when users type in the search box.
  • Text widget—The Text widget has a new font size unit for vw (view width). You can now set a link for the entire widget instead of just specific words.
