In our collection we would like to drive users through a multi-storymap experience (as Collections is intended to be used?). However, we find it strange that there is no way to link to the next tab after scrolling through a storymap (the hacky solution, adding a button that links to it, doesn't work well as  buttons only have the functionality of opening in a new tab). The ability to add an "Up next:..." button at the end of storymaps in a collection would be extremely useful for keeping users engaged and immersed in the experience.

This feature has been requested for a story map collection I'm working on as well. Some sort of navigation option at the end of each story would be very useful and seems more intuitive than going to the top of the page to continue.

Yes, this would be a helpful addition, "previous/next item". I understand the difficulty implementing it, since a story could be accessed individually. Or a collection footer?

But highly requested by authors working with Collections, since they are used as a binder, and a pre-thought navigation for the end user.
