Can I open the Search Widget with search results pre-populated?

The Search Widget allows "Search.open" command to execute with optional parameter "question" which contains the initial question the Search Widget needs in order to pre-populate answers.


All static text shown in the Search Widget are fully customizable and localizable by adding entries into your configuration and localization options.

Search supports Themes. You may create and register your own themes for Genesys Widgets.

Mobile Support

Search supports both desktop and mobile devices. Like all Genesys Widgets, there are two main modes: Desktop & Mobile. Desktop is employed for monitors, laptops, and tablets. Mobile is employed for smartphones. When a smartphone is detected, Search switches to special fullscreen templates that are optimized for both portrait and landscape orientations.

Switching between desktop and mobile mode is done automatically by default. You may configure Genesys Widgets to switch between Desktop and Mobile mode manually if necessary.
