DON’T FORGET TO SAVE YOUR MAPS, CONSTANTLY
You can make your maps and complicated or simple as you need them to be.
You can’t collaborate using a free account
Follow the tip: "If you already have the URL for a specific ArcGIS web map (https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=346b76ac939f474b80795b7a3427831c), you could also access it directly. You'd search for the ID part of its URL, in this case, 346b76ac939f474b80795b7a3427831c" It seems everyone and their brother has done this demo so you will have to sort through a lot of stuff to find that specific ArcGIS web map.
