We have been using the App and Map Gallery Template to provide a list of available downloadable data (mainly excel files but will also contain pdf in future). While this was never the ideal solution it as least provided the option of directly downloading the data. (For those who are not aware: the App and Map Gallery Template is no longer available as a template under the web app options.) When I now do for example the Category gallery app I would always have to go through the item details page to download the data. I like this app better because the filtering can be done as I am used to in AGOL but I don't want my user to go through the item's details page every time he wants to download an excel file.
Any workaround for this issue?
