Configure a My Request widget

Network administrators create and customize the My Request widget in their Network instance. When the configuration is saved, Network generates the code that web developers will use to embed the widget in the internal application. You can also add the widget to an application to use in the Network Portal.


Configure the My Requests widget

To add a My Request widget:

  1. In the Admin console, click Widgets & Portal > Network Widgets.
  2. Click Add Network Widget.
  3. In the New Network Widget dialog, select My Request Widget from the list.

  4. Click Create Widget.
    The New My Widget page displays.
  5. In the Details section, define the following information

    1. Name and Description.
    2. System - Select a source system.

    3. Type - My Request Widget is selected by default.
    4. Widget Enabled - Yes is selected by default.

  6. In the General Settings section, define the domain and behavior for your widget.

    1. Authentication - Type the domain name for the internal website that will host the widget. If you are embedding the widget into the Network portal, use * or your instance URL; for example, If you are embedding the widget into a Salesforce Visualforceā„¢ page, use *

      Multiple domain names can be added. Wildcards are supported in case the domain changes and to support multiple domains. Click +Add Domain to specify additional domains.

    2. Languages - Any languages that should display in the widget. English is defined by default.

    3. Hashtags - Network hashtags display in enabled My Request widgets by default. Hashtags are automatically applied to requests to summarize important details on the record.

      Click the Hashtags link to go to the Network Hashtags configuration. You can open a hashtag and go to the Visibility section to define the hashtag settings for this widget.

    4. Profile Layout - Determine which layout to use for viewing profiles.

      Typically, the layouts assigned to the user's data visibility profile contain all of the fields in the Network data model. You can override this default behavior and assign specific profile layouts for each country to the widget. For example, you can use custom profile layouts to limit the number of fields so widget users only see the essential fields.

      Choose one of the following options:

      • Use the DVP of the user - Typically, the layouts assigned to the DVP contain all of the fields in the Network data model.

      • Override the DVP and assign a specific profile layout - Use a custom profile layout.

        If you choose this option, define the Country and profile layouts for HCPs and HCOs.

      Important: If you override the layout to display a limited set of fields in record profiles, it also impacts that fields that display in their requests. If the field isn't included in the layout, it will not display in the request.

    5. Branding - Customize the appearance of the widget.

      1. Widget header- Choose whether your widget should display a header. For the Network Portal, a header is not required.

        By default, a header is not included so the widget displays seamlessly into your internal portal. If you include a header, you can add a custom logo and title.

      2. Images - If you choose to include a header, upload a logo to add to the widget.

        Image files in .JPG and .PNG formats are supported. The image name cannot contain spaces. The image file will be automatically resized to fit in the appropriate space. The maximum height and width is 24px by 24px.

        The uploaded image displays in the Preview section.

      3. Fonts - Choose the font family to be used in the widget. By default, Open Sans is selected.
      4. Colors - Customize the colors for your widget.
        • Link Color - Used for all links. Default, #3A78BB
        • Icon Color - Used inside the HCP and HCO icons. Default, #FFFFFF
        • HCP Icon Color - The default icon color for HCPs when a metric is not selected. Default, #444444
        • HCO Icon Color - The default icon color for HCOs when a metric is not selected. Default, #005FB1
  7. In the Labels section, define the Widget Title -The languages that you defined for the widget are listed. If you chose to have a widget header, type the Widget Title label for each language.

    By default, the title is Network My Request. It can be a maximum of 80 characters.

  8. Save your changes.

The My Request widget can be added to a new or existing application in your Network Portal. This enables users with access to the Network Portal to view their DCR requests.
