Hello,

Is it possible to play the 'new' storymap in a loop using Autoplay?  When I turn on Autoplay for the storymap I've created it scrolls to the end of the story and then reverses back to the start.  I'm displaying the storymap in a public concourse and I would rather it looped back to the start rather than reversed back through the entire story (it looks very strange as it rapidly scrolls back through the entire story).

There only seems to be an option to turn on/off Autoplay but no settings to configure it.

Many thanks,

Helen

Hi Helen -- Thanks for providing feedback on the autoplay feature of ArcGIS StoryMaps. What you've described is the current behavior, but we're not happy with it either and already have plans to change it in an upcoming release in late Q1 or early Q2.

Hi @OwenGeo, I've been looking for a way to get the storymap to loop from the start while on autoplay - is this functionality still in work?

@Ben_TC -- Sorry, it appears that is a bug that was introduced in one of our recent releases. Autoplay should loop to the top of the story when it gets to the end.

We'll have autoplay working properly again in about a week after our next update.
