Using your Widgets
Widgets are a simple and quick way for you to access and share certain information from apps such as B1G1. Some common widgets that you might have used are a Calendar widget, which provides a quick view of the upcoming events in your calendar without having to open the Calendar application or a Weather widget to show you today's weather on your phone without having to open the Weather app.

There are in total 9 types of widgets in your B1G1 account and there will definitely be one for you!
- Goal widget: This widget tracks you and your team's giving based on the impact goal you have set.
- B1G1 Impact Tracker widget: This widget shows your and your team members' live giving impacts summarised by projects.
- SDGs impacts tracker: This widget tracks you and your team's impacts for specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Note: SDG impacts are split across the trackers. For example, a project that provides food to school children is making impacts to both SDG 2: Zero Hunger and SDG 4: Quality Education. When you create 10 impacts with this project, each SDG tracker increases by 5.
