This guide will walk you through the details of the addon, its pricing, and how to enable and configure it for your app.
Note that this was previously referred to as the External User Add-on

Understanding the Client Portal Add-on Pricing

The Client Portal Add-on offers an affordable solution for businesses looking to manage the costs of their client portal. Pricing for the addon is as follows:
  • PRO Plan: $119 per month for the first 100 clients, and an additional $99 per month for each subsequent 100 clients.
  • BUSINESS Plan: $179 per month for the first 100 clients, and an additional $129 per month for each subsequent 100 clients.

Enabling the External User Addon

To enable the Client Portal Add-on, follow these steps:
  1. 1.
    Navigate to your app's Login settings.
  2. 2.
    Locate the Client Portal Add-on section.
  3. 3.
    Turn on the addon by clicking the toggle button.

Configuring the Client Portal Add-on

Once the addon is enabled, you'll need to specify which users are considered internal users (part of your team). To do this, follow these steps:
  1. 1.
    In the Client Portal Add-on section, enter the domain name of your team's email addresses.
  2. 2.
    Your own email domain will be included by default. For example, if your email is [email protected], all active users with @noloco.io email addresses will be counted as internal users. Any users with the 'Data Admin', 'Team Member', or 'Builder' role will be automatically counted as internal users, regardless of their email domain.
  3. 3.
    Once enabled and configured, you will be charged the monthly cost of the addon, and the price for any additional active client users over 100 users.

Understanding Internal and External Client Users

The remaining users not classified as internal users will be counted as client users. The difference between internal and client users is as follows:
  • Internal Users: Team members, data admins, and builders or anyone else who accesses the app with an email address from your company's domain name.
  • Client Users: Clients, customers, partners, external contractors, and freelancers who access the app but do not belong to your organisation, and have an external email address.
The Client Portal Add-on provides an effective solution for businesses that require a large number of clients to access their apps on an infrequent basis. By enabling and configuring the add-on, you can manage the costs associated with your client portal more efficiently and ensure that clients or customers who need access to your app can have it without breaking the bank.
