@NasratullahOmari -- At the moment, you can use someone else's story as a template in some cases.

The other person needs to be a member of your organization. They would need to create a group with shared update privileges, invite you to that group, and share their story to that group. You would then have permissions to duplicate that story to create a copy of it in your account.

Alternatively, if you are an administrator you can also duplicate stories owned by other members of your organization.

There is some work currently in progress on the ArcGIS Online side that will enable us to open up this workflow to be more flexible in the future. We hope to have more updates on this in the second half of this year.

The duplicate option in the story builder is available for administrators and members of any shared update groups to which the story is shared. You can use this option to create a copy of a story or to use an existing story as a template for a new story. Collections and themes can be duplicated as well.
