What’s New in Operations Dashboard (December 2017)

At-a-glance decision making with Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS

We are very excited to announce that Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS has moved out of beta and is now released! It is included with your ArcGIS Online subscription and will be available with the ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6 release in January.

Operations Dashboard offers a comprehensive and engaging view of your data, to provide key insights for at-a-glance decision making. It helps you monitor people, services, assets or events by bringing together multiple visualizations that work together on a single screen and are responsive to data that updates in real-time.

Dashboards are composed of elements, such as maps, lists, charts, gauges, and indicators that bring forward key performance indicators and draw your attention to where it’s needed.

Fully Integrated with ArcGIS, leverage your data and maps to author stunning dashboards using a web browser and share them across your organization or with the public so that everyone shares a common view.

Try It Live
The best way to experience Operations Dashboard is to use it. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be providing a number of Dashboards for you to try. Here are a few to get started with:

How it works
Dashboards are items within your organization. You can create them from your content view, when sharing a map, or by launching the Operations Dashboard by clicking the Apps button in the header of your ArcGIS site.

Choose from a rich library of visual elements and configure your visualization to present your data your way.

Drag, group, stack, and resize elements to set the layout how you need it.

Use the action framework to control the behavior of elements and build interactions that let users derive key performance indicators using selectors.

Finally, test and share the amazing Dashboards and related items with your users.

Operation Views
If you are currently using Operation Views within your organization, they will continue to work and be supported. We encourage you to create new Dashboard items that replace your Operation Views and take advantage of all of the new functionality that is now available within your web browser.

    Any way we can view related tables in the map pane?

    Are you going to be able to install on top of Enterprise 10.5. There are issues with syncing at 10.5.1 and 10.6 which make upgrading impossible

    • Jeff Shaner says:

      If you want to use an ArcGIS Enterprise identity, we will require that you upgrade to version 10.6. We have introduced a new Dashboard item type that requires the upgrade. If at all a possibility, you can use an ArcGIS Online identity to store the Dashboard item but have the content within the Dashboard come from your ArcGIS Enterprise 10.5 instance.

    Can 10.4 uses Operations Dashboard to its full capacity.

    One thing that have not been dealt with is been able to change your WebMap source by configuring it to the new month from the previous month when you are creating monthly dashboard.

    • Jeff Shaner says:

      Not sure on your specific requirements here. However please check out the new functionality of working with relative dates (both in filters and in selectors).

    WHAT is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?

  6. hui.wei says:

    At 10.6, Dashboard is a built in with Portal or it is a separate install as Insights.
    Also, in Portal web application builder (Builder), there is a Dashboard template. How do I relate each other? Can you tell the difference on the technology side or in another words, are they both built on top of ArcGIS JavaScript API and other framework?

    Is there functionality to allow export of features visible in the extent of the map? If not, is this functionality coming?

    How can we use it on s mobile environment?

  9. jschuckert_interwestgis says:

    Is it possible to filter data in your map by date based off a date field using the header element? For example, I have the header configured to allow users to select one of several date options which in turn filters data on graphs and charts, however from what I can tell I can not also apply that filter to the data on the map. If that is true, is that a possible future enhancement? Under “Actions” for the date selector within the header config I see all my elements besides my map. As an alternative I could have stacked map cards for users to toggle between, although the filter from header would be more intuitive.
