Question : At our Credit Union, we let our employees create "My Pages" and we have told them to put things on there like the "My Submitted Help Desk Requests" island and "My Portal Alerts." Then, when I was attending a meeting with another Credit Union, they seemed to have an All Staff My Page. What are those and how do I set one up?
Answer : Oh yeah!! Making a centralized spot for all of the "My" Islands is a great best practice! We have so many groups that have moved to this idea - maybe some of them can share here?But here's what you need to know to get started:
Thing One : My Portal Alerts, My Group Announcements, and My Submitted Help Desks are just three examples - there are literally over a dozen that you COULD use! Your portal "knows" who is logged in. Any Island that is a "My" Island will only display information relevant to that user - even if the island is on the same page! Check out our examples below:
Amy Anderson logs into the Portal and visits the page that has "My Alerts" She has a few alerts. this is what she sees:
Now I will log into the exact same page (check the URL, it is the same) and my alerts are different than Amy's.
So - no, you don't have to have a separate "My Page" for every employee! They can all go to ONE page!
Here's an example from our friends at GLCU. They put a few different "My Islands" into a Tabbed Island :
You could even incorporate this into an Employee Corner, like we did in our Demo Portal! (two screenshots)
Has your group done a "My Islands" Page? Show us here!
