Widgets are containers that display content that is either created within the Widget itself or pulled in from another content source, such as a Channel, that lives somewhere else in your digital workplace. Use Widgets to provide a window into content, improve navigation to important locations, display personally relevant information, and add other utility to where they are placed. Widgets are added to Pages, Spaces, and Dashboards.
Additional Widget resources
A Widget's title and description fields support multiple languages. Only enabled languages are available. For more information about language support, check out the article Languages and translation.
Content Widgets connect to Channels within a digital workplace. A common use of this type of widget is to aggregate and display the most recent content from multiple Channels. These Widgets do not change where the content is located and only act as windows into the connected Channels. Because of this, the displayed content still maintains the Access Rules applied to the underlying content. Users need at least Read level access to content in order to view it in a Widget.
