Streamline workflows with tasks in ArcGIS Pro

Spring is in the air! Take a break from spring cleaning and consider learning a new ArcGIS Pro skill. How about saving time and ensuring consistency by streamlining your team’s workflows with tasks?

What is a task in ArcGIS Pro?

A task is a set of preconfigured steps that guide you and others through a workflow or business process. A task can be used to implement a best-practice workflow, improve the efficiency of a workflow or create a series of interactive tutorial steps. All kinds of workflows, whether simple or complex, can be made into tasks—regardless of your experience level.

Check out this GeoSnap video showing a task in action and describing how to control which map layers are visible for which steps within a task.

If you’d like to get to know tasks better, come join us in our instructor-led course: Optimizing GIS Workflows with Tasks in ArcGIS Pro. In this course, you’ll use a task created for you, learn how to design and create your own tasks, share a task for others to use and discover best practices to simplify and optimize your GIS workflows using this tool.
