I am disappointed to see the crowdsourcing story map in mature support. What does esri suggest using in place of this application? My municipality was trying to publish an app for people to submit and view Halloween decor around the city. We were hoping to do the same thing for Christmas decor.
After putting out a similar but clunkier version ourselves using 3 different templates packaged into one story map (that fell flat with users), we stumbled on the mature crowdsourcing story map and it suites our needs so much better. Every thing works well on desktop, tablet and phones which was not the case on the product we created with a different storymap template.
