Browse pagesBrowse

Widgit Online’s Browse pages give you a more visual way of looking through and viewing your documents.

These pages work well when students are browsing and reading on iPads.

There are two browsing sections:

  • Browse all – This shows you all of the folders and files that you can see on the Documents page.

  • Browse Published – This shows you all of the published folders and files. You can share the web address of any published folder or file for anyone to view.

Note: Folders that contain no documents will not be shown in the 'Browse' pages.
