PORTAL- A portal is a file storage space for your external guests that have been granted access by the account administrator. Portals are essentially the same as repositories except that portals are for external guests and repositories are for internal users. Unlike sending a file, files shared through a portal do not expire. Portals are accessible to guests via your file exchange site at is https://(companyname).leapfile.net By clicking on "File Portals". Each guest will only see the portals they have permission to access.
Setting up a portal is very easy -
- Create a portal and add files/folders
- Create guest account(s)
- Assign guest account to the portal
Guest accounts are different from contacts or user accounts
No notification email is sent to guests. You need to manually inform your guests about the portal login and updates
*Please note that the term users is defined typically as people who use LeapFILE within your company, whereas guests are typically your customers, vendors, and partners.
REPOSITORY- Repositories are essentially a file storage space for your internal users that have been granted access by the account administrator. Unlike sending a file, files shared through a repository do not expire. Each user will only see the repositories they have permission to access
