The "Public Portal" settings is where you will be able to setup the "Storefront" site that public applicants will go to in order to apply for permits and licenses. Please note that the Storefront site is very different than the employee site.
In order to access the Public Portal settings, click on the settings icon in the bottom left corner of the page and then select "Public Portal" at the top of the page.
Once you are in the Public Portal settings, you have a few different options. This article will focus on the "Public Search" settings.
The public search settings is where you will be able to enable or disable the ability for the public to search for addresses and permits or license(s) within the community. If you do allow public access to record types, you have the ability to select which ones are allowed to be in searches and which ones are not.
• You can toggle the on and off switch in order to customize the search settings. Clicking the box next to the record type name will allow that record type to be available in searches. Record types without the checked box will not be in searches. Using the filter in the top right corner helps with finding record types quickly.
