Your customizations are impacted when you publish or reset changes using the no-code designer.
If you are on Portal V1
If you have not made changes to the default Portal V1, you can seamlessly switch to the new designer.
All customizations made to Portal V1 will be lost when you publish the portal with the new designer. It will replace Portal V1, which is currently live to your employees.
Customizations retained: The portal logo and the URL it redirects to.
For MSP customers: Publishing changes on any portal using the no-code designer will replace the parent and child portals with Portal V2 . Customizations will be impacted similar to service desk portals.
If you are on Portal V2
If you have not made changes to the default Portal V2 then you can switch to the new designer seamlessly.
All customizations made to the home page and header on your Portal V2 will be lost when you publish the portal with the new designer. The portal designed using the new designer will replace the live portal.
Changes that are retained:
Logo and Linkback URL
Colors and fonts - all stylesheet changes
Head/footer/ layout changes
Note: Header will not be retained. You can quickly redesign this using the no-code portal designer.
For MSP customers: Publishing changes on any portal using the no-code designer will replace only the portal currently being redesigned with the new changes. Customizations will be impacted similar to service desk portals.
Customizations retained and impact observed
The no-code designer is built to design Portal V2 templates. Therefore, all publish and reset actions will replace Portal V1 with Portal V2.
*When you’re on the v2 portal, your existing portal customizations are migrated to the no-code designer for you to start with. You will, however, lose the changes made to the home page and header section.
