Creating, editing, and managing widgets

Create my widget

  1. Navigate to the widget-building tool and click the "Add Widget" button.
  2. Select the organization location you're creating the widget for and give your widget a name.
  3. The lightning delay countdown timer will automatically populate on the widget.
  4. Pick your primary condition preference. This will take up most of the page with the timer. 
  5. Add secondary conditions (optional) and/or forecast data. The current conditions are coming from your Perry Weather weather station or the closest data source.
  6. Assign a user group. This ensures your widget is aligned with your organization's policy alerts.
  7. Add a custom message to communicate updates or announcements. Give it an expiration date so you can set it and forget it.
  8. Change the theme and update the background of your choice.
