This idea was submitted on behalf of a customer.

Following on from Bernie Szukalski‌'s blog post, it is clear that Story Maps are being used more and more for presentations, in particular the Story Map Series and Story Map Cascade templates.

A nice enhancement would be the support of the use of presentation remote/clickers to scroll between different sections in a Story Map. So when you click next on the presentation remote/clicker, the presentation moves onto the next section (Story Map Series below):

In a Story Map Cascade, the presentation remote/clicker actually scrolls the page. However it mimics the Page Up/Page Down buttons on a keyboard. This leads to quite a jagged presentation (try it yourself)! Perhaps something could be done to control this a little. I'm not sure whether this is possible technically, but if it is, it would be a nice enhancement!
