What's new

The ArcGIS Instant Apps update includes the new features, templates, and enhancements listed below.

  • You can now access Instant Apps from the Create app menu when creating apps directly from Map Viewer, the content page, and map item pages. Choose an app template by searching app capabilities. You can preview the apps with your map and publish instantly using default settings.
  • Use the new My Apps tab to manage the apps you've created and create apps based on the template or settings used by your existing apps.


  • Portfolio is a new template that allows you to showcase a set of related ArcGIS content and files in a single app with a suite of tools, including autoplay, navigation, and the ability to set a common starting location in the maps. You can add a cover page and social sharing tools, and include additional content such as image and PDF files and URLs to videos on the web.
  • Nearby now allows you to provide filters to narrow search results based on values associated with the feature. It also includes a new search method to find results by map extent and users can share individual results by copying a link that opens the app to the current map extent with the selected feature details shown in the results panel. The intro panel has been updated, including an option to disable it and there's a new option to add a cover page.
