Which Story Map App Template has the capability of adding a Splash Screen?
I know you can do this in WAB, but I was looking for a the ability to configure a Splash Screen in a Story Map App Template (out of the box), also no downloading the app, or adding custom code in that respect. 
Thanks in advance for any info you could provide!

Hi Kristen, 

Is there a certain functionality you're looking to use with the splash screen? Like asking a user to agree to T&Cs?

From my knowledge, none of the storymaps currently have the capability of adding a splash screen OOTB - the closest might be in the Story Map Tour where you can use a point as an Introduction to the story map:

Like you mentioned, Web AppBuilder does allow you to include a splash screen, and so does the Basic Viewer so one of those could be embedded at the start of your storymap.

Otherwise it's worth adding this to the Ideas site: ArcGIS Ideas - these get implemented quite regularly.
