How to Modify a Portal
It is possible to customise the portal so that it has a consistent look and feel for the company using it. Branded images can be uploaded, colour themes chosen, and portal names changed. Only users with Admin logins will have access to carry out these changes.

- Go to HR > Portal Formatting
There are four options in the menu:

Changes made from any of these pages will be seen portal-wide and affect all users.
