The following are our recommended plugins that can be embedded into a content area of an Encompass site.  Please keep in mind that you may need Application Support to add any HTML with a "Script" within the code. Though you can add widgets (via the HTML view) to any area or page within your site, we cannot help you modify the widgets and do not offer any support for the feeds.

Juicer is a lesser-known but equally valuable tool.  It is a social media streaming resource that enables you to aggregate two of your school's social media accounts into a single feed.  So, if you'd like to blend both your Twitter and Facebook feeds into a single feed, Juicier allows you to do that. This would be a good fit for a home page or larger content area. Requires Encompass Assistance
