My operations dashboards look great when I first embed them in the new story map format, but if I leave the page and come back, I lose my extent on my maps they're zoomed way out. Is there a way to fix this?
Hi Jen -- The extent shown in a map inside an embedded app comes from whatever is saved in the app. If you want to change the extent that's shown you'll need to update the app itself and then those changes will be reflected when that app appears in your story.
Thanks for the quick response, Owen. You're talking about here, right? I've tried both 'Use current map view' and 'Use web map's default extent' and I'm still having the same problem. Is there another place where I need to save the extent?
Hi Jen — Hmm, that looks like Web AppBuilder rather than Operations Dashboard.
I’m not an expert in either, but there are spaces for each here on GeoNet where someone would be able to help you get the extent saved the way you want.
Hi Jen -- I'm not able to reproduce this issue with either a Web AppBuilder or Operations Dashboard app embedded inside a story.
Just to clarify, any extent changes you make to a map that is part of an embedded app are not saved when you are in the story builder. You need to update and save the configuration of the embedded app to update the map extent. Also, could you expand on what you mean by "leave the page and come back?" Do you mean you switch to another browser tab and then back to the tab with the story, or in the same browser tab you leave the story map to visit another page and then return to the story map? Lastly, does the embedded app behave the same way if it's not embedded in a story?
If you are able to share your story with everyone and provide the link it would be easier if we could take a look at your specific story. If you're not able to share your story I'd recommend contacting Esri Support and they can help you troubleshoot further.
