Add assets from your toolkit

Many users will have their own unique toolkit, but the process of adding tools (assets) to your map site is the same. Whether you want to add points, lines, or polygons, you will navigate and use the same steps. Depending on your project, your toolkit will have individual tool groups and tools that correspond with the work you are doing. Here's how to add assets to your site:
