What's new

The September 2021 update for ArcGIS Experience Builder includes the new features, widgets, and enhancements listed below.

  • Builder—Create an experience with an auto-populated map directly from Map Viewer or a map or scene item page.
  • Data source—The layer order in an experience now honors the layer order saved in the map or scene.
  • Templates—Provides two new default templates that use Fly Controller widgets in a fullscreen (Voyage) and scrolling page (Vacation), plus corresponding public app templates to demonstrate each with sample data.
  • Windows—Provides two new templates to deliver additional guidance, information, or data in a window.
  • Screen groups—Supports moving the entire screen group to the pending list for custom layouts. Provides a blank screen template without a panel.
  • Performance—Improves the performance of loading and searching data sources when adding data.


  • Edit (beta) widget (new)—Allows creating, updating, or deleting features in data sources or map widgets. Editing directly in a map widget allows modifying attributes and geometry.
  • Oriented Imagery widget (new)—Allows interacting with and visualizing imagery that is taken from any angle—including oblique, street-side, inspection, and 360-degree images—in a 2D map or 3D scene.
  • Search widget (new)—Placed anywhere on the map or page, use this widget configured with specific layers and locators so users can find features, records, or locations. You can define how and where to display search results in your app.
  • Chart widget—Supports line charts, area charts, and four different notations for displaying numerical values, including standard, compact, scientific, and engineering.
  • Filter widget—Allows zooming and panning to features on the map after applying the filter.
  • List widget—Changing the Regular state layout now automatically updates the Selected and Hover states to match. Allows excluding the Last update label that indicates when the data was refreshed in the app.
  • Query widget—Supports querying data sources based on the geometry of selected features. You can specify spatial relationship rules and end users can set a buffer distance at runtime. Allows you to customize results, such as which fields to display and meaningful names based on a custom expression from the data.
  • Survey widget—You can now allow users to view and edit survey responses.
  • Table widget—Supports scene layers with an associated feature layer and improves responsive display of tabs on mobile devices or when there's a lot of data. When allow editing is set, you can now specify which fields are editable.
  • Text widget—Allows you to customize the content and style of the placeholder text when editing a template.
  • Widget Controller—You can now turn off tooltips to avoid duplicating tool labels. You can also move and remove widgets by default.
