Adding Widgets

With a click on the button in Sidebar the Widget panel opens, showing the list of the available widget types that can be added to the dashboard:

In particular, it is possible to choose between:

  • Chart

  • Text

  • Table

  • Counter

  • Map

Creating Chart, Text, Table and Counter widgets the procedure is almost the same as that described for create widgets in maps. The only minor differences are the following:

  • In dashboards as soon as the user select the widget type, a panel appears in order to select the layer from which the widget will be created

  • In dashboards the possibility to connect/disconnect widgets to the map is replaced with the possibility to connect/disconnect the Map widgets together or with other widget types (this point will be better explained in Connecting Widgets section)

Creating Map type widgets, otherwise, is a functionality present only in dashboards.

Map Widget

In dashboards, selecting the Map type widget, the following panel appears:

Here the user can:

  • Go back to widget type selection

  • Search for a map by writing its title

  • Select a map (mandatory in order to move forward)

  • Move forward to the next step

The next panel is similar to the following (in this case an empty map was selected):

Now the user is allowed to add layers to the map through the button:

Once a layer is added to the map widget, it will be displayed in preview and in layers list:

It's now possible to toggle the layer visibility, and set layers transparency (more information in Display options section). Furthermore, by selecting it, new buttons are added to the toolbar allowing to:


Adding layers is not mandatory, it is possible to create a widget map using an empty map.

Once the button is clicked, the last step of the process is displayed like the following:

Here the user has the possibility to insert a Title and a Description for the widget (optional fields) and to complete its creation by clicking on the button. After that, the widget is added to the viewer space:

Legend widget

When at least one Map widget is created and added to the dashboard, there's the possibility to add also the Legend widget, available in the widget types list:

Selecting the Legend widget, the user can choose the Map widget to which the legend will be connected (when only a Map widget is present in the dashboard this step is skipped):

Once a Map widget is connected, the preview panel is similar to the following:

Here the user can go back to the widget types section, connect or disconnect the legend to a map and move forward to widget options.
If the last option is selected, a configuration panel similar to the Map widgets one gives the possibility, before save, to set the Title and the Description for the Legend widget.
An example of a Map widgets and a Legend widget is the following:
