Changing portlet settings

You can change the settings of each portlet listed in the Edit Layout portlet. These options are available from the drop-down menu on each portlet shown in the container.

About this task

Each of these options opens a new window for changing your settings for the portlet. Depending on your access privileges, some of these options may not be available to you.

Procedure

  • Select Personalize this portlet to personalize a portlet. The updates you make here will only change the look of the portlet for you.
  • Select Edit shared settings for this portlet to change the default look of a portlet for all users. The updates you make here will affect all users who view the portlet on a particular page. The changes will not be reflected on any instances of the portlet that appear on other pages.
  • Select Configure to change the default look of a portlet for all users across all pages. The updates you make here will affect all users who view the portlet on any page.
