My Contacts Widget
What is it?
The My Contacts widget displays a list of your contacts in the community. Within each member’s profile is an option to add them as contact. Once someone becomes a contact, they will be displayed on a list in your profile. You can use a My Contacts widget to access your list of contacts from another page or space in the community. See the Contacts article for more information on how contacts work in Igloo.
If you have Dashboards enabled in your community, you can choose to add the My Contacts widget to your personal dashboard and easily connect with your contacts on a regular basis.
For communities that would like to add a personal touch to the homepage, a specific department, or an employee page, you can add a My Contacts widget which will only show the contacts chosen to be displayed in that space.
