What is this feature?

Commenting and discussion for viewer collaborators is enabled by default to facilitate the online collaboration with the Viewer collaborators, but in some cases you might wish to turn it off. Please note, that only users with Workspace Admin and Story map Admin roles can disable it. If you disable this function the Viewer collaborators can still access the story map in read-only mode. Keep in mind, that if you have multiple story maps this feature needs to be disabled for each story map, where you do not wish to allow commenting.

How to disable it?


To disable it, please follow the steps listed below:

  1. Go to your workspace, and select the Manage workspace menu from the top navigation bar;

  2. Select the story map and click on the ... icon, then select Edit;

  3. Under the Collaborators tab switch the Commenting and discussion for viewer collaborators toggle on.

You can also disable this function directly from your Story map:

  1. Open your Story map;

  2. Select Share button from the top navigation bar;

  3. Under the Collaborators tab switch the Commenting and discussion for viewer collaborators toggle on.
