प्रश्नोत्तर

Can I use this plugin without installing WooCommerce?

Yes. WooCommerce is not required, but the Pro version of the plugin does integrate with WooCommerce to allow invoice payments to be processed (optional setting).

Can I provide private files and documents for my clients to access and download?

Yes. Constellation Client Portal is designed to allow you to attach files to private posts. This allows you to present private private files and/or private posts to clients.

Can I provide private posts and information to my clients?

Yes. The client files and invoices allow you to upload/attach files (optional), as well as post freeform content via a WYSIWYG post editor.

Can I only display client pages to a specific client when they are logged into my site?

Yes. By default only users that are logged in have access to client pages and files. Further, only users that have been added to a specific company, are able to view pages and files for that company.

Can I automatically redirect clients to their client page when they log into my site?

Yes. The Pro version allows you to enable automatic login redirection and choose to redirect clients to their respective client page when they log in. This option should only be enabled if you do not already have login redirection enabled through another plugin.

Can I automatically change an invoice status to paid when an order is paid in WooCommerce?

Yes. The Pro version allows you to enable functionality that automatically changes an invoice status to paid when it is paid in WooCommerce, or when the WooCommerce order status changes to “commpleted” (depending on your preference).

Can I restrict access to specific documents and pages for specific users or roles?

Yes. The Pro version allows for more granular access restriction by specific user or role, as well as by category.

Can I add file and invoice shortcodes to any WordPress page or post?

No. In order to provide better access restriction, file and invoice shortcodes can only be added to Client Pages, which are in turn assigned to specific companies/users.

Can I customize the layout and design of client pages?

Yes. Client pages can be laid out and designed like any other page in WordPress.

Will my theme’s page builder work with client pages?

This is dependent on the theme, and Constellation Client Portal has no control over this functionality. However, some themes may work out of the box with client pages. If your theme’s page builder does not work with client pages, check with the theme developer to see if they have a method for extending the page builder to custom post types (the client page post type is “accp_client_pages”).

Can I customize the look of post lists displayed on the front-end?

Yes. The Pro version allows you to customize the look of each list independently. The pro version also allows you to display post lists in list or grid layouts.
