I need to use two maps for most of my slider maps, Simply removing one layer will not suffice.
Can we get this functionality added in Web App Builder?
WAB has a swipe widget. http://gislap183:3344/webappbuilder/help/index.html#//03w30000005z000000
There is also the custom widgets enhanced basemap gallery widget:

Yes but it doesnt have the swipe map for two maps. it has to be one map that you slide the layer. I am looking for the two maps so you slide the entire map back and forth between two maps.
Nothing like that exists then. And as a developer I can not see the dev team adding something like this just because of the amount of re-coding of the whole app structure that would have to happen for this.
what would be the business case to require a swipe of two maps? If the swipe tool is able to swipe layers?
well I have firestations with their 1.5 mile response areas currently with 26. we are looking at moving some stations and adding some so the firestation layer and response area layers are all different and when you just swipe one away it does not work I need to be able to swipe the two different maps of those two in order to show the change.
I still dont see the reason for two 'maps'. If I understand this correctly, you are just talking about two groups of layers.
Group them - Now and Proposed and publish as such.
In the Now group you have your now fire station layers (plural)
In the Proposed Group you have your new fire station layers (plural)
The Swipe tool will work with each group as the swipe tool looks at the base level of each item in the TOC (LayerList)
When i Put two layers they are over one another both are displayed then when swiped only the one is removed. I need to have a complete swipe where one layer is swiped in and the other swiped out both ways.
Take a look and see how I have the map layers and how they are completely removed on either side of the swipe line so you can see the changes to all the stations and areas without them bleeding over the others making it hard to see the changes for the stations that were relocated.
It asks me to sign in when I go to the link you provided.
It should be public I will look again when I get to the office.
Sorry I misunderstood what you were trying to accomplish. Effectively, you are looking for swipe to 'hide' one layer and at the same time 'show' the other. This is not feasible out of the box.
The above StoryMap link is not set to 'everyone' aka Public.
I had it set to public. Maybe our internal page settings. I will check.
it is an issue with our set up. I thought if I shared it public you could get to it but I guess that is not the case.
but you get the idea of what i was saying with the need for two maps.
If you are using a StoryMap, the Story Application as well as the Web Apps and Web Maps used in the Story map must all be 'Everyone' shared.
I understand what you are looking for now though it still does not require two web maps (sliding two entire web maps would also solve it, but with greater complexity). It just requires customizing the Slide widget to be able to show and hide two selected layers (composite layers or otherwise).
I was able to use two maps with the online configure tool but the widget in WAB does not offer that same set up.
I am unware of how to modify the slider that way I will have to look into that. If you know of anyone that has done this i would love to see what they did to make it work.
