With Custom Widgets, you can create Web Office widgets to serve purposes not covered by the default widgets.
The simplest way to build this content is with the Rich Text Editor, a TinyMCE Text Editor that has many of the text editing tools that you would find in Microsoft Word or Google Docs.
Adding a Custom Widget
|For testing purposes, add your custom widget to your Stage environment first (if available).|
Click ADD WIDGET.
The Add Widget pop-up window opens.
Assign a Name for the widget.
The width of the Web Office container is divided into three columns. Select the column width you need.
One Column - Spans one column
Two Columns - Spans two columns
Three Columns - Spans three columns.
You can customize for whom the content will display using Multi-Faceted Configuration (MFC).
Toggle the Published switch to publish the page after saving.
|Once you’ve created your widget, add it to a widget page. For example, adding a widget to the Web Office Homepage.|
|If you need answers, ideas, or consulting from an expert, see the DirectScale Marketplace.|
