Direct Linking Inside the Portal

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The UT Portal Link Generator module allows you to share a link to a specific area within the Portal to others.

The module is accessible from your My Page and will convert links to the Portal so that users are prompted to log in with their UTORid and then be brought to the specific item or area after signing in.

To add the UT Portal Link Generator module to your My Page:

  1. Go to https://portal.utoronto.ca and sign in.
  2. On your My Page, click on Add Module in the top left.
  3. In the search box in the top left, type in "UT Portal Link Generator".
  4. From the search results on the right, click on Add beneath the UT Portal Link Generator listing.

To generate a link:

  1. Go to the item or area in the Portal that you would like to link to.
  2. Right click on the item and select Copy link address or Copy link location. This name may be different depending on your browser and device.
  3. Go back to your My Page and locate the UT Portal Link Generator module.
    Note: If you do not see this module, please make sure you have added it according to the instructions above.
  4. In the text box, paste the link to the Portal that you would like to share with others, and click Generate.
  5. In the Generated Link text box, copy the direct link and paste it into the desired message.

NOTE: This module will only accept links to the Portal, starting with portal.utoronto.ca, http://portal.utoronto.ca, or https://portal.utoronto.ca.

NOTE: It is important to copy the link from the right click contextual menu rather than from the browser's address bar.
