It would be great if several of the widgets in WAB or Operations dashboard would allow for more than one data source to be used at one time.  If there are similar fields within different data sources then combined counts and charting would be possible off of multiple features.  Use Case:  We are looking at deploying the Electric Utility Damage Assessment app.  This app comes out of the box with the ability to collect damage reports (poles, wires, transformers) via a point feature.  However, we have a business case where we would actually like to use the polygon to collect the damaged features if the area in question is large.  At this moment there would be no way to aggregate the pole counts from the point and polygon features into a single count or chart widget.

Something like this could be done with a data expression. With that said, any type of on-the-fly geometry intersection (etc) could slow performance if done on large datasets or with complex polygon geometries.
