What's new

The January 2020 release of ArcGIS Insights includes support for feature layers and database tables with domains and subtypes defined, data exports from the data pane, new field calculations for date/time fields, and updated workbook designs.


Insights in ArcGIS Enterprise 2020.1 is compatible with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7.1 and 10.8. For more information on version compatibility, see Compatibility with ArcGIS Enterprise.

Domains and subtypes

Domains and subtypes are applied to fields to constrain and define the values that can be added to the field. Domains and subtypes are important for maintaining data integrity during data collection.

Coded value domains and subtypes can now be viewed in Insights when they are applied to your feature layers or feature classes.

Export data

Datasets can now be exported from the data pane. Compatible datasets can be exported as shapefiles, CSVs, or GeoJSON files. Exporting your data can be useful for collaboration with colleagues, or for using your data in other products, such as ArcGIS Pro or Microsoft Excel.

Exporting datasets from the Datasets tab on the home page is also still available.

ArcGIS Insights desktop

Insights desktop is an ArcGIS Insights deployment available on macOS and Windows computers.

Connections can now be created from Insights desktop to ArcGIS Online and multiple ArcGIS Enterprise accounts. Every Insights desktop deployment must have one primary ArcGIS connection, and can have unlimited data-only connections.

Enterprise logins are now supported in Insights desktop. Enterprise logins allow you to sign in to an ArcGIS Enterprise account that has been secured with portal authentication.

Folders can now be created in Insights desktop. Folders are useful for organizing your content (for example, creating a folder for each project you work on).

User settings are now available in Insights desktop. Settings include the source of your help documentation, log level, and default tab on the home page.

Field calculations

New field calculations are available for date/time fields. TIME() and TIMEDIF() can be used with date/time fields that include time components. For more information, see Field calculations.

Date/time subfields

You can now collapse date/time subfields in the data pane. Collapsing your date/time subfields gives you more space in the data pane to view your other datasets and fields.


Enhancements have been made to improve the design and user experience in Insights workbooks.

Summary tables

Summary tables have been redesigned to allow the statistics in the header to be hidden, and make it easier to reorder fields.

Workbook design

The page design within a workbook has been updated, including some new button designs and placements. The redesign simplifies the page layout and allows more space to do your analysis.
