Widgets are self-contained, HTML-based representations of software components. The content palette displays the widgets that are available for you to use in the Home page.
You can access the following types of widget from the content palette:
- IBM® Connections widgets. The IBM Connections widgets available from the content palette include widgets for the IBM Connections applications that you have installed. Use these widgets to display a snapshot view of the latest updates for each application. The content palette also contains social analytics widgets, if your administrator has made them available. These widgets use information from the different IBM Connections applications to recommend content that might be relevant to you.
- Widgets acquired from another vendor. When your administrator has enabled the use of widgets from another vendor, these are displayed in the content palette along with the IBM Connections widgets that are available for use.
You can access the content palette by clicking Customize
