What is a default widget?

MyUW takes a guess at what widgets will be useful to you based broad identity information about you (things like your campus affiliation), displaying those widgets to you by default.

You can re-arrange these, remove the ones not relevant to you, and add more items you find in MyUW via search or via browsing the available apps.

What are the default widgets?

These are the default widgets in MyUW for non-Madison users. Any given widget will only appear on your MyUW home if you are in the audience of people who are able to use that widget. A typical user will see the relevant sub-set of these widgets as their default widgets.
