Scenario: A designer has created a story map with dummy text. The editor would like to work within the story map to write/edit titles, text, captions, etc. And a third person, skilled at writing alt text would like access to do their job. How do I create a collaborative story map where more than one person can edit?

Absolutely you can do this.

Create a Group, Share your story map with the Group.

Invite other authors to the Group.

To make changes, the other members of the group have to have a user role that gives them adequate power - in our organization this is frequently a Publisher role, but ESRI has a new "StoryTeller" role that looks interesting:
