1. Feature Overview
This article shows you how to add multiple web pages (home page, contact us page, application dashboard, etc.) to your LeadSquared Portals, using the Portal Designer. You can also make logins compulsory to view certain pages. This can be used for application and user profile pages.
Portals Designer is part of the Portals feature. To enable Portals on your account, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Getting Started
To create a new page –
- On the Portal Designer page, on the top-left corner, click the icon.
- On the Pages tab, click Add New Page.
- Enter relevant details in the following fields –
|Name||The name of the page. This is visible on the Portal Designer. This field is mandatory.|
|Title||The title of the page. This is visible on the published portal, and can be seen by anyone who’s on the website. This field is mandatory.|
|Parent Page||The parent page to which the new page will be linked to. You can select the Parent Page from the list of pages available on the dropdown.|
|URL||The page’s URL slug. This will be visible in the browser, and the URL can be used to access the page directly. For example, the URL of a ‘Contact Us’ page can be written down as ‘contact-us’. This field is mandatory.|

4. Once you’ve entered all the necessary details, click Add. You’ll get a message saying ‘Page Created Successfully’.
You can create a new webpage by cloning an existing portal page. This will retain the structure of the original page, and you can change the content within the page as per your requirement. To clone a portal page –

- On the Add New Page tab, enter the relevant details, and click Add. You’ll get a message stating, “Page Created Successfully”.
Here you can customize the font and accent colours for text content across all pages. Changes made here are applied at the global level, eliminating the need for you to customize each section on each page. It helps apply uniform and consistent fonts and colours across the entire portal.
- Favicon – Upload a relevant icon for the portal, which will show up as the favicon on a browser window. To add a favicon, click Choose File.
- Accent Colour – Select the font colour for all the form section headers and buttons on all the pages, from the gradient screen, or enter the hex code for a specific colour.

You can also add up to four custom fonts of your choice. Click Choose Fonts to import the font file. Only the following custom fonts file formats are accepted – .ttf, .otf, and .woff.
- Analytics and Third-party Tracking Scripts – Google Analytics Script, Google Tag Manager, FaceBook Pixel, etc.
- Portal Component Modifications – If default configurations are not present in the designer, you can use custom scripts to modify UI elements on the page (e.g., form length, form fields, etc.).
- Perform Actions on Lead Engagement – Show a popup on lead login, post an analytics event on lead form submission, etc.

You can add ready to use application blocks to your portal. To know more, see How to Show Activity Status in Portal Dashboard.
Each application can be added as a content block that shows some basic information related to the application (name, type, created on date, etc.) the status (pending, completed, etc.), and available actions (view, continue, etc.). Once an application block is added you must integrate an activity or opportunity. The associated activity/opportunity form will be launched, and the user can fill in the relevant details.
- Hover your cursor on a particular section, then click the Add Block button.
- From the Add Block pop-up, click Application, and then select a relevant layout for your page.
- Select either an activity or an opportunity that you’re looking to integrate. Fields corresponding to the selected activity or opportunity will become for mail merge within the application items.
- After you’ve selected the item to integrate, select the activity or opportunity type.
- Then, configure the Display Rules and Application Properties.
6.1 Display Rules
Display rules allow you to configure which application boxes you want to display to your users, based on field values or combination of field values. In this example, we’re configuring two application boxes, one to be displayed when the application status is ‘Inactive’, and the other one to be displayed when the status is ‘Active’.
- Configure the application item.
- Set the mail merge values you want to display within the application item. For example, status, created on date, etc. To add mail merge values, you’ll have to begin with ‘@’.
- Next, set the action buttons you want to display. For example, on a pending application, the button can display ‘Finish Application’ or ‘Continue Application’, and direct the user to the application form.
- Once the application items are configured, set the Display Rules.
- Stay on the Application Item box, and from from the right panel, under General, click Display Rules.
- On the Dashboard Item Display Rules pop-up, select the field and the values based on which you want the application items to be displayed. You can add a combination of fields and values, based on which the items can be displayed. You can choose to apply All the rules or Any of the rules.
- Once you’ve set the display rules, you must then configure the application properties.
6.2 Application Properties
- Integrate – From this dropdown, you can integrate the application with an activity or an opportunity.
- Activity/Opportunity Name – From the dropdown, select the relevant activity/opportunity name.
- Accent Color – Select the colour of the call-to-action button and tabs from the gradient screen, or enter the hex code for a specific colour.
- Lead (Only for preview) – You can preview the application for a specific lead. To do so, select the lead’s name from the dropdown.
- Opacity – This allows you to configure how opaque/transparent the card will be.
- Hide on Mobile – This allows you to hide the block on mobile devices.
The other application properties (such as Spacing & Dimensions, Border & Radius, Background, etc.) are the same as elsewhere within the portal designer. To know how to configure them, please refer to LeadSquared Portals Designer.
