Wiki Article widget
What is it?
Use the Wiki Article widget to highlight the contents of a single wiki article on a page of space. The Wiki Article widget is a great alternative to the HTML Content widget for displaying basic text and images.
If your organization has a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), that you have documented as an article in an SOP wiki channel, you may want to bring attention to this article by presenting it on the primary page or space of the digital workplace. This way you can place it front and center for people to see, yet it lives in a properly structured wiki channel amongst other similar content. This is also a good solution because you do not have to copy the original content, which avoids information from becoming out of sync.
