    Pretty sure this is not out there already - and would be surprised if it isn't actively being worked on, but further to Paul Barker's blog late last year, it would be great if there was the capability, rather than digitising an area of interest to define a hosted feature layer view (see below) - or using the extent of the map search, to have a cookie-cut capability for hosted feature layer views. I'm thinking here of referencing another boundaries dataset to act as the cookie cutter. Instead of digitising the area of interest, you would simply choose from another boundary dataset, published in your ArcGIS  organisation account - as a pick-list item. This would avoid the more time-consuming process of manually trying to define the areas.
