Portal Configuration Options

As of July 12, 2021, this "Learn Veracross" site has been deprecated.  It will remain live through December 2022, but will no longer be updated. All knowledge content has moved to the new Veracross Community.  Please update your bookmarks.

Here is the new version of this article in the Veracross Community.


Each portal has a number of configuration options available on the Configuration tab of the Portal detail screen. Most are listed in groups, the first of which enables the option in general, followed by particular configuration choices. Note that with a couple exceptions, enabling options does not turn them on automatically in any given portal, rather it simply enables the links to work if added.

Some options are read-only and are grayed out, visible for reference purposes.
