I'm exploring Esri's pre-made web app templates, and the Interactive Legend looks very helpful. When I create a Story Map, I don't see a way to have the maps within it have an Interactive Legend. I'm wondering if it is possible to do this.

Hi @UnderstandFast 

Yes, you can use it in your Storymap, once you have the web app, copy and add the URL using embed option. 

Upon saving you should be able to view the web app in the StoryMap. Please check this link as an example

Thanks, @ManishPatel. Creating a web app (or apps) with the Interactive Legend, then adding those apps to the Story Map is a reasonable workaround.

I was thinking specifically of the Story Map "Series" where you can have each tab's location be inherited from the first map; I think the embed method won't do this.  Still, what you suggest is a good workaround - thank you.

Hopefully Esri adds a widget for an interactive legend to story maps!
