Choose a Widget Type

When creating a widget, different options will be offered to you in Borealis.

The widget type can be changed once your widget is created. The properties available for each type of widget differ.


Bulletin widgets let you visualize large quantities of information in a visually appealing format that is well formatted to be shared through scheduled reports or direct presentation.bulletinwidgetexample.png


Calendars let you visualize the information as a date. Use filters to build and integrate calendars in your reports. For example, keep track of upcoming communications, know when your next task is due and plan team meetings.



Chart widgets offer one of the most visually compelling ways to visualize your data. Because each situation has its particularities, several graph types are available.



Indicator gives the total number count, sum, or average of data in a widget. The output is a number.



Visualize data according to location. Geographic data (or infrastructures) can also be located, based on data imported in the system from a shapefile or the location field of a record.


Scatter plot

Scatter plots are used to plot data points on a horizontal and a vertical axis in the attempt to show how much one variable is affected by another.



Table widgets allow you to build a custom list of your data using the columns and sorting options of your choice. You can easily export this widget to the Excel format.


Make sure you select the right widget form to access the data you are looking for.
