Add materials

The Materials tab is where mission owners and leads can provide supporting resources or information to mission members for use during the mission. These materials can be documents, images, web mapping applications, dashboards, or other resources that might be useful to mission members. ArcGIS Survey123 forms can also be included as part of a mission's materials.

The following are supported file types for materials:

  • .pdf
  • .doc
  • .docx
  • .xls
  • .xlsx
  • .ppt
  • .pptx
  • .csv
  • .jpeg
  • .jpg
  • .png
  • .tif
  • .tiff

Add materials

Materials can added by uploading new files or using files from your organization's portal, as well as providing links to web mapping applications, Survey123 forms, and dashboards.

Upload materials

Materials can be uploaded to the mission by following the steps below.:

  1. Click View Missions.
  2. Click Mission Details on your mission.
  3. Click the Materials tab.
  4. Click Upload.

    A dialog box appears, prompting you to select the file you want to upload.

  5. Click or drag the file to upload.
  6. Optionally, retitle the file.
  7. Click Upload.

    A notification appears at the bottom of the app, confirming that your file was successfully uploaded and now appears in the list of available content.

The file is uploaded to your organization's portal as a new item and can be used in other missions.

Add materials from My Content or My Organization

A mission owner or administrator can use existing files from their content or their organization's content. This includes links to web mapping applications and dashboards. To add materials from My Content or My Organization, complete the following steps:

  1. Click View Missions.
  2. Click Mission Details on your mission.
  3. Click the Materials tab.
  4. Locate the file.
  5. Click Add.

    A notification appears confirming your file successfully added, and it appears in the list of available content.

Add an ArcGIS Survey123 form

If you have a ArcGIS Survey123 form available and permissions to access it, it will appear in the My Content or My Organization panel. However, the process to add it to the mission is slightly different than adding other materials, and is detailed below.

  1. Click View Missions.
  2. Click Mission Details on your mission.
  3. Click the Materials tab.
  4. Select either My Content or My Organization.
  5. Locate the survey and click Add.

    A dialog appears, asking if you want to add the selected survey as layers to the mission map.

  6. Click the checkboxes for the surveys you want to add to the mission map.
  7. Click Continue.

    The survey becomes accessible in the mission. Any of the surveys that you selected in step six become visible on the mission map.

Remove files from the Materials tab

Removing files allows you to clear unnecessary or out-of-date materials from your mission. To remove files, complete the following steps:

  1. Select the files you want to remove in the Additional Materials table or click Select All to choose all files available. The number of files selected appears above the table.
  2. Click Remove.

    A notification appears at the bottom of the app, confirming your file was successfully deleted. Additionally, before clicking Remove, you can click Clear Selection if you decide not to remove files.
