There are many reasons a district may wish to hide applications in a Portal. From scheduling a launch, to hiding resources during testing periods, Clever's visibility settings allow districts to manage application access with ease.
How do I hide applications in the Portal?
Step 1: Navigate to the Clever Portal for your district and click on "Customize Portal"
Step 2: Locate the application you wish to hide and click on "Visibility"
Step 3: Select "Hide"
Step 4: Select the user type you wish to hide the resource from. Want to hide the resource from multiple user types? No problem! We will show you how do this in Step 6.
Step 5: Select the Start and End Dates for hiding the application. If you wish, you can select time frame down to the minute. To adjust the specific time, click on "12:00AM" in the text box and enter your desired time. This feature is especially useful for big releases!
Step 6: To hide the application from an additional resource type, click "Hide for another user type". You will have the option to select unique Start and End Dates for each user type.
In the example below, Teachers need access to the application on March 5th for training, however students will not be using the application until March 12th. With Clever's visibility tool, you can fully control the rollout of applications for all users.
Step 7: When complete, select "Hide application"
Step 8: Finally, click "Publish Changes" to save your updates.
How do hidden applications appear in the Portal?
When hiding is enabled, the application icon will display in the district admin portal with a banner that indicates it is hidden from users.
In the student/teacher/school admin portal, the application icon will be fully hidden until the End Date is reached.
