FAQ: Is it possible to add feature counts in an ArcGIS Online map legend?

Question

Is it possible to add feature counts in an ArcGIS Online map legend?

Answer

Feature counts in map legends help users to visualize and summarize the grouping of data based on feature items listed in the legend. However, it is not possible to add feature counts to the ArcGIS Online map legend. This is as-designed in ArcGIS Online. As an alternative, use the Info Summary widget in Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS to add feature counts to feature items.

Note:
Feature counts with feature items displayed using the Info Summary widget are for viewing only. Printing the web app does not print the feature counts. Printing the web map or web app with only the feature items is possible.

• In a web map: Click Print > Print with Legend. For more information, refer to FAQ: Is it possible to print legends in a web map?
• In a web app: Add and click the Print widget, select Advanced > Include Attributes > Print.
  1. In ArcGIS Online, create a Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS app from the selected web map. For more information on creating a web app, refer to Web AppBuilder for ArGIS: Create your first app.
