How to turn off new "auto saved map extent and layer visibility" in Nov 2015 update?

The November 2015 update has a new feature listed for Web AppBuilder where the app automatically saves your last location and layer visibility for the next time you open the app.  HOW DO I TURN THIS OFF?  This seems to be causing issues with map layers not loading that are coming from our internal server.  Plus, I want all the layers to go back to the map default each time on map open.

Jianxia Song​, is an "issues addressed" list published with the WAB releases? This is done for other esri products, but haven't been able to find it for WAB Dev. I know there is a basic summary of "what's new in v1.3", more specifically interested in bug fixes. Thanks

Hi Cole,

An "issues addressed" list for Web AppBuilder Developer Edition v1.3 will be posted on GeoNet soon. We are finalizing the document. Thanks for your patience.

EDIT: FYI, the document is now available,

Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS Developer Edition v1.3 enhancements

Hope this helps

Has this been fixed?  I want to turn off saving session info on a very simple webapp built through the AGOL interface that is embedded in iframe on another website.  The popup is annoying for this application.

Hi Christy,

You can disable the 'save app state' function on the Attribute tab when configuring your app in Web AppBuilder.
