The Library Widget allows you to highlight important Documents and Folders from a designated Library directly on your home page and other custom pages. Through the configuration options provided by the Library Widget, you can curate a selection of relevant Documents and Folders to be prominently displayed. This is useful to showcase essential or frequently accessed partner library content by making it easily visible and accessible to Users.

    • Popular - based on number of views in the last 60 days
    • Recently Changed
    • Rating - Displays content with the highest ratings
  • Document Count - Specify how many Documents the Widget should display at a time 
  • Limit Results (only available when Sort Order is set to Recently Changed) - Specify after how many days a Document should no longer appear in the Widget. For example, if you set this to 30 days, the Widget will not show Documents created or changed before 30 Days ago.
  • Filter by (optional) - You can use the Filter functionality to specify which items should be displayed within the Widget. 

For example, if you want to feature only Files within the Widget and no Videos, Links, or Article Documents, you can accomplish this by setting the "Document Type" filter to File. This will ensure that only items uploaded as Files appear in the Widget.
