My company loves these new story maps and wants me to recreate several packages using this amazing template. Before I go to work on these projects, I was wondering if these stories would carry over when the finished product is released?
Nicholas -- Thanks for your note. It's great to hear that you and your company are enjoying and finding value in the new ArcGIS StoryMaps!
Our goal is for beta stories to continue to work after the beta period ends.
That being said, this is currently a beta product that we have released as a preview for testing and feedback (see screenshot of message that is shown when you publish a story), so we do reserve the right to make breaking changes or remove features/options that aren't up to our standards for the initial public release coming in July.
Our primary responsibility is to release a stable product. If that goal is in conflict with a specific beta feature we may have to make some choices that may impact existing stories. Currently, we don't have any indication that there will be a situation like this.
I too would like to try and keep the stories I've built. If there are certain elements that aren't compatible with the new software, would these be saved or we be notified of what wouldn't be there anymore? Also, will the URLs update too?
