User Guide
Teradata Viewpoint provides portlets to manage and monitor systems. A portal page is a virtual work space where you decide which portlets to display and how to arrange them on the page. Examples of ways to organize your work include defining a page for each system being monitored, or for each type of query or user. The currently selected page is called the active page.

A portal page has two columns that can be resized. After adding portlets to the portal, you can drag and drop portlets into either column. You can resize the width of the portal columns on each page by dragging the column divider until the minimum size of a column is reached. Portlets that can be horizontally resized will expand to fill the width of the column. Portlets that cannot be horizontally resized are not affected by resizing the portal columns. Resizing the browser window adjusts the columns proportionally unless a column is at its minimum size. Not all Viewpoint portlets and products support resizing or two-column layout.

A shared page contains portlets that are applicable to your role. The Teradata Viewpoint Administrator controls the type of shared page you have access to and can discuss limitations you may have with read-only and mandatory pages. Your role may be prevented from adding portlets, deleting portlets, moving portlets on a page, as well as other functions you may have been accustomed to doing with regular portal pages.
