Admin Tools for ARcGIS Online

There are many reasons to consider adopting Admin Tools in your organization. Best of all, it takes only 2 minutes to access from the Marketplace and provision.  The following are 5 of the TOP tools that will support you in your job as the administrator of your ArcGIS Org’s users:

Thumbnail Generator – A robust thumbnail generator for bulk creation of custom thumbnails for your items. Include a custom logo or icon, select from several layout designs, include your standard HEX color selections, and more. This tool will help you organize all your content, make it more searchable in AGOL, and look very professional!

View Item Dependencies – Viewing item dependencies has been a request so highly demanded, and such an immediate need, that sometimes users of our software ask for it before realizing it’s already in our Pro tools! With the view item dependencies tool, we lay out exactly what admins want when they are checking on how content is used throughout their organization. A must use before you start re-naming or deleting data!

Export Users to CSV – Admin Tools for ArcGIS℠ Online allows you to export as many Items, Groups, or Users as you want to an Excel-friendly format (.csv). You can edit the content in Excel or even add new content quickly and easily.

Clone Items to Organization – This tool creates brand new items, with their dependencies configured automatically and no longer pointing to the original data source they were cloned from. This is a very useful tool for moving content into a new organization. The Clone tool is available in the Pro version of Admin Tools. Note – you can even use the clone tools to clone your story maps!
