My Stories


This page is for the classic Esri Story Maps templates. If you are looking for the newer story authoring experience, the ArcGIS StoryMaps app is available in ArcGIS Enterprise as of 10.8.1.

The My Stories page of the Story Maps web app helps you build and manage your story maps.

Open My Stories

You can access My Stories from the Share dialog box in the app settings.

When you create a Story Map Cascade, Story Map Journal, Story Map Series, Story Map Swipe and Spyglass, or Story Map Tour app in the configurable Story Maps app builder in ArcGIS Enterprise, click Manage all your stories on the Share dialog box to open My Stories.

Use My Stories

My Stories presents all the story maps you own. You can sort the list or filter the list based on type of story map or sharing level. You can also search for specific story maps.

When you click the name or thumbnail of a story map, My Stories shows the options available for that story map, such as the option to change the sharing level, to preview the story map, or to edit the story map or its contents. My Stories tests the validity of the story map's layers and maps when you choose the story map from the list to ensure the app can access these resources.

My Stories also allows you to verify the validity of all your story maps at once. To do so, click Check Stories. Messages are returned for any of your story maps that contain broken layer or map connections.

You can also create story maps from My Stories. When you click Create Stories, the Create a New Story interface guides you through creating the right story map for the story you want to tell.
