MyUW - System - Default widgets on home

Documents which MyUW widgets are included in the new MyUW landing screen for non-Madison users by default, for which user roles.

What is a widget?

In the new MyUW, the portal displays some widgets on the landing screen. Widgets are brief launchers that may summarize a bit of information about the linked application or website.

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 - it would not be very helpful for MyUW to display items on your MyUW home that you cannot use. So a typical user will experience the relevant sub-set of these widgets as their default widgets.
