    @Matt_Howard1 How is the widget defined? Can I see the HTML?

    When I edit the page, I have to cancel, then edit again for the widget to appear for editing. FWIW, I am using the GitHub version of the widgets.

    @Justin_Workman so, I had to re-install my test portal, but one thing that occurred to me, I did not have any assigned items or submitted requests in test. Once I created test items, the widget worked. I'm good. 😂

    Probably an easy fix but I'm not that familiar with the code and I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction.

    I wanted to create an indent to the text or to introduce some padding either side of it, so its not so close to the edge:

    It is just a html text widget but I've been looking at w3schools and not managed to find something to work within these widgets.

    Another thing I have noticed is that I added some text to the description and I get an option to see the description:

    All it seems to do is adjust the header more so its more rounded:

    Is there a way to use the description on the widgets or is it best to leave it blank?

    Hey mate, Do you know if I can have one of the Top requests RO buttons to be a click through to another page for end users.

    Want to have one saying for example "Log an application issue".. They click it and it loads another page with a long list of all the application RO's.

    Click the top left:

    Opens a page like this for example:

    Kind regards,

    @Alfie_Thomas - Of course it's possible to customize the behavior of the code as it's custom in nature. But my recommendation would be to create an ARO with a redirect link to your custom page and make that ARO one of your top ROs.

    Is there a possibility to have the widgets pull a webpage into something like an iFrame to allow displaying a HTML document?

    This is a non-authenticated page running some JS on top of a svg country map.

  • Justin_WorkmanJustin_Workman Cireson Support Super IT Monkey ✭✭✭✭✭

    A custom widget could definitely do that @Brian_Wiest! There's an easier way to make custom widgets now than when I originally wrote the homeWidgets framework. I'll try to see if we can expose this method soon.

    @Justin_Workman That would be Awesome :)

    @Justin_Workman do you know when you can expose the method to make custom widgets?

    Hi @Jan_Schulz, Hi Everyone on this thread

    Perfect timing. As of yesterday I have an answer to that question.

    Firstly, I am please to announce the release of the Homepage Widgets Add-In. We've taken the code and formally wrapped it into an Add-In so it can now be deployed without touching code. (I say "we", it was all @Justin_Workman)

    Here's a link to the KB


    and here's a blog all about it


    Finally, as you will see teased at the end of this blog, we have 2 other widget Add-Ins coming and a final blog post and how to create your own widgets. @Jan_Schulz watch this space.

    Enjoy - and let the community know how you get on.
