oArcGIS 2021 (ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1, ArcMap 10.8.2, ArcGIS Pro 2.9.x) is the last supported ArcGIS release of WebOffice.

oArcGIS 2022 (ArcGIS Enterprise 11.x, ArcGIS Pro 3.x) will be not be supported in future WebOffice versions not.

VertiGIS recommends the Esri product versions ArcGIS Desktop (ArcMap) 10.8.2 and ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 as these are Long term releases from Esri Inc. Furthermore, it is recommended to use ArcGIS Pro 2.9.x.
