Introduction to Portal

Portal is your guide to all aspects of Students Offering Support that directly affect your position. Most job tools (such as course management and Exam-AID schedules) can be found in the Navigation Bar while upcoming tasks can be found in Task bar. The tabs along the top of the homepage can direct you to various resources that you may find useful, such as the E-Manual.


  • Your login and password: your first initial and last name (i.e. jsmith for John Smith)

News Feed (home page)

  • Feed and Create a Post: Much like the Facebook news feed, this section shows current events, videos, and information from around the organization. Important information from the Head Office is often shared via the News Feed. Presidents and VPs can also create a post.

Navigation  Bar (left side)

  • Your Profile: Picture, personal description, contact info, and hours log. To edit information, click “manage” in the right corner of the profile box

You can manage your tasks, see completed tasks, and create multi-task lists by clicking “manage” in the upper right of the task box.
