Is there a way that I can choose the priority on how the pop-up window shows on ArcGIS Online?

For example, I have 2 layers named Active Country and Inactive Country. In my current data, I have 2 Nigeria polygons wherein each represent a program.

What I want to happen is to decide the pop-up display order of overlapped polygons.

The popups are returned by what is returned by the server first, there is no prioritizing of results.

  • Thanks! I was hoping there's a way on how I can make a certain feature to appear first. Commented Oct 12, 2017 at 14:42

Esri has a resource page to assist you with configuring the pop up in ArcGIS Online Configure pop-ups

Browse to the sublayer that contains the feature data you want to configure in a pop-up, click More Options More Options, and click Configure Pop-up.

Also, View pop-ups

A list of field attributes shows typical name/value identify results. Authors can modify the visibility, order, number formatting, and date formatting so the information appears in a logical and understandable format.

  • Thank you for this but what I meant is for the data to appear in a preferred format when two data overlap each other. Commented Oct 12, 2017 at 14:42
