Widgets on mobile

In the Haiilo mobile app, you can see the native widgets and their contents that appear in content apps, blog articles, wiki articles, and homepages. However, non-native widgets are not visible in the mobile app. If a native widget has been hidden for mobile, it will also not be displayed.

Widgets added to pages, communities, events, overview pages, the Colleagues list, or the user profile page are not displayed in the mobile app, regardless of whether the widgets are natively supported or not.

To identify whether a widget is supported natively or not in the Haiilo mobile app, you can check the widget catalog in the browser version. If the widget shows an icon, it's natively supported and can be viewed in the mobile app.

Widget order on mobile

Widgets on mobile are ordered in a single column, from top to bottom and left to right. The widgets are displayed in the following order based on rows and columns used in the browser version:

  • The top row's columns and their widgets are shown first. Any additional rows are shown after all the widgets in the top row's columns.
  • The left column's widgets are shown first, ordered from top to bottom. A second column's widgets are shown second, ordered from top to bottom, and so on.

To understand widget rows and columns, read Adding widgets.
