πŸ—£οΈCreate a Story

Once you login you will likely see the Story Manager view as depicted below...(if not, click on your username at the top right and select 'Stories' from the drop-down menu)

All stories need a title before they can be saved or published...the details section is optional but likely useful to populate πŸ˜‰.

The default content type is 'story' but there are other options to choose from

You can use the #hashtag convention in your story details, which is handy for searching in StoryKeeper, but even more powerful when using a WayFinder canvas for filtering, clustering and visualising based on hashtags.

You can also use the @mention convention to mention other people (users), enabling filtering and clustering of stories on a WayFinder canvas based on who has been mentioned in them (filtering by your (user)name is a good way to find other people's stories that have mentioned you!)

You can insert media from your media library (if it is populated) using the blue image icon toward the top right...

NOTE: media will be inserted as a link into the story details field - it will not be displayed.

Next to the image icon is an easel icon which will open a space for creating a hand drawing and inserting into your story (the functionality is very crude at the moment)

The final blue icon is for viewing a reference guide for "markdown" formatting, which is what you can use in your stories to format and render text in various ways, ie headings, bullet points, links etc.

Finally, you can save or publish your story using the green button to the right, below the story details (publishing will also automatically save it).
