Creating a Preview Widget

Preview widgets are used to display images on a user's Dashboard which link to an image, video or PDF file that is displayed in a pop-up window (aka 'modal') within the browser.

Please refer to the below instructions for creating a Preview widget:

1. Go to System → System Configuration

2. Click on Dashboard

3. Click on New Widget

* indicates a required field

4. In the Type* drop-down, select the "Preview" option

5. Title*: Enter a name

Tip: This can be anything, but we recommend using something that catches the attention of the targeted users.

6. Description*: Enter a description

Note: Only appears to administrators and won't be shown to users/on the front-end.

7. Preferred Column*: Select the preferred column you wish to display the widget in - either "left" or "right"

8. Target Country: Set target country/countries you wish to apply the widget to [optional]

9. Style*: Choose your preferred header style and colouring

10. Preview Image*: Upload an image to be displayed in the widget

Attention: Check the tool tip for accepted file types and size restrictions.

Recommended Image Sizes:  With a variety of devices used across the World Manager platform there is a variety of sizing used with Image Widgets. For a computer screen at 1920px X 1080px resolutions we recommend:

Preferred Column Width Height
Left Hand Side 813px 200-300px
Right Hand Side 400px 200-300px

11. File*: Upload a file that will preview in the modal when the 'Preview Image' is clicked

Attention: Check the tool tip for accepted file types and size restrictions.

12. Click Save

In this example, we have used an image with a (preview) link to a PDF

Here is the result

So, what next?

Now that you have created your widget, you need to allocate the widget to specific account Roles. Please refer to the following articles:
