Mapfolio, the popular application for users of ArcGIS Online, gets a fresh upgrade, enabling users of ArcGIS Online to get in, get what you need, and get out!
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Sept. 13, 2016 -- Now, more than ever, Mapfolio lets you navigate and personalize your ArcGIS Online experience with ease. Simplify your search by creating personalized landing pages that filter only the content your users need, allowing them to engage in fewer clicks and with less confusion. With Mapfolio, you can navigate and personalize the ArcGIS experience with ease. GEO Jobe believes that users will more readily accept new ways of doing things if they can quickly and easily find the information they are looking for, rather than being overwhelmed by too many options. With Mapfolio you can begin to build the confidence of your ArcGIS Online users while empowering them to retrieve the information they're needing with minimal to no hassle.
Many of you have asked for a public version of Mapfolio, and we have listened. A few other goodies have been added to this release as well, including:
- make your Mapfolio instance public as a homepage for your ArcGIS Online organization - this means Mapfolio can be used as the landing page of your organizational account!
- select a group to be "featured" above all other groups
- toggle if a user's favorites are visible or not.
Note, there are quite a few "under the hood" improvements with this release that may impact classes referenced by custom CSS used to customize Mapfolio:
Fully responsive design - Anywhere on Any Device
Fully touch-enabled on mobile devices
Filter content using tags
Turn on/off profile pics
Easly add items to your favorites
Quickly add comments to items

Not everyone is a GIS Pro needing access to "everything" within ArcGIS Online. To some, this can be overwhelming when really all they 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 that 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, on any device.
Mapfolio is available to users of ArcGIS Online in several license options including; free personal use option, and a per year (annual) mapfolio for Pro option. See www.geo-jobe.com/mapfolio/
