I have a web app builder application that when you first load the app, the map is shown at full extent. When I zoom into the map, then close or refresh the browser, the map stays at the extent where I zoomed. Is this a bug? I want the map to return to full extent if the browser is refreshed or if the browser is closed, then the app is reopened.
I don't want the user having to clear the cache each time they want to view the map. I have also noticed that when I clear browser cache, that the map will also return to the zoomed in extent.
I checked my web map at arcgisonline and it displays at full extent. I can zoom in and if the browser is refreshed, the map returns to full extent.
Is there something I can do within WAB itself to ensure the map returns to full extent? I do have a home button to return to full extent, but I want the user to have a map at full extent when they open the map.
Has anyone else encountered this behavior?
Any help or pointers are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
