Embed announcements into your app or site


The announcement widget offers a seamless way to integrate release notes into your application or website. With a simple click on a trigger in form of a link or button, users can access a dialog box displaying the most recent announcements. Additionally, the trigger conveniently displays a badge indicating the presence of new announcements.

Advanced options

Overwriting the UI settings

You can overwrite the configured styles and settings of the widget by adding custom properties to the embed code. This allows for customizing the styling when embedding the widget in different locations.

When a setting is configured via the properties below, it can no longer be customized via the UI settings.

The properties are specified as attributes within the <released-widget> custom HTML element.

Widget Properties

The following customisation options are available for the widget.


The ID of the release notes channel.


The position of the widget. Can be top-left, top-right, bottom-right, or bottom-left.


Can be trigger or viewport. Positions the popup relative to the trigger or the viewport.

When using trigger, position translates to...
  • top-left = top-start (popover opens above the trigger and the left of the popover is aligned to the left of the button)

  • top-right = top-end (popover opens above the trigger and the right of the popover is aligned to the right of the button)

  • bottom-left = bottom-start (popover opens below the trigger and the left of the popover is aligned to the left of the button)

  • bottom-right = bottom-end (popover opens below the trigger and the right of the popover is aligned to the right of the button)

  • center = bottom (popover opens below the trigger and the popover is centered horizontally, relative to the trigger)

You can find a demo and experiment with different options on Codepen.

Data Attributes

Setting data attributes can be helpful to prevent unwanted interactions with 3rd party libraries. For example, to prevent scrolling issues when the Lenis library is used, you can add the data-lenis-prevent attribute to the host container.


<released-widget channel-id="CHANNEL_ID" data-lenis-prevent=""></released-widget>

Default values

The following default values are applied in case a property is not explicitly defined.

<released-widget channel-id="CHANNEL_ID" 
  title="What's New"
  sub-title="The latest updates and improvements."
