Widget Chooser

The Widget Chooser allows the user to add a widget to the dashboard (assuming the user has editor permission for the dashboard). The Widget Chooser is displayed when the Add Widget Add_Widget_icon icon is selected while editing a dashboard.

 

Widget_Chooser_Example

 

 

The Widget Chooser provides a variety of options to view and select widgets.

 

Search – Search available widgets by entering a text string into the search box Search_icon below the Widget Chooser header. The display of widgets will be limited to the search string. Note that the search string must be at least three (3) characters; searching one or two characters will not return results.

 

Select the More Options dashboard_chooser icon to open a drop-down menu with the following options:

Favorites – Choose from a list of the user's favorite widgets. Favorite widgets are selected in tile view by clicking the star on the tile. This will change the star to gold, and that widget will show up in the Favorites view.

Recent – Choose from a list of recently used widgets (sorted in reverse chronological order—most recently used first).

Browse – Browse all widgets accessible to the user.

Tile View – This option will display the widgets as large tiles (default view).

Grid View – This option will display the widgets in list form. In addition to the widget name, this view displays the WIDGET_CODE, WIDGET_ID, and owner of the widget.

Once the desired widget is found, simply click on the tile to select the widget and close the Widget Chooser. The selected widget will appear on the dashboard in the location where the Add Widget Add_Widget_icon icon was selected.

 

Close Widget Chooser – The Close_icon icon closes the Widget Chooser without changing the selected widget.
