You can see your customer portal by clicking on your name, preview customer apps. This will open a new browser tab with a sample website, Here, you can see the widget embedded into that website. And the second tab in that widget is the portal. Here, your customers will see a list of their tickets. They can click to view details and they can discuss them with you. They can even submit new ones by clicking new.
