Can I grant portal access to multiple contact persons ( under the same contact ) with the same email id?

No. When a contact has multiple contact person(s), client portal access can be given to each person ONLY IF :

Each contact person has a different email id.

When I comment on a document and mark the “Display in client portal” option, will my customer receive an email?

Yes, they will if you’ve enabled this under settings.

  • Go to Settings – Preferences – Branding – Portal Settings
  • Check the box Send a notification email when I comment on invoices/estimates and hit the Save button at the bottom of the page.

Your customers will now receive notifications when you comment on their estimates and invoices.

My client is trying to enter his Zoho credentials for the portal but it is not going through. What’s the issue?

No, your client’s zoho credentials are not to be used in order to log into the client portal.

When you send a portal invite to the email address of your client and they accept it, they will be requested to create a new password using which they can log into the portal you’ve invited them to. Their Zoho credentials has no relevance to this, and even clients without a Zoho account can log into your portal using their email ID and the password they created.
