GIS is about spatial relationships. Presently, the Query tool is the only way to do run-time spatial analysis from Web Apps. But, it feels very limited in practice.
I have 2 major ideas that would compound the value of this tool:
In Desktop, the Select by Location tool lets you compound multiple spatial queries. Right now in Online, I can get the first 2 done by force: Filtering my City Zoning Layer by R-3 via the Attribute Table's Filter Option, then running the pre-defined spatial query based on the R-3 Zone and Parcels. After that, there is no way to further refine your data. Currently, there is no way for us to take the result of the above Query, and apply the second spatial limitation. If I run the Parcel query a second time, the results are independent of one another (I get a results of R-3 as one, and 100ft of Arterial as another).
