Thanks for your question, I assume you mean Data Story - if so - the app must be unpublished, or you can duplicate the app - work on the data story in your workgroup stream, and then publish it again. When an app is published to a stream - it is in a read only type state and cannot be modified unless un-published.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
