The description for the "Storytelling Text & Legend" hosted app template states that you should be able to add multiple tabs to include many web maps in tabs. However, when I share a map as a hosted app using that template, and add the extra web map IDs in the customisation screen, they don't show up.

When I download the template code and modify the javascript directly to include the other map IDs, the tabs show up & the app behaves as expected.

This is quite a nice template and a good replacement for the retired "Storytelling tabbed" template. I like the display and the options to display the text and/or legend. As such I'd like to be able to use it in a hosted fashion.

Is this a known bug in the hosted configuration? Is it designed as intended and the item description is misleading?
