A simple way to make a Story Map in ArcGIS Online based on a featureclass with attachments and a description field.
Present: My field workers have added pictures and descriptions to a featureclass, and now i would like to make a storymap with the data. The way to do it now is to copy+paste the text into the sections in the sidepanel one by one. And I must afterwards add URLs for the pictures one by one.
Future: Ability to configure the side panel in the Story Map template, so I can use existing text from a field in the map featureclass and also the existing attachments in the featureclass. Set it up once and it automatically makes sections for the objects.
This would make workflows transferring existing data to the story-telling format a lot easier. A lot of the data we have that could be used in a story already has a lot of the descriptions and photos as attachments and fields, or if they don't it's simple to set them up in desktop and push them to a hosted layer online, but having to then manually transfer these to a story map is a tedious workflow, particularly for data that gets updated frequently.
