How to add custom widgets?
Custom widgets need to be developed by you or one of our partners. Once the widget has been made, it’s as easy as dragging and dropping it into a Happeo Page through the Admin.
What is a custom widget?
A custom widget is a way to embed your favorite tools into your favorite social intranet – Happeo. Widgets are drag-and-drop “windows” that peer into those tools, giving you the chance to bring your favorite solutions into one place and have a more personalised intranet.
Why do I need a custom widget?
Because you want to bring your organization’s most-used tools into its most-used platform for communication and collaboration. This helps your colleagues save time and “switching costs” – the amount of time it takes the brain to adapt to a new context. Everything stays in the same tab, and so does your focus.
How can a custom widget help me?
It depends on your use case! We wrote a couple above. HR can embed their ERP or HRM systems. Sales can access their CRM. IT can create a quick way for people to file tickets. It all depends on the needs and wants of your organization and its departments. One thing we can assure you: by creating custom widgets, you’ll increase the adoption rate of your social intranet platform. And that’s good for everyone.
Are custom widgets expensive?
It’s tough to say. You can’t put one price on it because every tool has different capabilities, also in the way they connect through APIs. The easiest thing you can do is get in touch with us and we can give you an idea of the scope and resources involved.
