Which user types and roles can use the sketch functionality in ArcGIS Online Map Viewer?

Last Published: June 2, 2021


To use the Sketch tool in ArcGIS Online Map Viewer, a user must have a Creator or GIS Professional user type and their role must be configured to User, Publisher, Facilitator, or Administrator.

ArcGIS Online public account holders can create sketch layers.

Refer to ArcGIS Online: User types, roles, and privileges for more information.

Features in a sketch layer are saved in the map, but not as a feature layer. Therefore, only the map author can edit and save sketch layers.
