    Hi

    There are so many cool widgets, but it takes time to figure out what they all do.

    Here are two suggestions that would help:


    1.

    If I am in build mode and go to the Widget selector, then type a parameter, such as "photo," I see 11 results.

    If I am at https://widgets.jotform.com, then type the same parameter, I see 20 results. 

    Clearly, the same results should appear in both searches.


    2.

    If I am in build mode and go to the Widget selector, I see the widgets, but I do not know what they all do. It would help if each one shown there had a link to the widget explanation lightbox, just like if I click the widget at https://widgets.jotform.com).


    Thanks!
    best

    Robert

    Hi Robert,

    Thank you for your suggestions. I checked the options you described and I was able to see the same inconsistency when searching for the widgets feature as well in the Form Builder.

    I have sent your feature suggestions to the higher team support.

    We will notify you here for any news/updates on the status when available.

    Hi Robert,

    We have improved the search to bring more relevant results for the widgets.

    In addition, when you list the widgets and move your mouse to the right of any widget, a home icon appears.

    If you click the icon you get a screen describing what the widget does.
