App Settings contains Widget Overview – an overview of all Marketplace widgets and local widgets in your app.

The following types of widgets are included into the widget overview of the App Settings:

  • Marketplace widgets that are Studio approved, which are either, widgets that have been added by default when you created your app, or widgets you can download from the Marketplace to your app directly from Studio (for more information on widgets, see Widgets)
  • Local widgets – widgets created by users in Studio Pro (you can create local widgets yourself via Studio Pro, for more information, see Build pluggable web widgets)

In the App Settings the following columns are displayed:

Column Description

  • Widget icon
  • Name – the name of a single widget or the group of widgets
  • Version – the version of the widget installed in your app
  • Contributor’s name – the name of the contributor who uploaded widgets in the Marketplace
  • Number of widgets in a package (when applicable) with a drop-down listing the widget names
