Auto refresh for Hosted Feature Layer Views?

I have an editable hosted feature layer that is shared with a closed group. I also have a non-editable view layer that's visible to the public, and this is the layer that's in a view only web app.

When I update the editable layer with ArcGIS Collector (or through any standard web map edit), the edit doesn't appear in the web app unless i refresh the web page. It doesn't appear just by panning the map. This refresh behaviour is unusual, and I would expect the edit to appear just by panning the map.

Any thoughts people?

Hello David, 

The response you are getting is expected. To get the app or any map to update without a refresh of the page you will need to go to the webmap feeding the app and set that layer to a specified refresh interval. Here is a help document that shows you where to go to set the interval.

https://doc.arcgis.com/en/arcgis-online/create-maps/set-refresh-interval.htm

Once that is set the map will update automatically thus updating your app.

Hope this is helpful...
