How to create Screen Designer Widgets
(texst from video)
Hello, my name is Kristian and welcome to this Academy video for screen designer widgets. Widgets are useful mini programs that can be used as an overlay on your content. Enter screen designer by enter the screen designer by clicking the icon as showed on screen. Once inside screen designer you will be able to add widgets to your content. It`s important to know that all widgets can be attached on top of your content. On the left side you will see all available widgets. We have many such as digital clock, RSS feed, iframe and social widgets. All widgets are drag and drop.
As an example, I will use the digital clock to create a countdown for a meeting starting tomorrow. Place the widgets where ever you want. You can adjust the size by pulling the corner. You can change the color on both, the font and the background by clicking on the icon for the pencil. So, let`s choose black background and we can also choose the font. We will leave it with white this time. We can adjust the settings for count-down and count-up by clicking the icon for settings. Select countdown and set the time for future meeting by clicking the icon for the calendar. You can also select or deselect the trailing text. Press save when all settings are set.
In another example I will show you how you can configure an RSS feed. Drag and drop the widget and place it where ever you want. You can place it around the edge of the screen or as a standard box in the middle. Paste in the functional RSS URL and then click on the icon for show preview. You can change the duration and you can also select if you don`t want to show old news. Press save when all settings are set. You can change the opacity by clicking the icon of pencil and reducing the opacity to better fit your content. Once you are pleased with your design, remember to press publish to save your screen design. On the bottom on the right side you will be notified when the screen design has been saved.
