Compatibility

As of version 5, Portals are packaged together in a single download for ease of installation. As a result, updates to the package may result in changes to some Portals and not others. The following table outlines which versions require an upgrade to obtain the latest features.

For example, if only Customer Portal 5.2 is installed, an upgrade to 5.3 is unnecessary as no new features for Customer Portal were added to 5.3.

Any Portal prior to version 5 may require data migration before it can be upgraded to the latest version. Speak with a Vision33 consultant for more information.
