When I go to + Add layer there is no option to add a layer from a REST Url - is it there somewhere and I am missing it?
Nevermind, I see that it is in the What's coming. It would be nice if the initial popup explaining this app said something like "We have only changed the UI, don't expect anything new yet and and don't expect all the functionality to be in this yet." I know it's beta, but explain that you really want feedback on the UI at this point so that people don't expect the same functionality yet - it would save a lot of posts. I do like the new UI btw.
Thanks for the feedback Lee. There are some limitations with the layers that you can add with the map viewer beta. The initial release works primarily with feature layers. There are some ways to work around some of these limitation currently, like registering the url as an item in your ArcGIS Online organization for this particular workflow. We will be updating this beta with incremental releases over the next few months so stay tuned for when this moves out of beta to have more complete functionality.
