Often when building your story you want to include links to SharePoint sites, other business systems and external websites within the items so that users have quick links to useful additional content.

In addition to adding URL resources one-by-one to the items, you can bulk paste URL resources into the Data Grid.

 

You can access the Data Grid from the story toolbar:
