  5. Updating Widget

    2. Changes in the subscription plan will automatically reflect in the widget without any need for manual updates.

  6. Alert System

    1. The widget includes an alert system to notify users as they approach their usage limits.

    2. Monthly usage is measured from the 1st of every month, ensuring users are aware of their new cycle and limits. Usage metrics within the widget are reset to reflect the new cycle on the 1st of each month, providing users with a clear and updated view of their usage against the new month's limits.

In case of queries or if assistance is needed, users can directly request help through the widget's interface.

The Usage Widget is an essential tool for Nected users to ensure they remain within their plan's operational boundaries and can take timely action if they need to adjust their subscription for higher usage demands.
