Widgets are an essential aspect of project management. You can imagine them as "at-a-glance" views of an app's most important data and functionality that is accessible right from the user's home page.
Freedcamp allows its users to apply different settings (filters) to their Widget Application Types (as described in the following section) to tailor the amount of information within a widget to their preference. A widget can be created several times using different settings as per the user’s requirements.
With Freedcamp’s Widgets Board, users can move widgets across their Widgets board’s page through our drag and drop capabilities as shown below:
You can click here to set your Widgets Board as your default Home page.
