    It would be good to access collaborative Story Maps from this portal too, i.e. from Groups?

      I am not sure I understand the question, but the new Story Map Crowdsource is not included in My Stories because it is still in beta. Any story map can be added to a group, and can be leveraged in group gallery apps.
