Widgets are a category of content that automatically updates and have a preset template that you can edit to suite your screen. Some widget examples are weather, clock & date, RSS feed and calendars.

All widgets are setup the same way. So we are only going to show you how to setup a clock & date widget below. There is however three exceptions, blog, notices and target value requires a source and a user to manually update the information. You can read more information about these sources here.

If you are missing a widget to an information system, finance system or another system a unique widget can be made. If you are in need of a unique widget please contact your distributor or us at PLAYipp so that we can give you an estimation. 

All Widgets are found by clicking on + add new when you are in a playlist.
