Portlet Display and Functionality

This page applies to: Conga Contracts

The fields that display in a portlet can be managed to display only the information that is most relevant to you. Some portlets contain multiple tabs to provide alternative views of stored data, or icons that allow you to perform tasks from the portlet. Other portlets contain a Properties icon that allows you to customize the type of information displayed in the portlet.
