Important: in order to grant access to the Client Portal please ensure you have completed the setup and personalisation of your Client Portal first prior to setting up Portal Members. For more information on setting up your Client Portal Click Here.
Client Portal access is only given to a client when you create Portal Member logins for them, so you are in complete control over who gets to access your Client Portal.
There is no limit to the number of Client Portal Members you can set up for a specific client, and each login is permission controlled giving you the option to limit the visibility of some of the data if required.
