- Updates to Work Manager functionality and a return to the 7.3.6 UI.
- Support for Tunnels in Structures Inspector
- Pavement Analyst functionality improvements.
New Features and Enhancements
- Satellite maps have been added and can now be turned on and off.
- Detailed maps will now be automatically downloaded when a user zooms into a specific area of the map, as long as the user is connected to the internet. The user no longer needs to manually click Download detailed map but that option is still available.
- Users can choose to use the full screen of their device to view the map if they need to.
- The mobile app now supports the lookup of friendly addresses on the map:
- This is only available when online. If offline, the search bar will indicate that the user is offline.
- All maps display the new icons for address search.
- Clicking on the address search brings up a search bar
- Search results (up to 10 at a time) are listed as the user types.
- User can scroll if needed to view additional results.
- The user can select any result from the list of search results. This adds a black dot with the location address on the map at that location.
- The map will automatically pan and zoom to the selected location.
- Clicking anywhere on the screen closes the searched location.
- Once an address is selected, the left panel closes and the address appears on the map.
- If there is no internet connection, a message will notify users of this when they click the search icon.
- If the internet connection drops while the user is searching, the message on the left panel will say that there is no internet connection.
- If the user enters the address that does not exist, an error message will notify them that "There were no results found for <entered text>"
The WM app has been reverted from the 7.4+ UI to the 7.3.6 UI with the following improvements still supported:
New sync mechanism introduced in 7.4.4.
New map control introduced in 7.4.5.
Icons and improved location rendering on the map.
Bug fixes introduced after 7.3.6 which are not related to the new UI.
The structures inspector web application now fully supports the management and inspection of tunnels. Agencies can empower their tunnel program managers and other tunnel management personnel, to manage the inventory and inspections of their tunnels network and also be able to generate the NTI (National Tunnel Inventory) report for submission to the FHWA. The capabilities of the system include the following:
- View the tunnel inventory.
- Edit the tunnel inventory with a quality assurance phase for verification of edits.
- Plan and schedule inspections to be inspected by a third party firm or the agency's inspectors.
- Record inspections and collect element ratings, defects and attach media (photos, sketches etc) as evidence.
- Perform quality assurance of completed inspections.
- Generate an NTI submission report file for a candidate year.
- Users can select to execute a pavement analysis scenario without including geometry (this improves execution time of the analysis) and then select to add geometry for scenario results they would like to plot on a map
- Users can now select on-demand, which management section definition that an analysis scenario should be executed against. This allows for generating scenario results for reporting on 0.1 mile sections, and generating scenario results for workplans using an agency's section segmentation.

As of Chrome 71, browser pop-ups may be blocked which will negatively affect system operations. To address this in Chrome go to Settings > Advanced > Content Settings > Pop ups and redirects and then add the URL for the application.
The new GIS Explorer like all web mapping applications requires datasets in the geographic coordinate system (EPSG:4326), so customer schemas with data stored in a different coordinate system would need to be transformed in order for map layers to be created from the dataset. See the section on re-projecting geometries in the Implementation Guide
Inserting a location or inventory item from a map is not functional when using Firefox as your web browser. To work around this limitation, use the other supported web browsers: IE 11, Chrome or Safari
When you select to print a map as an image (png file) using Firefox as your web browser, the file is downloaded as map.png.pdf. You would have to manually edit out the '.pdf' extension from the file name, after the file has been downloaded, to be able to open/use the file
When you define a map print template of size 34x44 or larger, an error is returned since the size of the generated map image always times before a PDF for printing is generated
While working on the GIS Interface and performing tasks that does not generate a request to the server (such as styling a map), your user session may expire as a result. The configured session expiration warnings will be displayed when this occurs or your session may timeout and a session expiration notification displayed, if a warning is not configured
Map filter value does not get pre-populated in the Jasper report print template, even though the parameter is specified for display in the template
Map filter value cannot be defined or edited for a map with a specified area of interest. To work around the definition limitation, the map filter should be defined before the AOI is set
A map's layer style settings become null and un-editable, when an applied filter is partially applicable or not applicable to the defined styling attribute values for the map
On a map bound to a data window, some items when selected on the map aren't highlighted in the data window because they aren't present there (In a data window, items can be Access Regulated), but on the map all inventory items are displayed
The loading and display of maps and associated styles in IE 11 is not as performant as Chrome, Firefox and Safari
In the Roads & Highways interface, routes with curves are not handled properly by the ESRI FDGB API. A workaround is to have the agency densify the routes to turn the curves into line strings
The HTML5 based copy/paste functionality has limitations on the number of rows that can be copied to a browser's clipboard
IE 11 - 4000 rows
Edge - 4000 rows
Chrome - 400 rows
Firefox - 1000 rows
IE or Edge on a Surface Tablet - 15 rows
When you select to copy rows from a data window, data from hidden columns on the window are also copied to the clipboard
The spinner indicating that a layer is loading in the GIS Explorer, continues to spin after selecting to remove a previous loading layer by using either the new map or remove layer option
When zoomed in at the 0.6km/0.4m level before selecting to print a map, the basemap is not rendered on the resulting printed map

An image layer is not displayed on the map when change the basemap from the 'None' option to any other basemap option
A map comprised of layers from multiple sources including an image service, does not display the layers in the correct z-order when the layers are re-ordered
For some monitor resolutions, opening the messages dialog while the GIS Explorer window is open results in the messages dialog to be partially hidden
In FDC, when enter an incorrect password twice and then enter the correct password afterwards, a message indicating an incorrect reCAPTCHA answer is displayed
When the same editable layer is added to GIS Explorer so there are more than one active, the features on the layer cannot be dragged for an edit
The undo/redo of edits retains the actions performed even the associated layer has been removed
When add a new editable layer to a map with in-progress edits, the undo and redo options are temporarily disabled. Performing an edit re-enables undo/redo and previous edits can be undone or redone
When a user a user enters an incorrect username or password in the Work Manager mobile app, an incorrect message 'Unable to connect to server' is displayed
In Microsoft Edge, some admin units in the Admin Units drop-down on the inspection team's creation dialog, appear as actionable links
Setting some columns as fixed in a data window is not functional in IE 11
Setting of columns as fixed in a data window is not supported in right to left language displays, such as for Hebrew or Arabic, i.e. only the left most columns can be fixed
GIS Explorer does not display a basemap nor the basemap selection dialog, when using Microsoft Edge web browser. However, basemaps function as expected with IE 11, Chrome and Firefox web browsers
