We recently used the shortlist template to build a story map to show case a series of features within out service territory.  We have embedded this within our website, to allow for standard look and feel for the map. 


The problem is that embedded maps do not allow for the ability to utilize the location services.  As a work around, we added a link on the page to force users to a new tab of the map as a stand-alone application.


It would be nice to have the embedded story maps be able to utilize the location services within the application.  I am not certain why this is not possible, but it would be nice to figure out to avoid the additional need for another hyperlink.  The settings tell you this is not an option, but I would like to see that fixed.

The classic Esri Story Maps templates are in extended support (read more) and are no longer being updated with new capabilities and features. We recommend using ArcGIS StoryMaps for all storytelling projects.

If your idea is not implemented in ArcGIS StoryMaps and you would like to request it be considered for a future release, please submit a new idea with the details of your request and how it would be useful to you and your organization.
