I want to construct an app that builds a crowd sourced map from people's reports much like the graffiti demo app however I want for them to be able to interact with the map and see hot spots of the reports all within the same mobile application. Appreciate any guidance!
Sure you can. That is part of why we built them so you have code to pillage to create your own magnificent app!
As a quick suggestion, look at the MapPage.qml in the Quickreport, It was designed for this type of scenario, just never made it into prime time. Take a look at how that works and how we use the stackview to populate the screen.
I think you will be able to add a button somewhere and do a "push" to get what you want.
Good luck and happy mapping.

This answer is what I was looking for. I am trying to combine the functionality of map viewer and quick report.
However, since I have no prior experience in QT and QML I am unable to properly understand how to proceed.
Can you please elaborate on how to work with MapPage.qml
Also can you suggest some sources where I can learn more about customizing appstudio templates using QT?
Hoping to hear from you soon!
Please take a look at this wiki. This has some nice tips and tricks and quick code snippets to use to learn more about QML, Runtime and AppStudio.
