October 2021

Tracks continues to grow and improve. We know how crucial it is to daily operations for fleets. This month, we've added lots of new functionality around track points: finding the closest track point on the map, one-click view of a track point on the map from the track points list, and sorting columns to better view your track point data. We also warn users when they select an extremely large dataset that may take awhile to run.

Check below for the full notes or read the blog for an overview.

Learn how to update your server.

New

Tracks

  • When viewing a trip on the map, click anywhere on the trip to show the closest track point to that location.
  • Click on a track point in the track points table to show it on the map.
  • It’s now possible to sort the columns in the track point list.
  • Show confirm dialog when selecting a large dataset in the Tracks panel. This can help prevent you selecting a dataset that will take a long time to run.

  • ArcGIS Map can now handle maps hosted via enterprise Web Adaptor Portal URL:s.
