Since releasing the free Mapfolio application to the ArcGIS Marketplace several years ago, we’ve noticed a massive uptake in usage of ArcGIS.com by users. This is exactly the reason why the application was created! Mapfolio is perfect for ArcGIS Online administrators who need an easier way for their users to find the organization’s web applications and content.
Create a custom homepage for your ArcGIS Online organization
Not everyone is a GIS Pro needing access to “everything” within ArcGIS Online. To some, all the content can be overwhelming when all they really need is a map. Once configured, Mapfolio can filter your organization’s content by using the ArcGIS Online tagging system, giving your users a personalized landing page they feel comfortable with. Users log in to ArcGIS Online through an easy to use application and have immediate access to their groups, web applications, and content anywhere and on any device.
Your Information Just Two Clicks Away
This video demonstrates the use of Mapfolio ArcGIS℠ Online, a tool for information consumers, like the director of an international airport. For example, using a shortcut from the desktop, the airport director uses Mapfolio to access only the most relevant information from his ArcGIS online account. Best of all, there is rarely ever a need to click more than rarely is there ever a need to click more than twice to get to any of the information he needs.
Some additional, handy things you can do with Mapfolio include:
- Bring groups and favorites to the front
- Brings in only web apps that are needed
- Skin it to look exactly the way you want!
- Tag and view only the maps and apps that are needed and important to you
Quickly Engage with the Platform – get in and get out!
Mapfolio is available to users of ArcGIS Online in several license options. These including the free personal use option, an annual license, or portal version. See more info about Mapfolio for ArcGIS – because not everyone needs access to every item and functionality within your ArcGIS Online account (as seen in this video).
