What’s New in Admin Tools for ArcGIS v 2.1.1

Earlier this month, we released a new version of Admin Tools for ArcGIS. The improvements and advancements we build into our products are driven by user feedback and requests. To see what’s new and improved in Admin Tools for ArcGIS version 2.1.1, read on.

New Features

Filter Content by CSV

Sometimes users will want to interact with a specific subset of users, groups, or items they have stored in a spreadsheet or CSV. Users have let us know it would be helpful if they could use this CSV to filter their content in Admin Tools for ArcGIS, and now you can!
