Bottom Line up Front: There may be a way to improve the mobile editing experience on the Sidebar Instant App by providing an edit confirmation prompt?
Real-world Problem: Urban Search & Rescue Task Force members collect waypoints and tracklogs in the field to show where they have been and what they've seen. Occasionally, the Plans Team Manager wants to edit or update the information from the Incident Command Post.
Technical Problem: We have used Web AppBuilder (WAB) in the past to allow for editing in a configuration, we call "Intel Manager". It has served us well, but we want to get ahead of the retirement and take advantage of editing and performance improvements in newer apps.

Here is our "Intel Manager 2.0" configured with the Sidebar App https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/9051a07ffd1947bbb395e9f9b4088f85/page/Intel-Manager-2_0-Ins...
We've received some feedback (mostly very positive) and wanted to post one example below. This is from a firefighter and member of US&R PA-TF1 Task Force who has become one of our best testers and is secretly falling in love with GIS 🙂
