Install ArcGIS for SharePoint

You must be a SharePoint site administrator to install and configure the add-in. There are many ways a SharePoint organization can be administered, and your installation experience may differ slightly from the procedures outlined here. Contact your SharePoint administrator for details about your organization, or refer to the Microsoft SharePoint documentation.

ArcGIS for SharePoint contains the new ArcGIS Maps add-in, completely redesigned and developed to take advantage of the modern pages in SharePoint. Some of the functionality you're accustomed to using in ArcGIS Maps will be available with ArcGIS Maps in upcoming releases. Other components, including the ArcGIS Maps Locate workflow and ArcGIS Search, are still available in the SharePoint classic experience.

After you install the app, you must configure it before it can be used.

Install on a SharePoint site

Note:

SharePoint provides two deployment scopes for SharePoint add-ins:

  • Web scope—Install the add-in on a per-site basis.
  • Tenant scope—Install multiple add-ins in batch mode.

ArcGIS for SharePoint for the Modern environment can only be installed using the tenant deployment scope. For more information about deployment scopes, see Tenancies and deployment scopes for SharePoint Add-ins.

To add the ArcGIS Maps app to a SharePoint site, do the following:

  1. From your site's Site Contents page, click add an app.

    The Your apps page appears, showing the ArcGIS Maps app under Apps you can add.

  2. Click the ArcGIS Maps tile.
  3. Alternatively, from the Quick Launch menu, click SharePoint Store.
  4. In the SharePoint store, search for ArcGIS.

    The search results page shows the ArcGIS Maps tile.

  5. Click the ArcGIS Maps tile.

    The ArcGIS Maps app details page appears.

  6. Click Add it.
  7. On the Trust message that appears, click Trust It.

    The app is now listed in Site Contents of the specified site.

When the installation is complete, configure ArcGIS for SharePoint.

Synchronize Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Teams

ArcGIS for SharePoint allows you to use ArcGIS mapping, geotagging, and geosearching capabilities seamlessly between Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Teams.

Note:

You must be a SharePoint administrator to install and configure ArcGIS for SharePoint and synchronize it with Microsoft Teams.

Your installation experience may differ slightly from the procedures outlined here; contact your SharePoint administrator for details about your organization or refer to the Microsoft SharePoint documentation.

  1. If you are a SharePoint administrator or have administrator rights, install the ArcGIS for SharePoint package on the tenant's app catalog.
  2. Locate and select Apps for SharePoint in the app catalog.
  3. Select ArcGIS Maps.
  4. On the Files tab, select Sync to Teams to synchronize ArcGIS for SharePoint with Microsoft Teams.
    Sync to Teams on Files tab

    Alert your teams that you added the ArcGIS for SharePoint app and enabled synchronization between Microsoft Teams and SharePoint.

Add the ArcGIS for SharePoint app to a Teams channel

When you create a team in Microsoft Teams, a site collection is created in SharePoint with the same name as the team. Each channel created for that team becomes a folder in SharePoint that is part of its document library.

When you add the ArcGIS for SharePoint app to a Teams channel, users of the channel can seamlessly use ArcGIS mapping, geotagging, and geosearching capabilities in both Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Teams.

To add the ArcGIS for SharePoint app to a team for use in Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Teams, complete the following steps:

  1. In the Microsoft Teams app, create a team and configure its privacy settings.
  2. Add the ArcGIS for SharePoint app:
    1. From Microsoft Teams, click the add button to add a new tab to the team's folder.

      The Add a tab pane appears, showing all available applications you can add to the channel.

    2. Click ArcGIS for SharePoint from the available applications.

      The ArcGIS interface appears, and ArcGIS for SharePoint becomes one of the menu options for the channel.

    You are prompted to sign in to your ArcGIS account.

    Note:

    If you sign in to your ArcGIS account, check Keep me signed in to remain signed in to your ArcGIS account when switching between tabs. Otherwise, you are prompted to sign in to ArcGIS on each tab in the channel.

    From the ArcGIS for SharePoint navigation menu, you can manage the map controls while the map is in edit mode.

You can now perform all standard mapping, geotagging, and geosearching capabilities that are available in ArcGIS for SharePoint in Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Teams.

Caution:

Dynamic data is available only to users of Microsoft SharePoint. It is not available in Microsoft Teams.
