Pop-ups provide a quick overview of a single feature on a map or an aspect of a chart, such as a bar or point. To see a pop-up on a map, hover over a point, line, or area. To see a pop-up on a chart, hover over a point, bar, or slice.

Display a field

Map pop-ups display information about the data on your map. By default, the map pop-ups display values from the first string field in the dataset. If there are no string fields, the first number field is used. The field displayed in the pop-ups can be changed using the Display field button. The Display field button is located in the data pane next to the Location field for spatial datasets.

Choose a display field.


The Display field button is unavailable for datasets created from database connections that have been joined or aggregated. Database connections are available in Insights in ArcGIS Enterprise and Insights desktop.

If a pop-up is styled by a field other than the Location field, the pop-ups will include information from both the Style by field and the Display field setting.
