"Pages" of different panels?

John Munoz 6 years ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 6 years ago 3

I'm a complete noob to AT so I'm sure I'm not doing this the correct way but I'm hoping someone could kindly nudge me in the right direction.  I created my first panel and setup things I'd like visible right up front.  I'm using Fire 7 tables so the screen real estate is limited.  I currently have shortcut's on the main panel that open up my "lighting panel" and another "sprinkler panel" but by doing it this way, it's actually creating a new tab in the browser each time a shortcut is pressed.  

What's the correct way of accomplishing this?

Hi John,

What browser are you using? Panel Shortcuts are hard-configured to open the target Panel always in the same tab.

URL Shortcuts can be customized to open in the same tab, new tab, or "pop-up" overlay window (mixed results).

Currently using Silk.  Using the MyShortcuts, is there a different panel shortcut that I should be using?

Right:  You ought not use a My Shortcut (a URL Shortcut) for moving between Panels.

While you can use the "Same Window" option of a URL Shortcut Tile (until Tile Settings...):


You should rather use a Panel Shortcut Tile:


This is a lot more convenient, because you don't need to define each of your Panels in My Shortcuts. A Panel Shortcut already knows your list of Panels to choose from.
