Brad -- Thanks for your feedback. When you get a chance, could you please provide some more information about what else you'd like to be able to do via URL parameters in the new ArcGIS StoryMaps?
Anything Share widget can do in WAB - zoom to an extent or a query of a feature by attribute and show its popup, like query and zoom to a parcel or address point and show its popup.
Hi @OwenGeo , are URL parameters available yet? I'm unable to find documentation. My use case is that I'm trying to replicate the classic series template with map actions. If I can at least navigate to a text element in the sidecar with a URL parameter, that would be great. If I could activate a map action (which turns on/off specific layers) that would be amazing. Just navigating to the top of the sidecar widget wouldn't be helpful because that's all there is in the storymap so the url parameter didn't help make navigating easier. I could break the 50 map actions into separate sidecars, but that would be way too much scrolling for users not navigating to the site via parameters and looks pretty bad with so many duplicates of the same webmap. At least with the classic map series, they cover each other up when you flip between tabs.
Hi @ChelseaRozek -- Yes, you can link to any heading or subheading in your story using the process outlined in How to create a link to somewhere else in your story
Map actions are also available if you want to toggle layer visibility. You can learn more about them here: Supercharge your stories with map actions
Can you share more about how you are using 50 map actions in the same story or share a link to your story so far or the classic story you are trying to replicate? 50 map actions seems like a lot for a single story, so maybe if we know a little more we can recommend another way to think about organizing things?
Thanks for sharing that post! In case it helps someone else, I was also able to stack it with hiding the cover:

I'll send you a message about my project so I don't clutter up this thread.
