Real-world Problem: Users want to share the extent of the map/dashboard they are looking at, with other non-GIS staff.
Audience: Search and Rescue, Firefighters, Law Enforcement - in particular, the US Federal Emergency Management Agency Urban Search and Rescue Teams
Example: (Exercise Only) Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS
Technical Problem: These users will 1) have no idea how to define an extent 2) the custom URL scheme outlined here is too complicated/difficult to memorize for GIS staff, nevermind first responders URL parameters—Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS | Documentation
Create a share widget or similar capability as described here Share widget—Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS | Documentation. I want the end-user to be able to click a share button and it shares the extent of the map they are looking at, just like Web AppBuilder and the web map viewer.
The ability to tell someone else - "Hey, look at this area over here!" is fundamental to geo-collaboration and right now there is no easy way to do that with Operations Dashboard.
