What's new

The June 2019 release includes bug fixes and improvements to stability and security. The team is always improving Operations Dashboard to provide new features, improved speed, and better usability. As features are progressively added, specific highlights for each update are listed below.


The legacy Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS Windows app was moved to a retired state on January 1, 2019. It has been replaced with the Operations Dashboard web app. The legacy app created operation view items. The web app creates dashboard items. Starting with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7 and the March 2019 update of ArcGIS Online, you can no longer create or edit operation views. Existing operation views will be marked as deprecated and will be available as read-only items. At the next major release of ArcGIS Enterprise after 10.7, operation views will no longer be accessible.

Previous releases

March 2019

  • Three new languages are now supported: Ukrainian, Arabic, and Hebrew. If your locale is set to one of these languages, dashboards will honor this setting.
  • Category Selectors, when configured to allow multiple selections, can now include a None option. This allows users to quickly unselect many items at once.
  • More formatting options are now available when elements show No Data or No Value.
  • New icons are available for indicator and header elements.

December 2018

The December 2018 update introduces more flexibility in dashboard configuration through URL parameters. Designed to trigger actions at run time, the following parameter types are available:

  • Category
  • Numeric
  • Date
  • Feature
  • Geometry

September 2018

  • A new map setting to control the point zoom scale
  • Several chart improvements
  • More control over numerical formatting in pie chart legend, label, and hover text
  • Grouped value serial charts now have a configurable maximum number of categories
  • A new rotation setting for serial chart axis titles
  • Improved author experience for category selectors
  • New option to control the list selection color
  • Dashboards do a better job respecting all actions configured by the author when the dashboard loads

    Add the None option as the default selection to prevent this.

June 2018

  • Two new actions are available when configuring an interactive dashboard: Show Pop-up and Follow Feature.
  • A new dashboard settings button on the navigation bar allows authors to do the following:
    • Change colors for the background, borders, elements, tabs, and selections.
    • Change the unit prefixes used by the various dashboard elements.
    • Control whether dashboard elements can be resized by end users at run time.
  • Many new icons are available for indicator and header elements.
  • The label and legend text size for pie charts are now configurable.
  • Serial charts now support logarithmic scaling on the value axis.
  • More control over whether titles and descriptions are displayed when elements show no data.
  • Dashboards can now be viewed on smartphones.

    Authors should take care to design dashboards that will work well in a reduced form factor. Limiting the number of elements displayed, judicious use of text, and taking advantage of a dashboard's ability to group and stack elements are all key considerations.

  • Serial charts and pie charts can now be the source of dashboard actions.
  • The new embedded content element allows you to embed documents, images, video, or other web content into your dashboard.
