Quickly share your map using an app

If you want to share your map with others, using configurable apps is easy, and preferable to sharing using the map viewer (see Using a better map viewer to reach your audience). But if you need to share a map quickly, you don’t have to take the extra steps to configure, save, and share the application. If the app preview meets your needs, you can “quick share” directly from Preview by following these steps:

1. Save and Share your map. You must share the map publicly, or within your organization. Limit sharing to within your organization only if you want to quick-share privately with another member.

2. Click Make A Web Application to view the available app templates.

3. Find the template you want, and choose Preview.

4. Copy and paste the URL to quickly share the app with others.
