How do I make my ePortfolio private?
There are three different privacy settings. Changing the privacy settings for one of your ePortfolios will not affect the privacy settings of any other ePortfolios you have created.
Private ePortfolios can not be found by performing an internet search. If you are changing your setting from Publicto Private, it could take several days for the search engine to "learn" that your ePortfolio should not to surface on the search engine. Please be patient if you are concerned about search engine results. Please note that if you outright delete your ePortfolio, it will take the search engine much longer to "learn" what to do with your information if it was previously public.
Select the desired ePortfolio, go to the top right of the page, and click on Portfolio Tools -> Settings.
Scroll down the page until you see Permissions.
Under Permissions, click Private. ePortfolios that are 'Private' will only be viewable by the administrator/owner when logged into a digication account.
- If you are planning on using your ePortfolio on your resume or LinkedIn account, you must make set Permissions to Public.
When you are done changing your permissions, scroll down to the bottom left of the page and click Save.
