Instant Apps home

  • The Instant Apps home page includes a new Choose map option that allows you to choose or change the preselected map or scene to preview apps before creating them.
  • The Suggestions panel, which helps you choose an app, appears by default on the Create tab. Use the new Send us feedback option to let the product team know if the suggestions meet your expectations.
  • The Featured tab now includes an article that focuses on a specific app template with additional information and examples. In the side panel, you can access Instant Apps blog articles to learn about more apps and see examples of what's new.


  • The configuration window has new onboarding messages that appear when you first open it. You can also open the new Get started panel to see these messages again or to learn about additional options.
  • New theme settings are available in the majority of the templates. You can choose from preset themes to style the app, plus options to change the font and color scheme and add a logo to the header.
  • When you turn on the social sharing setting, the link now includes parameters that preserve the current appearance of an app, such as the map extent, visible layers, and selected features, so users can share what they see.
  • Web analytics options now include Adobe Analytics to track app usage.


  • Category Gallery—The item card display settings have a new option to open web maps in Map Viewer when users click the thumbnail in the gallery.
  • Chart Viewer—Support has been added for pie charts. Chart panels now include the zoom and full extent buttons.
  • Countdown—Provide a play button for app users to cycle through all countdown and leaderboard lists without requiring additional interaction.
  • Exhibit—Support has been added for web scenes and importing time-enabled bookmarks to create slides. Slide notes now increase in height for longer content and app users can use the new Toggle note button in the control panel to hide the slide note. New slide transition types have been added for panning the map or flying in the scene to the next location.
  • Media Map—Include a tool for app users to magnify a portion of the map.
  • Nearby and Zone Lookup—Provide the option for app users to export results to CSV. When you opt to include related records in the results, it's now highlighted and in the map extent.
  • Portfolio—For the accordion layout, choose a larger size for the panel to allow more space for detailed descriptions. A new mobile design ensures that the app content displays well on a mobile device.
  • Sidebar—Include measurement tools so app users can measure distance and area in the map. The Layer list setting has new options to include buttons for each layer to show its legend, open its attribute table, and zoom to its extent.
