Widgets in custom modules

You can create custom widgets as a part of an module for further use in business process forms, pages of workspaces, apps, and more. After a widget is configured, it can be used in Interface Designer. You can drag and drop it on forms, configure and reuse it like any other system widget. If the module is disabled, the widget use is no longer possible.

Besides, the module interfaces become more user-friendly and clear when widgets customized for a particular module are used.

To create or edit a widget:

  1. Go to Administration > Modules.
  2. Hover the mouse over the module and click the gear icon.
