Collections are a new way of bundling related stories together in a single location that can be managed by you, the author and viewed by your readers when shared.
Get started by logging into the new ArcGIS StoryMaps, clicking your profile picture in the header, and selecting My Collections (beta).
You can also use the URL: https://storymaps.arcgis.com/collections.
This is the first release of this beta feature, and we'll be adding lots more capabilities in the future, but we'd like to hear your first impressions and thoughts:
I apologize for my unfamiliarity with this, but where can I go to find this feature? Is it only available in the new version of story maps? It certainly sounds like something that I would be really interested in utilizing.
I'm excited to see this option. One use case for this will be to combine student StoryMaps into one StoryMap. We can get quite a few StoryMaps (30+) from a class, so this will be helpful.
-I am having some issues with Collections, using Safari browser. (Not with a test I created, but with "the internal one with a seal-movie as intro".
-I will use collections a lot, since a better workflow to replace the use of Storymap Series + Storymap Journal is something many customers are hoping for. Especially if it in the future will be possible to create links between sections of one story to another story (without opening a new browser tab).
-The latter feature was something I was missing in this first version.
I am looking forward to elaborate on this subject.
The ability to link to sections of other StoryMaps in a collection would be great and a huge improvement on the classic templates!
Would it be possible to add the autoplay feature for Collections? I really like when presenting having the autplay run while speaking but that means I have to open each app individually.
