Can mobile app be made to go straight to a panel by default?

Inge Jones 4 months ago in Panels (dashboards) updated 4 months ago 4

I am trying to set it up on my Fire 7 and I have the Amazon store version of the app installed. Now on a Fire, you can't add URL shortcuts to the home screen so I was hoping to use the App icon which is on my homescreen and have it go straight to displaying a particular panel. This should only apply to that one device - obviously if I log in via my PC I want to be able to access the whole caboodle for configuration purposes.

Yes, you could do that.

If you enter the full Panel URL into the Start URL field, the app will launch to that panel. This will be device specific, which is exactly what you want.

I am not sure where I can edit that field?

Swipe from left to open kiosk menu, select Settings, Web Content Settings, Start URL and enter the full Panel URL.

Also, there are some launchers for Fire OS (IIRK Nova Launcher) that support adding shortcuts to the desktop. Such launchers will allow you to place shortcuts to particular panels on the desktop.

Thanks that did it.  Very slow to load but I blame the tablet, not ActionTiles :)
