I would like to share a web map application (story map) with a co-worker so we can BOTH edit the application as needed.  Is this possible? Is this a setting under the enterprise account that I don't know about? 

Since I have not been able to find how to copy a web map application (appears to be impossible with today's technology) I am looking for alternative solutions.

The only thing I can think of is creating an account that we can both use, but this would be my last option.

Any assistance on this matter is much appreciated.  Thanks -

Follow the steps below

  1. Create a new Group and check the box next to "Members can update all items in this group".  group_settings.jpg
  2. Add/Invite the members to your group who you would like to be able to update your Story Map.
  3. Go to My Content and check the box next to your Story Map application item > select Share > Access and update capabilities.
  4. Choose the group your created in the first step and click Ok.

All members of the group should now be able to update the application.

Here are four ways to share a story map:

1) share the URL in the URL bar

2) search for the story map using the id number in the URL or search for the title (if using the title check that the author is the same). Once you have found it open the item details and select share. You can share with a group that you both belong to. (Note it is possible to invite people to an org with a customized role so they can only view material.)

3) some templates have options in the story map to share via social media

4) in GeoNet there is a way to share items. I believe you use the ! But will check on this

Hi Allison,

Thanks, but I want to “Share” for editing the actual Web Mapping Applications (Story Map) itself. Not sharing for viewing. Is there a way?

The only way I can think of is changing the owner back and forth which the admin can do (or perhaps a custom role). That is for configuring the story map template.

There have been changes made to the security setup when creating a group.  I'm currently the owner of a webmap.  I've created a group where I want all members in the group to be able to edit this specific webmap.  However, when I try to share the webmap to the group I've created, the group doesn't show.  Are there updated instructions that allow multiple people within a group to be editors of one web map?
