Is it possible to choose one window template for each screen device view in ArcGIS Experience Builder?

Last Published: April 2, 2024

Answer

No, it is not possible to choose one window template for each screen device (large, medium, or small) view in ArcGIS Experience Builder. Only one window template can be selected, but using only one template disrupts content visibility that may be affected by the screen size differences.

As a workaround, resize and rearrange the layout of a window to fit each screen device, causing every device to have a different layout for the same window. Follow the steps below to resize and rearrange the window layout for medium and small screen devices.

  1. Open the ArcGIS Experience Builder experience and click Page The Page button to open the Page panel.
  2. Click the Window tab, and select the window to be customized.
  3. On the builder toolbar, click the Edit your page for medium screen devices button to refine the layout for medium screen devices.
