Portfolios FAQ

Who can see my Portfolio?

Anyone you share the url with in the Organization will be able to access your Portfolio. Once they visit the url, it will automatically show up in their recents section in Portfolios view. If any of your projects in the Portfolio are private, they will see a notification at the bottom of the screen letting them know some projects are private.
