I am trying to create a tab that has multiple color points. Innately the application only allows you to configure one color per tab.

Also, I am wondering how I could add a legend to the map pane.

Any ideas?

Hi Lucas

The Story Map Shortlist app doesn't support different color points in the same tab by design.

A legend can be added via customization but I couldn't find an example of a Shortlist with that added. Some authors have added legends to the Story Map Tour via customization: Gallery | Story Maps

Another approach that we sometimes see used in the Map Tour which you could use in Shortlist is to use the header to present text/graphics to serve as a legend, for example

Have you seen The Story Map Playlist app? It supports multiple colors and also has a built-in legend, so it might be a good one to use: http://storymaps.arcgis.com/en/app-list/playlist/

Note: There's also a Story Maps Space on Geonet. I recommend posting on there for help with developing with and customizing the Esri Story Maps apps: /community/gis/web-gis/storymaps/content
