To add a portlet

  1. On the Navigation Tree, click Portlets, and then select Portlets.

  2. Click clip0002 on the Portlets page. The Portlet page appears.

  3. Enter a unique name of the new portlet in the Name field.

  4. Enter any text defining the portlet in the Description field. This step is optional.

  5. Enter the full URL to the portlet item on the Panopticon Workbooks in the Url field.

Note: This URL is made by combining the base URL of the portlet group to which the portlet is added and the URL of the portlet itself (i.e. the name of the workbook). Therefore, you can also specify only a unique name that identifies the workbook.

  1. To save the new portlet and close the page, click Save.

  2. The system saves the new portlet to the database and displays the updated Portlets page.

  3. To save the new portlet and open it  immediately in the editing mode for assigning portlet access rights, click the Save/Edit button. For more information on how to assign portlet access rights, see Steps 4-8 in "Editing a Portlet".

  4. To clear all the fields, click Clear.

  5. To close the Portlet page without saving, click Cancel. Keep in mind that no changes will be saved

NOTE: After you have added the portlet, you have to assign access rights for it (see Editing a Portlet, steps 4-8), as well as assign it to a portlet group.
