Add Vertical Elevation Exaggeration option to 3D ArcGIS online Scene Viewer

In order to effectively visualize relief in flat topographic areas, we need the ability to add vertical exaggeration to the online scene viewer.  This ability exists in ArcPro, and even in the legacy ArcScene, but not in online scene viewer?  This makes it very difficult to share interactive 3D data with non-GIS users.  


I made a goof while sharing a map in AGOL and accidentally had elevation data in feet which gets read as meters when published.  The thing is, it looks so much better with the vertical exaggeration I almost want to leave it that way.  Having an option to adjust vertical exaggeration in web scenes like you can in ArcPro would be terrific as I could apply that change to make the scene's details easier to view while not having bad elevation data.


I would love to be able to create something like this using the TopoBathy3D elevation layer and vertical exaggeration to extenuate variations in surface and sub-surface elevations. This was created in ArcGIS Pro.
