With the introduction of Page Builder module in AgilePoint NX, customers can create nice looking portal pages by simply dragging and dropping widgets onto the page designer.
We have tried to cover most common widgets which will help a designer create rich and powerful home page, dashboard etc. in the portal but we also realized that no matter how many widgets we provide, there will always be a need for customers to design their own dynamic widgets which need to be embedded in a page built in Page Builder module.
With this in mind, we enabled a new form type called “Widget Only Form” which lets you create not traditional form i.e. without having a submit button. It might be a list of records from Salesforce or database table which you want to show on home page of the portal or even a map, Announcement list with content coming from a CMS, QR Code etc.
With eForms you could create these widgets and then easily embed them in AgilePoint NX portal page. In addition to this, the widget can also be placed on any external portal as well so it is not limited to just AgilePoint portal.
Lets see how to design a new map widget using eForms.
Please note that I had recorded this video when this feature was in beta version so some of the labels and icons would have changed since then but the concept of designing such app remains the same. At the time of posting, this feature is already in GA.
