How to publish a new portal

Purpose of this article

You can create multiple portals to serve different audiences. This can come in handy when you have different usergroups and you want to show specific information to a specific usergroup and/or exclude users from seeing certain information. For example: you can create a portal for your students and a separate portal for your employees. 

This article explains how to publish a new portal. 

Note that creating a new portal is particularly useful when the entire layout of the portal needs to be different. If that's not the case, it's easier to work with permissions per widget/item/quicklink. 

How it's done

  1. Open your CMS > Organization Settings > Pages > Portal

  2. Go to your default portal,click on the three dots (1) and click on 'do something else' (2)

  3. Select 'copy'

  4. Select Organization Settings > Pages> Portal (1), uncheck 'relate to original' (2) and leave 'include descendants' checked (3)


  5. Click on 'copy'

  6. Now you can name your new portal, set permissions, apply custom theming and add extra/different widgets to the pages. Make sure you set the right permissions so that the right people get to see your new portal. 

  7. When you're done, the pages need to be published. Click on the three dots, select 'do something else' and choose 'publish' 

  8. Check both check boxes and click on 'publish'

  9. Your new portal is now published

  10. When you want to see your new portal and you have permissions to both your default portal and your new portal, the easiest thing to do is to enable the portal switcher. So you can easily switch between the portals. 
The new portal is only visible to those users that have permissions to see it.
