Capital Projects Explorer - FAQ


Q: Can I use an Esri Connected dataset to power the Shapes on CPE?

A: Yes you can, but the dataset must be set up using the ESRI connector at domain/admin/connections. They must be connected as maps, not an external dataset.

Q: How do I add Subcategories to CPE?

A: Once you have added a sub category column into your Dataset, there is a two step process to add these sub categories to the Explorer. First, in Field Mappings on the site admin site, add the column with your data through the drop-down. Next, navigate to Configurations -> Project Types and add the Sub Categories to each Category Type. 

Q: I have updated my data in the dataset but it is not showing up on the Explorer, how long should I wait?

A: It can take up to an hour for new data to refresh on the explorer. If it has not updated after an hour please contact

Q: Can I change the way dates are formatted in the CPE?

A: At this time, there is no ability to change how dates are formatted in CPE. By default, fields configured as dates in the project details area show up in the verbose (June 8th, 2016) format. 

Q: Where do I configure my project icons?

A: Project icons are configured in the admin panel under Configurations > Project Types. From there you can configure both a light and dark icon to be used for your project.

Q: Can I attach a document to a Project Page?

A: You cannot attach a document directly to the page but you can use the Website field mapping to link to externally hosted documents.

Q: What icon set is used for CPE?

A: Font Awesome!

Q: Can I change the basemap used in CPE?

A: Yes, though this is not a readily customer-completable task. In Branding > Map Configurations, there is a setting called Base Map, which accepts a Mapbox map style. Please contact for additional mapping styles.
