Can I make shapefile portal that re-directs to regional apps using Storymaps

I would like to use an over-arching Storymap/Web App (ei. a basemap of Canada) as a "portal" to sub-level, regional storymaps I've created.


For example, I have several storymaps made of the different provinces of Canada. I want to create one over-arching storymap that simply consists of a polygon shapefile layer of each province. When the user clicks on the province of interest, I want the app to redirect the user to the regional storymap I've made for that province.


I'm trying to figure out how to do this with what I know of Storymaps and Web App Builder and am hitting a wall. Do you know a way this would be possible? 


I know I can link apps I make into the text of a storymap, but I was really hoping to integrate that link into a visual shapefile instead. Similarly, I'm aware of the option of making tabbed storymaps for each province but what I really want here is a visual portal. 


Thanks for reading.
