What's new

Location tracking is now available as an organization-wide capability on ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise, allowing you to record where users are and where they have been. The location tracking layer stores tracked locations as point features. The tracks are secure within the location tracking layer: users only see their tracks, with additional permissions required to view the tracks of others. With permission, users can see last known locations and perform analysis on the tracks.

Tracker for ArcGIS is a new product that uses the location tracking layer in two new apps: the Tracker for ArcGIS mobile app and the Track Viewer web app. The Tracker mobile app is optimized for tracking locations in the background, minimizing the impact on device battery. The mobile app records tracks independent of a data connection and provides mobile users control of when they are and aren't tracked. The Track Viewer web app allows administrators to create track views, defining who is tracked and who can view those tracks. Authorized users can use the Track Viewer web app to view tracks.
