Workstation Widgets and Widget Management

Last Updated March 12, 2023

Brief Overview

Workstation Home screen widgets boost employee productivity by initiating processes directly within Workstation and by streamlining access to commonly used tools and resources.

The widgets provide:

  • Frequently used apps and files
  • Open tasks and other info from integrated apps
  • Customizable workspace with an easy drag-and-drop menu

Available Widgets

The following apps have widgets that can be added to the Workstation Desktop home screen.

See all available integrations

Not all integrations come with a homepage widget, but all integrations improve your Workstation experience. Check out all of the available integrations and connect the ones relevant to you

Recent Resources

The Recent Resources widget is automatically added to the Workstation homepage when resources are added to the Resources page. It will display the three WalkMe resources you most recently interacted with. This way you can quickly find the WalkMe resources you use most!

ActionBot Chats

Similar to the recent resources, the ActionBot Chats widget is automatically added to the Workstation home screen when conversations are added to the Workstation ActionBot.

Unread Notifications

The Unread Notifications widget displays on the Home screen only when there are notifications that you haven’t opened. It disappears after all notifications are read.

Recently Viewed

The recently viewed widget is your one-stop shop to your most recently opened articles, tickets, tasks, and more. It is automatically added to your homepage after you integrate a compatible app, including but not limited to: Google Drive, Box, Github.

With this widget you can:

  • See a list of your most recently opened external resources.
  • Filter to view your most recent activity in a specific application.

Resources are displayed in this list when you open something directly from Workstation or if you open it from the application itself. The following applications populate in the widget by viewing resources directly from the app:

  • Google
  • Box
  • Onedrive
  • GitHub
    • Github only displays the two most recent resources

Resources from other applications will display here if you opened them from Workstation. Continue to use Workstation’s Enterprise Search so that it can get smarter and become more valuable to you!
