How do I load a map document from ArcGis into an online story map journal? I have tried several times but I saw somewhere that map documents are not accepted. Help
In order to get the data from your map document into a format that is compatible with Story Map templates in ArcGIS Online, the data needs to be published to your ArcGIS Online account. Please see the documentation below for steps on how to publish your data from either ArcGIS Pro or ArcGIS Desktop to ArcGIS Online.
Publish from ArcGIS Pro: Share a web feature layer—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop
Publish from ArcGIS Desktop: Publish to ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise—Publish services | ArcGIS Desktop
I hope this helps!
