How to ensure successful activation of portfolios? For example, eBooks have been ordered, portfolios have been activated, but their icon shows an inactive portfolio.


Ensure that the Full-Text Service for the Electronic Collection or individual portfolios is ACTIVE. 
Once activated, the icon activation flag changes, and the Primo ViewIt tab can display the service.
