Simpo Widget

Updated 1 week ago by Wesley Faulkenberry


The Simpo Widget is the engine that powers everything related to your Simpo Tools. The Widget is how your end-users will start their Simpo journey by accessing the information they are looking for. By clicking the Widget, a user can access the Search Bar for everything related to what you have created in Simpo or integrated into Simpo.

By default, the Widget will show a red notification dot until clicked on.

Customizing the Simpo Widget


The Widget is fully customizable and can be made to reflect any type of branding or custom CSS. In order to edit, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the Configuration icon in the top right-hand corner of the Simpo Dashboard
  2. Once on this page, you can start editing everything from the Widget text color, background color, and even the design of the Search Bar
The Simpo Launchpad Widget field allows you to change the location of where/how the Simpo Widget appears on your web application. The Simpo Main Container allows you to change the actual appearance of the Simpo Main Container.

Alternatives to the Simpo Widget


You are not limited to launching the Simpo Search Bar from the Widget only.

First, to disable the Widget, navigate to the Configuration Page and scroll down to the Widget Appearance tab. By adding the line display: nonethe CSS field, you will hide the Widget.

Simpo can then instead be activated by attaching the console command below to any element in your product.

simpo.open()

Once attached, users can launch Search with just a click!
