Client Portal is a one-stop agency-client collaboration tool found in the CRM tool. Client Portal allows you to create interactive and secure white-label portals, where reports and tasks can be shared and accessed between agency and client.
Now, instead of collecting data manually and processing it, the agency can create a client portal in a few clicks, select the required information, and then send the link and password credentials to your client.
This tool allows you to share various reports from dozens of Semrush tools and Google tools and also allows you to share tasks within the portal. Clients are able to create new tasks and easily approve tasks straight from the portal. Even if your clients don’t have access to Semrush, they will be able to see the updates as often as they need.
The Client Portal feature is available as a part of the Agency Growth Kit.
AGK Start users can create up to 5 client portals, AGK Scale users can create up to 20 portals, and AGK Advanced users are able to create an unlimited number of portals.
What’s inside the Client Portal?
The Reports section contains Reports created by an agency with the help of My Reports which have been linked to the specific client in CRM.
After the clients log in with the given credentials, they see the dashboards that the agency had shared with them and the report for the last generated period. The previous time periods will also be available to compare the data.
You can set the report intervals so that they update automatically in the portal. There’s also an option to download reports as PDF files.
You can also access the Client Portal free demo page and see what's inside the product from agency clients' perspectives.
Agencies can share the tasks from the CRM client card via a Client Portal so that the client can see the scope of work, current task statuses, deadlines, etc. Agencies can choose which tasks will be shown to their client and which not.
Clients can look through those tasks in the Portal and create new tasks. Clients can also comment on existing tasks, creating a space for communication between an agency and a client inside the Portal.
With the task approval feature, clients are notified when they need to approve a task. By having this workflow and keeping tasks in one place, the client experience is improved whilst also optimizing the workflow of the agency by streamlining communication.
Also, there’s an option to assign a task to a responsible person. It simplifies communication in collaborative projects and allows to track tasks distributed between team members.
Please note that tasks can be assigned only after sharing a client with a view or edit permission. And, if a client is shared with anyone with edit permissions, they can also assign that client tasks.
Additionally, there’s a filter on CRM task pages for convenient interaction:
Once a team member is assigned to a task, an email notification will be sent to the assigned person. Also, if any comment is added to a task, an owner, a manager and the person responsible for the task will be notified via email.
Client Portal on a Custom Subdomain*
For more customization, there is also an advanced feature of embedding client portals into the agency’s own website.
This way you can integrate client portals to your own domain to make it look like your own custom solution, providing a seamless and consistent experience for your clients.
Your domain will be displayed in the URL of your client portals. When visiting portals, your clients will see your website URL instead of the default myinsights.io.
*Client Portal on a custom subdomain feature is available with the Agency Growth Kit Advanced plan.
