Hiding Titles in Widgets

    • If it is a checkmark, the title will show.
    • If it is an empty square, the title will be hidden.

  • Note: When Widget Editor is enabled, administrators will still be able to see the title, but end users will now.

  • Once the title of a widget is hidden, end users and administrators will not see the title when Widget Editor is disabled.

Enterprise Widgets vs. Challenge/WebStorm Widgets

  • The widgets on the Challenge/WebStorm level are respective to the activity placed within the confines of that WebStorm.
    • Therefore, if only four people conducted activity with WebStorm A, but not WebStorm B, then those four peoples' activities (idea submissions, comments, votes) show up accordingly within WebStorm A's statistics and widgets. 
    • Enterprise level widgets accounts for all activity of underlying WebStorms' marked Enterprise in their setup.
  • Some widgets exist on both levels (My Stats, Community Stats, Mini Top Contributors, etc.) 
 

Important Things to Note:

  • Here is a full guide that describes all widgets in both Enterprise & WebStorm
    • Administrators can also search within the Widgets section in the Support Portal Knowledge Base
  • The administrator can achieve custom look-and-feel of widgets, including rounded edges, with a custom CSS design.  
  • The administrator can copy widgets to other WebStorms via Copy WebStorm feature or Create Pipeline/WebStorm.
  • Administrators cannot add widgets to the Setup page or Post Idea pages.
  • If 'Widget Editor' is enabled for an administrator, any end users logged in at the same time will not see the options available for widget mode.
  • Administrators can add Javascript in text/html widgets to add to your WebStorm.  
    • There is an option to disable Javascript in text/html widgets.
