Is it possible have extended collaboration on a story map similar to the Crowdsource app but with a log in so that featured businesses (as in a Shortlist story map) can submit their own content? Thanks!
Hi, that's not supported. The only Story Map app that provides crowdsourcing ability, so that your readers create your story for you ) is Story Map Crowdsource. Story Map Crowdsource is set up for that sort of use, so we'd recommend that.
To populate something like a Shortlist or Map Tour from user submitted entries, you could just provide folks with an email address to send you their info. It's not automatic like Story Map Crowdsource but it may be a good solution. Or you could gather content using Story Map Crowdsource and then put that content into a Shortlist or Map Tour. For example, you could create a Map Tour showing the top 20 best entries that you received via your Crowdsource app.
It's unfortunate not to be supported for most story maps. We have students that need to work in groups on their projects. It would be ideal if they could collaboratively edit their group story map. I imagine this would hold true outside of educational contexts as well.
