The second group of placeholders you might be using quite a lot is related to your users and how they access your portal. Remember, users refer to both Requestors as well as your Customers in Freshdesk.
What they mean
|portal.user.name||string||Full Name of the user using the support portal|

Now that you have your basics covered, you probably want to start defining the layout of each of your portal pages. It’s useful to think of your portal as consisting of three parts:
- The Forums where your customers share problems and ideas with each other
- The Solutions where customers learn from your knowledge
- The Tickets page where customers submit new tickets or check out the status of existing ones.
Here's the list of placeholders for other categories such as, General Portal Information, Forums, Access to Solutions, Accessing Attachments and Using Snippets for critical behaviour.
