The Custom UI widget, in which you can mix UI components at will in order to build your own interface, is now even more robust thanks to the addition of 4 new components you can use in your widget:
- Toggle button
- Dropdown menu (of single or multiple choice)
- Hour picker
- Numeric input
Once the Custom UI is configured, you can trigger a webhook to an UbiFunction or 3rd-party platform to processCustom UI, boosted the input data — or just go to another Ubidots dashboard or an external link. It can be used for many solutions, such as the following:
- A truck driver who inputs data in a smartphone about incidents along the route. This data enriches the GPS data already collected in Ubidots.
- A machine expert who just finished a maintenance task and leaves the maintenance date with comments in a tablet located next to the machine.
- An IoT-fleet operator who sets configuration parameters and triggers a downlink function when hitting “send”.
