On your organization's Public Portal, it's possible to feature items such as Meetings & Events on the home page for your residents. In order to do this, you must have "Show featured items on home page" toggled-on within Initial Page Display in the Public Portal Settings.
Once this is enabled, residents will see featured items on your home page, including Meetings. In order to set a Meeting to "featured" and have it show on the home page, head into the Meeting editor and select "More Display Options". Then, toggle-on "Feature on Public Portal". Also make sure that the toggle immediately above - "Automatically display on project live site, meetings portal, and embedded listings" is also enabled. This screenshot shows you the correct settings for a featured Meeting:
On the home page of Public Portal, the order of Featured Meetings is determined as follows:
Manually featured by an admin (this process)
If multiple are featured, sorted by date (soonest first)
Non-featured Meetings, sorted by date (soonest first)
