How do I create a portal for my clients?

With Animana you are able to create a portal where your clients can log in and view information such as attachments and their herd file. This is a handy tool for livestock veterinarians that are required to provide medical information and need to keep a logbook. This article will explain how to create a client portal for a client.

Before you start

  • The Client Portal can only be activated by the Animana Customer Support team. Please contact them first with the request to activate the Client Portal module.
  • Before associating a portal with a client, ensure the portal has been correctly set up.
  • Two emails need to be created, without which, you cannot proceed. These emails will be used to inform your client of their portal information:
    • One email should be a welcome message providing the portal login details.
    • The second email is used when a client needs to reset her/his password.
  • Note that the client portal will only display information from herd and equine files, not from the regular patient files.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. First, browse to a client and open the Clientdata tab:

  2. Now click on the Client Portal tab:

  3. Now select which email you want to send to your client making him aware that his account has been activated:

    Note that this email needs to be created in the Content Designer before creating the account!
  4. Click on Edit Account:

  5. Change the language to English and click Save:

  6. The portal is now activated for your client and they have been informed via email.
