One way to add Portals
to your Dashboard
is to subscribe to them.
Hover over the Dashboard menu tab, then click the sub-menu for 'Portal Subscriptions'. (Note: If you cannot see Portal Subscriptions, please contact your site Administrator to get permission to the menu).
Click the checkboxes next to the portals that are of interest to you, then click save. If your user group does not have permission to see that area of the site, the portal window will be blank, and you should delete it.
