I'm trying to put together a basic viewer of snow emergency route roads for my municipality to share publicly. I thought the Basic Instant App would be fine, because I don't need any functionality, and literally just want to show the map, but I wanted to have a splash screen to briefly explain what the user is looking at, and what some of the tools are. When I searched the Instant Apps by capability with "Splash Screen", the Basic one was still there, but I don't see any functionality for splash screen actually in the configuration.

Is there already splash screen functionality and I'm missing it, or is that functionality just not there for Basic Instant Apps? If it's not there at all, I feel like that's a misstep, and the ability to have a splash screen should be universal across all applications.

We are working to standardize capabilities like the splash screen across all apps but as you’ve noted it’s not currently available in Basic. The Media app has the same simple look and feel as Basic and includes an Introduction panel that can be configured to open when the app loads so that might be a good alternative for you.

Thanks for the information, I switched over to the Media Instant App for now.

Standardizing the intro panel across all apps sounds great; do you have a timeline on this? Thanks!

Hi @KellyHutchins, any timeline on this?  It would be very useful to have a splash screen on Basic.
