Portal Groups allow you to collate multiple, separate, Portals into one location, sorting them into tabs within a single page.
Tailoring Portal Groups
Any Users who have visibility of the Portal Group must also have visibility of each Portal it contains, and the Portal group itself, in order to get full access. This fact can be used to tailor what a User sees in a Portal Group, simply by restricting visibility of certain Portals.
Below is what the Site Administrator sees in the Feedback and Incidents Portal Group, as expected they can see all five tabs.
Visibility of all these Portal tabs was granted through the Portals themselves. To grant visibility of Portals, open the Portal by selecting "Edit Layout of this portal group" and select "Who can see this Portal?" from the title menu, which takes you to the Portal's Owners page. Use the options for the Owners panel to add or remove Users.
Seen above is the Feedback - Incidents Dashboard Portal.
Tailored Portal - Example
Two Users, James and Sandra, are both active users of the Feedback Module, and would benefit from this Portal. However, James hasn't yet been trained to handle incidents, and Sandra doesn't have clearance to deal with FOI Requests. Because of this, neither of them should be allowed to see all the tabs in this Portal group.
As such, we will restrict their views.
- In James's case, we'll give him visibility of all but the Feedback-Incidents Dashboard Portal, so he sees the below:
- In Sandra's case, we've given her the same visibility of the Complaints Portals as James, but given her visibility of Feedback-Incidents Dashboard and not Feedback-FOI Dashboard:
