00:03This video shows you how to create and publish an app from a template...
00:06...you find in ArcGIS Online.
00:09Templates are available in the Esri Featured Content gallery...
00:12...and are also accessible through the map viewer.
00:15These templates contain the code you need to configure your app...
00:17...that will be hosted on ArcGIS Online.
00:20This video assumes that you have been assigned a role within your organization...
00:23...that allows you to create and share items.
00:26First we will look at the configurable apps in the Esri Featured Content section of the Gallery.
00:31Select a template and open its details to get more information about the template.
00:35Depending on which template you pick, you can then publish the app.
00:40Enter a title, tags, and summary.
00:42Verify the folder where you want to save your published app and click OK.
00:46It’s that simple.
00:48Later in the video you will see how to configure and customize your new app.
00:52Next we will take a look at how to access the templates in the map viewer.
00:56Open a map that you have saved; then, click the Share button and click Make a Web Application
01:02Use the preview option to see how your map looks in the various templates...
01:05...noting the different functionality, legends, scale bars, layouts, and color schemes.
01:10For this demonstration, we will make an app with the Storytelling Text and Legend template.
01:15This template lets you display multiple layers via tabs.
01:19Click Publish; update the title, tags, and summary...
01:22...and verify the folder you are going to save it in.
01:24Then click Save & Publish.
01:26You’ve just created your app, and now you are going to configure it.
01:30Open the item details page and click Configure App.
01:33This is where you customize your app.
01:35You can change the color scheme, choose what information appears on the map...
01:39...and determine which maps you want to add into the template for this app.
01:43You also have the options to display the legend and description and include time-enabled maps.
01:48To add other maps to your app, enter the map IDs into the template.
01:52The map ID is listed in the URL when you open a map in the map viewer.
01:55It appears after the webmap= part of the URL.
02:00Copy this and paste it into the Webmap IDs box.
02:03Repeat this process to add two additional maps into the template.
02:06Once you are done, click Save to view your changes.
02:09Then click Done to finalize your customizations.
02:13Now it’s time to share your app.
02:15Click Share and check Everyone.
02:18By sharing your app, you allow members in your organization and the public to see it.
02:23In our example, we’ve created and shared an app that compares historic tsunami events...
02:27...on the island of Hawaii within a given period of time for the same locations.
