Hi all 👋,
I have a more conceptual question about the Content Management System.
We are trying to create some dashboard-like page with some customer specific elements (last orders, users, …). The elements will have some properties like (id, title, icon, width, height, …) and it should easily be customizable by a Content-Manager in the back office (activate, deactivate, adjust the order, …).
 
https://documentation.spryker.com/docs/adding-content-to-storefront-pages-using-templates-slots
We are already having a Page-Template, Slot and a CMS-Block.
Currently we are stumble which is the right way to implement the individual elements as described above into the CMS-Block: 
1.    “CMS Content Widgets” https://documentation.spryker.com/docs/enabling-cms-widget
2.    “Content Item” https://documentation.spryker.com/docs/content-items-feature-overview
Thanks for your input

    Hello Marcel,
    “CMS Content Widgets” - can be easily used by a developer but not an admin user (Content-Manager)

    “Content Item” - is designed to be used by an admin user (Content-Manager).

    So I think you can go with a “Content Item”.

    Hi Helen, thanks for your response.
    Are there any functional differences between those two methods?
    “Content Items” seems to have been introduced later in spryker and is now just a more comfortable way to manage these type of content. Am I right here?

    There is a difference:
    “The CMS content widget is a twig function”
    “The Content Items feature creates an abstraction layer for content management in the Back Office”
