Administrators plan for, install, and configure the Widgets feature for their end users.
Expeditor administrators can use an IBM® Lotus Notes® application as a widget catalog. In this case, the administrator is also responsible for creating the catalog application and assigning widgets access using Lotus® Domino® server catalog applications ACLs. Administrators configure users based on preference as well as widget catalog categories. They also control which users are designated as power users and end users. A typical power user is able to create widgets in the catalog while end user typically are not allowed to do such an action.
