The classic Story Map Series app template allows users to display a series of maps using tabs, numbered bullets, or expandable 'side accordion' control. Beside maps, users can also include images, video, and web content in the classic Story Map Series to convey their stories. After the release of ArcGIS StoryMaps in July 2019, some functionalities for the classic Esri Story Maps templates are no longer available.
This article provides a few available apps that perform the same functions as the classic Esri Story Maps Series template.
Create story maps with tabs in ArcGIS StoryMaps
In ArcGIS StoryMaps, create story maps with tabs to use the same function as the tabbed layout option in the classic Story Map Series app template. Refer to FAQ: Is it possible to create story maps with tabs similar to Map Stories Builder in ArcGIS StoryMaps? for instructions.
Use the ArcGIS StoryMaps Collections option
The Collections option can be configured with navigation options similar to the tabbed and bulleted layouts of the classic Story Map Series app template. Refer to ArcGIS StoryMaps: Create your first collection or ArcGIS StoryMaps: Create your first collection with ArcGIS StoryMaps for instructions.
