What is a Widget?

A widget is a shortcut to add information to a web page that already exists somewhere else within the KelloggGroups system.

For example, you already have Officer info in the "Officers" area of the club management toolbar. Instead of you having to create your own content box, re-type bios, add pics, names, emails, etc, you just need to copy and paste the Officers widget (below) and that info will automatically appear and be placed within a styled content box.
