The Portfolios (Home) Page

When you log into Portfolio, you will automatically be directed to the Portfolios page. The top menu bar contains general application tools, while the main window is used to sort, filter, and navigate the list of all portfolios to which the user has permission.

The top menu bar contains the following from left to right:

  • Administrator tools (Admin accounts only)
  • Odata exports and password management
  • System notifications
  • User account dropdown:
    • Verify the software version
    • Log out of the application
  • Link to the help documentation

From the main window, the user is able to:

  • Create new portfolios
  • Open preexisting portfolios
  • Rename preexisting portfolios
  • Create copies of portfolios
  • Delete portfolios individually or in bulk
  • Save portfolios to a pre-defined or new collection
  • Manage user-defined portfolio collections

Create a New Portfolio

To create a new portfolio, click the Create Portfolio button near the top of the window. Enter a unique name for your portfolio in the Name field and click the OK button. Your new portfolio will open automatically.

Open a Portfolio

To open a portfolio, click on its name (in the Portfolio column of the table).

Searching, Filtering and Sorting

The Search Portfolios field near the top of the window can be used to search for portfolios with names matching (or partially matching) your search term.

Additionally, you can sort and filter values in the columns of the table. To sort the values in a column, click on the column's header cell.

  • The first time you click on a header cell, values in the column will be sorted alphabetically (for text values), from smallest to largest (for numeric values), or from oldest to newest (for date values).
  • The second time you click on a header cell, values in the column will be sorted in the opposite direction.
  • The third time you click on a header cell, the sorting will be deactivated and values will be displayed in their default order.

You can apply sorting to multiple columns at the same time. Hold the SHIFT key on your keyboard while selecting columns to activate more than one sort at the same time. All columns include additional filtering options. Hover your cursor over the column's name and click the Filter icon () to enable these filters.

Renaming, Copying, and Deleting Portfolios

When you hover over a portfolio's row (or select its row), a three-dot menu will appear on the left side of the portfolio checkbox, offering the Rename, Copy and Delete menu.

To rename a portfolio:

  1. Select Rename, enter a new name for your portfolio in the Name field, and click OK.
  2. To create a copy of a portfolio, select Copy, enter a name for the copied portfolio in the Name field, and click OK.
  3. Copied portfolios include all of the dashboards, scenarios, data and Expressions found in the original portfolio.
  4. To delete a portfolio, select Delete. You will be prompted to confirm the deletion.
  5. Be cautious when deleting portfolios — this process cannot be undone.
  6. Click OK to delete the portfolio.

Portfolios may be deleted in bulk by selecting multiple checkboxes and then Delete Portfolios. The user will be prompted to confirm the action. Deletion will be skipped for any portfolio which the user does not have Full Access permission.

Portfolio Collections

Pre-built collections provide the user with quick filtering options. These include:

  1. Recent: Five most recently viewed portfolios by the current user

  2. My Portfolios: all portfolios to which the user has Full Access

  3. Shared with Me: all portfolios to which the user has been assigned View or Modify permission

The user may also define their own custom collections. Select any number of portfolios and click Add to Collection. Select an existing collection, or create a new one. User-defined collections appear on the left below the pre-built ones.

Portfolios may be removed from a collection by selecting and clicking Remove from Collection. The active collection may be renamed or deleted using the three-dot menu at top right:
