Alex,

   I think Sayak Nag is not reading that part were:

but I want to add a layer to the "Overview Map" not the map itself

This is not possible using the Add Data Widget.

I have been working on some customization to the overview map widget to try and add a layer but as of yet have been unsuccessful.

You can use the Add Data widget in Web AppBuilder. Click this link for more information on the widget.

Yes, the Add Data widget let's you add a single layer as well. To add layers by URL, click the URL tab next to the Search tab. Choose a type and enter the URL. Click Add to add the data to the map. The added layer will appear in the Layer List widget as well. The following types are supported through the URL:

  • ArcGIS for Server web service
  • WMS OGC web service
  • KML
  • GeoRSS
  • CSV

It's also mentioned in the link I shared, under the "Using the Add Data widget" section.

I apologize! I did miss that part. The Add Data widget can't help. Also, I don't think there is any widget available at the moment which would allow you to add layers to the overview map.

Maybe you are looking something similar to the Comparison Analysis template. Although it won't be a Web AppBuilder application. You can check out the following links and samples:

Comaprison Template

Swipe Tool

Hope this is of better help!
