When was the pop-up message encouraging all users to try the map viewer beta released into ArcGIS Online?

We know that the beta viewer can be completely disabled for an org, but we'd like to leave it as an option for users to explore, without prompting all of our user base to use it.

Many of our users are not going to be familiar with this and that the message from Esri changed from total interchangeability between classic and beta map viewers and understand the differences in compatibility in either direction - which we expect will continue to change as the beta viewer matures. Given that it doesn't have an attribute table we feel that users will generally not find it ready for use, but it certainly is a far superior experience over the classic viewer in some regards.

Esri Technical Support has no information on or contacts for the above.

Can you announce changes before you make them, and provide administrators more control?

When you disable it under the admin settings the prompts + open actions on items are hidden. The app is still available by URL or by the App Launcher to the org.

Then you can use the Open Existing option in the Map Viewer Beta to open up maps previously authored or you can create new maps from the Map Viewer Beta.

Russell Roberts‌, that's good information. In this case it works out, but in general I'd expect that disabling something actually disables it, not just partially obscures it.

I'll pass this information along to Esri Technical Support, as it will apparently be news to them, as well.

Thanks for your prompt response.
