Extensions

Connect anything with Extensions

While Modules provide a powerful foundation for any business, you can use Extensions to embed tools you already use. You can add global Extensions where all clients see the same thing (like a calendar booker) or add client-specific extensions (like project dashboards). Extensions show up on the sidebar and have a custom name and icon.

Project tracking

Connect Kanban boards from tools like Airtable and Monday.com to give your clients real-time visibility on projects.

Dashboards

Connect dashboards from tools like Google Data Studio, Google Sheets, Databox, and Tableau. Instead of manually sending out reports via email, connect your dashboards and give clients real-time access.

Schedulers

Connect Calendly or another scheduling tool to make it easy for clients to schedule time with you directly in your portal. If you have different tiers of clients, you can connect different scheduling links for different customer groups.

Customize the experience

Before inviting clients, there are many things you can do to set your portal up for success and make it fully reflect your brand. All of these steps are optional, so if you want to take Portal on a test run first, you can do that too.

Branding

In your settings, you can upload your brand assets including your logo and icon. You can also set your color scheme and setup a custom image on your login screen. All this information is automatically used for your portal, email notification customization, invoice customization, and more.

Custom domain

You can connect a custom domain and host your portal on your own website. For example, if you have acme.com, you can host your portal on portal.acme.com or clients.acme.com.

Invite your team

You can invite coworkers and grant them Staff or Admin access. And on the CRM you can assign team members to clients. That helps keep things organized and also limits who on your team gets notified about client actions.

Welcome message

Welcome messages are an important part of your portal. They are sent to clients automatically the first time they log in. They are a great way to introduce your business and to explain how you want your clients to use your portal.

Connect your marketing website

We recommend you add a link to your portal on your marketing website. For clients, it's a very natural experience to Google your business name, go to your website, and then click on the client login button.

Login

The most common setup is to add a “Client login” button on your marketing website navigation bar that links to your portal.

Sign Up

Optionally, if you have direct sign up enabled in your settings, you can also add a "Sign Up" button on your website that links to your portal sign up URL. If you do this, just be aware that visitors can create their own client accounts.

Launch your portal

Once you’re ready to launch, navigate to the CRM page and create your first client. If you want to do a test run first, you can invite yourself as a client (using another email).

  • By default, new clients are invited by email
  • In the actions menu, you can also ‘copy invite link’ to share the link manually
  • If Messaging is enabled, new clients will be greeted with an automated welcome message
Build vs. buy

Building and maintaining a custom portal is more difficult that in seems

Many businesses attempt to build home-grown custom portals. At first the launch goes well, but over time most organizations realize that maintenance work, implementing improvements, and maintaining security become expensive distractions. 

Portal offers the functionality you need to quickly get started today but supports integrations and extendability as you scale. In addition, our engineering team is ready to help with custom API integrations.
