Widgets

Experience Builder includes many out-of-the-box widgets for creating web experiences. Most widgets have settings that you can configure and customize to tailor the app to your audience. When you add a widget, its configuration panel includes Content, Style, and Action settings. Content defines the behavior, data, links, and other settings for the widget. Each widget has unique configurations.

At the top of the widget configuration panel, you can change the icon and label to distinguish between widgets as you configure the web experience.

The icon and name appear in the Outline section for the active page and in choice lists when you connect widgets.
