Widgets allow you to present information about your online consultation as small snippets on the side of your project page for easy viewing. They are designed to help your community better understand your projects by providing options to put pictures and videos, provide a link for easy sign up, highlight important links and dates, showcase related projects, answer frequently asked questions etc.
You can integrate any number of these into your projects and there are 14 widgets for you to choose from:
Document library - Share your key project documents
Photo Gallery - Use the photo gallery to liven up your consultation
Videos - Show a video in your consultation
Follow Project - Encourage participant's to follow your project
Key Dates - Highlight the important dates to be remembered
Who's Listening - Tell your community 'Who's Listening' to them

Signup Banner - Activate the signup banner
