Connecting user submitted data to Mapbox map

I’m using the Mapbox plug-in to build an interactive map that displays user-submitted stories and generates filtered results for readers. I’m confused about how to link the user-submitted stories (which will be stored in the bubble database) to the map. I know I need to ask “authors” to tag a location to their story, but… how do I do this? :melting_face:

Also: after reading the mapbox documentation, it seems like Mapbox uses it’s own database to store locations and content? But I’m not using that or linking to it, correct?
