Portal Features





The Qixol Promo Portal is where users can manage all aspects of the Organisation and Companies.


When logging in to the Portal, the Organisation Dashboard is displayed, where the required company can be opened.  If the organisation only has one company, the company is automatically opened.  To switch company at any time, select the Organisation Dashboard from the company menu towards the top right of the Portal page next to the Timezone selector.



Layout and Navigation


The Navigation Area on the left of the Portal allows the user to quickly jump to functions.  The Navigation Area can be collapsed by selecting the right edge.


Towards the top right of the Portal is the User Menu from which the user can change their password or logout.  Next to this is the Timezone selector, where the timezone used for all displayed dates and times in the Portal can be selected.  Lastly in this area, the Company Menu allows the user to switch companies within the organisation, or go to the Organisation Dashboard.


Tip: when switching company, hold down the CTRL key on the keyboard to open the current function in the company being switched to.


To see all available functions, go to Configuration


When viewing a function, the Breadcrumbs shown near the top of the page provide a quick way to jump back to the parent of the current function. 



Pinned and Recent Items


Pin the most used functions to speed up navigating around the Portal.  To pin a function, navigate to that function and select the Pin button towards the top of the page, next to the breadcrumbs.  Pinned items are shown in the Navigation Area under Pinned.  To remove a pinned item, select the X next to it in the Pinned list.  The Pinned Items list can include functions and lists, as well as data items (i.e. a specific promotion, coupon or product).


The recent items list shows the data items that have been viewed since login.  The recent items does not include functions or lists - these can be added to the Pinned Items if required, and is intended to simplify the user jumping back to a recently viewed data item.






The Qixol Promo Portal allows the user to have a preview look at data items by hovering (or selecting) the image next to the data item.  A QuickView is then presented showing key information about the data item.  This allows the user to quickly check key information about data items, without navigating away from the function they are currently using.




Grid Tools


Most grids in the Qixol Promo Portal support advanced tools to help with searching and managing the data being presented.   Columns can be re-ordered by dragging the column to the required position.
