Widgets - an overview

What is a widget?

A widget is a simple application or extension that helps users easily access specific links or features. For example, links that members access often can be added as a Quick link widget, Upcoming events or Pending tasks can be displayed in the right once the respective widgets are enabled.
Zoho Connect gives you built-in widgets such as Upcoming events, Upcoming conferences, Trending tags, and also lets you create your own widget.

What are the different types of widgets available?

Quick links: Links that are often accessed or the ones that are very important to you or your team can be added as Quick link widgets. An example for this could be a link to your HR portal, or a link to your team's resources page.

HTML widget: With HTML link widgets, there are a lot of possibilities like embedding a picture or changing the fonts and colors. HTML also provides you the flexibility to create a widget in accordance with your brand.

Poll widget: When you create a poll as a post and share it, chances are that it may be lost among the posts made in your network. So, if you want to make sure everybody in your group or network take notice of the poll, it's best to create one as a widget. 
HTML and Poll widgets are available at the company and group levels. Individual members can only create Quick link widgets in their 'My feed' page.
