Customer portals are special app projects that are available as a web app in a browser. A portal doesn't serve the employees of your organization - it serves your customers (defined in the contact entity). Your contacts can log in to your portal and access limited organization data that's relevant for them.

Customer portals are available on the Resco Cloud backend for organizations of the type Resco Inspections or Resco Field Service.

    • Configure the home screen, reorder, add, or remove menu items.
    • Do all kinds of additional configuration as usual for app projects.
  5. Save everything and publish the portal project.

Enabling portal access for contacts

Before your customers can access the portal that you prepared for them, you have to grant them access. You have two options for how to do this: using the Manager's Experience, or using the Admin Console.

Using the Manager's Experience

  1. Go to Contacts and edit the contact who needs portal access.
  2. Enter a valid email address and click Enable Portal Access, then click Save.

Your contact receives an email with login instructions.

Note You can also use multiselection: click and hold on a contact in the list to enable multiselection, then select the contacts and click Enable Portal Access.

Using the Admin Console

  1. Start the Admin Console and go to Data > Manage Data.
  2. Click the Contact entity and go to the contact for who you want to enable portal access.
  3. Verify that the email address is correctly set up, check Portal Access, then click Save.

Your contact receives an email with login instructions.
