Reporting Widgets

Widgets display a graphical representation of Gigbuilder data and appear in buttons or a small rectangle at the very top of the dashboard. Select widget(s) and the type of device you'd like it displayed on.

Top Button Bar Options

You can select to either show a drop-down of the most recent upcoming activities or navigate directly the view containing everything.


Calendar Control

Displays an event calendar on your dashboard automatically sized for your device. Your calendar will display below any Report Widget and above legacy widgets. Gigbuilder also contains a full calendar which is available on its own page


Use all the widgets from prior versions of Gigbuilder. Many of these widgets have been added to the taskbar but are here for backward compatibility. Mobile devices have an upper limit of ten items (and a + button for additional) for each widget to conserve space.

Event Status Widgets
Web Requests

Widget displays event requests made from your date checker or Gigbuilder-engaged websites such as, Check My Wedding Date, WedExperts, etc.


Status of Lead is the default when you generate an event OR once a Web Request has been edited.


Events marked by Pursued will show up in this module. Consider a Pursued event as a HOT LEAD. Normally you would have provided pricing information and probably setup a prospect meeting, but they have yet to request a contract.

Pending Contract

Widget displays events where a contract/invoice has been sent but not yet received OR if deposit hasn't been received.

Booked Events

Displays Upcoming Confirmed events sorted by event date.

Post Production

Events in Post-Production will show in this module. Events become Post Production after an event date passes (if configured)


Events that have been indefinitely postponed due to illness, acts of God, or other conditions beyond their control.

Recently Accessed
