Microsoft 365 widgets are similar to standard widgets offered by Staffbase. They make content or services from Microsoft platforms available to your users on Pages and News posts. With a compact design layout, the Microsoft 365 widgets make integration between the two platforms a seamless experience.
Empower users to view their tasks, calendar, or overview from Microsoft platforms on the same page as other non-Microsoft content. Editors do not have to use templates or custom CSS. The widgets can be added with a few clicks and make Microsoft content appear on a page in a compact and neatly organized manner.
