'widgets' that are global in their interaction access

My co-worker and I are doing some peer review and we're generating lots of indigo usage questions, sorry for the barrage. 

One of the things we're doing is building out some 'sub-global' navigations and functions that can be accessed from multiple screens. For example, in the attached project, the pop-up that appears when a user clicks on 'request new item', ideally that pop-up would be accessible from the dashboard screen (the one that it's on), as well as a 'clinical order details' screen (that screen doesn't exist yet, right now it's a set of sub-states of the existing screen). Anyway--I hope I'm explaining myself. Basically it's a 

'widget' that can be called from multiple screens, but when I need to edit the 'widget', I would be able to edit it one time and have all screens using that 'widget' see the resulting update.

    Thanks for posting here, Mike!
    You can create the widget behavior within screen states. 
    See this thread and download project files included there.
    Indigo does not support creating and using"widgets" across screens, yet. That's what screenparts will help you achieve, and is on our immediate to-do. It's a biggish feature, so it will take us bit of time to make sure it's working like it should. If you are following this idea on, we will update the status as and when we make progress.

    Hi, Mike!

    A lot has been going on since you wrote. I'm glad to tell you that our current version supports reusable components - screenparts -. In this link you can find more information about screenparts.

    Once again, thank you for helping us make Indigo better. If you have any questions or more feedback about the product, we'd love to get your thoughts.

    Best regards,
    Indigo Studio Team
