Customer & employee portals
With customer & employee portals, you can create your own personalized start pages for your customers and employees.
You can find this feature under the menu item Customers & Employee Portals in the sidebar.
After you have clicked on the menu item, the following view opens:
Here you click on "Add"
Now you have the option to choose between different ready-made templates or to create one yourself.
If you choose an empty template or the demo layout, you can select and install the widgets yourself.
Click on the Add widgets button, then you can easily build your template from a wide variety of widgets according to your wishes using drag-and-drop.
In the next picture, you can see a rough overview of the available widgets:
The widget content can be completely customized, you can see an example text section here that you can edit as usual, you can add images, links, emojis, etc. and completely personalize the content.
Important: Always save manually when you have finished editing and you want to accept the result. We haven't built in automatic saving so that you can edit and try things out in the portal. This way you don't run the risk of changing portals that are already live and you can always go back to the original
