User Interface

Civic Platform provides a common interface for users across an agency, yet also allows each user to personalize the interface to a certain extent. Your pages may display differently from other users, or from the examples in this guide. Additionally, the data and functions accessible to one user may not be available to another user. The pages that display depend on the Civic Platform configuration.

The basic Civic Platform interface consists of a console and main links. Each main link may include multiple portlets.

Portlets expose specific tasks and specific information in an encapsulated section of the page. Agency administrators can customize portlets and main links to group information and group tasks.
