We just added a ton of options to the widget builder!

We’ve been collecting feedback and looking at usage information on how administrators are using Localist Widgets to spread the word for upcoming events. We noticed a few common threads in your requests:

  • The need for more granular event selection
  • The ability to bring down everything, but exclude certain events
  • Changing the output of a widget, like hiding certain elements, or changing the behavior of the widget itself

Luckily, we just deployed enhancements to the widget builder that address those specific things! We’re eager to see how these changes improves your audience’s experience.

In case you can’t find the widget builder, just mouse over Content and click Widget Builder in your Localist Administration, or go to your calendar’s URL and add /help/widget to the end.
