    I feel like I've been researching in circles looking at the documentation...but I feel like my question is simple enough! 

    To keep things easy to understand- I've created a custom module called "Case Studies". Now say I'm on a specific page and I want to list three specific case studies because they are case studies specific to the particular page I'm on. 

    When I'm on the page and I drag and drop the "Case Studies" widget onto it, under the "Content" tab I have:

    • All published case studies
    • One particular case study only...
    • Selection of case studies 

    The option I would ​like ​to have would be like the "One particular case study only..." but allow me to pick out the three case studies I want to display. 

    Seems simple enough of a request, but I have yet to see where/how to do this.

    Hello Jonathan,

    Please note that if you choose the One particular <your module> only ... option, you will be able to select only one item to be displayed in details view.

    If you would like for example to display two particular module items on a page, one of the options I can suggest is to drop your module's widget two times on this page and configure the widgets to display the desired items.

    Another option is to use the Selection of <your modules>: option which will enable you to filter the displayed items by dates or by classification. In order to filter the items by classification, you first need to add the classification as a custom field to the content type. Please refer to the attached screenshot for more details on this.
