Adding a custom gadget to a user portal

Updated on March 28, 2008

 This presentation is part of the Portals Overview Self-Study Course.


In this scenario, the client would like certain users to have the capability to create their own custom reports.   They would like to have a nice GUI Wizard to take them through the custom report generation.   The wizard should be located in the Monitoring Activity workspace.
Complete the following steps to resolve this requirement:

  1. Locate the portal rule you wish to update.
  2. Click on the "Tabs" tab.
  3. Expand the tab titled "Monitoring Activity."
  4. In the column labeled ‘wide," click the ‘Append Row’ icon.
  5. Add the gadget labeled "NewReport" in the first column.
  6. Add the text "Create a New Report" in the second column and ensure the box labeled "Expanded" is checked.

Test by logging on as a user with the appropriate access group.  The new gadget will appear.
