Widget Use

iOS widgets allow for easy content discovery, quicker access to preferred content, and updates in real time about shared content activity–all without even opening the app.

Quickly view information and receive updates from Content Hub on your iPhone or iPad’s home screen with new widgets for iOS. Personalize your home screen for streamlined productivity by adding configurable widgets for content or recent HubShare activity and analytics. Get the latest at a glance, without even having to launch the app.

Note: If initial update does not present correctly, users may need to clear their cookies and restart their device. 

Types of Widgets

Latest Content is the default, but users can configure this to show content that is:

Selecting a piece of content from the widget will bring you directly to that content in the Hub app.

Recent Shares (4 sizes to choose from on iPad - S / M / L / XL; 3 sizes on iPhone - S / M / L)
