Details for a new mission

On the Create New Mission panel, you can include information to define the details about the new mission. The only required field when creating a mission is Mission Name. Everything you include at creation can be edited later on the Mission Details page. Descriptions of the options are below.

  • Mission Name—The name of the mission. A mission name is determined by the organization and organizational requirements but should be easily distinguishable from other missions, based on those requirements.
  • Summary—A brief description of the mission. The summary appears on the View Missions tab and on the Overview tab in Mission Details. page.

Additional detail options

Below these options is the Additional Details drop-down menu with the following options:

  • Description—Additional information relevant to the mission, similar to the summary. It does not appear on the View Missions tab; it appears on the ArcGIS Mission Manager Overview tab and the ArcGIS Mission Responder Mission Details page.
  • Tags—Relevant tags that help with searches can be added here.
  • Terms of Use—Restrictions, disclaimers, limitations, or conditions for use can be added here, based on organizational requirements.

This is not a comprehensive list of all the tools and options on the Mission Details page, and everything included at creation can be edited later.

Once you add a title, choose your basemap from the map panel. Alternatively, if the map is acceptable with its default basemap and zoom extent, click Create New Mission.
