Name: The name you enter here will appear as a selection for users when they access the Visual Portal. By default Visual Portal names are listed in alphabetical order which is why some users opt to use numbers as a prefix.
Description: The description is displayed on the Manage Layouts page shown in the screen shot of step 2, Select Edit.
Portal Layout Style: This setting controls whether the Visual Portals are displayed in two columns or three columns. You will want to consider the size of the chart you plan to display when you select this option since the display of three columns will result in a smaller sized portlet.
Share with: This selection allows you to share your Visual Portal with other users in PowerSteering. If the Visual Portal is not shared it will not be visible to anyone by you.
Editable by sharees: When you share a Visual Portal with another user they will not be able to edit the settings for that Visual Portal unless this check box is selected.
