So I added a zipped shapefile of point data from a file. This was put on a Web Map and this Web Map is connected to a Web AppBuilder.

I would like to use this "Near Me" widget to locate points closest to an address that is entered. However, the widget says my layers aren't configured properly. How can I configure my layer or make this work? Am I missing something in the attribute field?


When you choose the near me widget you have the option in WAB to select your layer you want to use. Did you pick the layer you want to use or just enable the widget?

    Did you publish the zip shapefile as a hosted feature layer in Online or is it in the map as a feature collection? I am thinking it is currently in the map as a feature collection and will need to be a feature layer to work with the near me widget. – Russ Roberts Mar 17 '16 at 19:15

upload the point layer as a hosted feature service to ArcGIS Online. Procedure is outlined HERE
