FAQ: Is it possible to generate QR codes for the individual sections in an ArcGIS StoryMaps story created in Portal for ArcGIS?

Question

Is it possible to generate QR codes for the individual sections in an ArcGIS StoryMaps story created in Portal for ArcGIS?

Answer

No. It is not possible to do so for an ArcGIS StoryMaps story created in Portal for ArcGIS. Although there is no built-in function in ArcGIS StoryMaps to generate QR codes, third-party QR code generators can be used as a workaround. However, to generate QR codes for the individual sections in a story, anchor linking or section links of the individual sections are required. Section links are unavailable for a story created in Portal for ArcGIS.

The section links are not available when hovering over the headings and subheadings of a story created in Portal for ArcGIS.
