Actions Tile App (android) can it default to a Panel

Rey Rios 4 years ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 4 years ago 3

I have AT app on my Android phone.  When I open the app, it does not go to my preferred panel (starred) but to My Panels.  I would like to always go to my starred panel called Phone.  Is there a way to do this in the app?

I don't want to use an URL because it does not (or I don't know) how to always open in full mode.  I would not like to install another browser if possible (like Full Kiosk)

Hi Rey,

The purpose of Favorite panel got lost a little bit. The app goes to the starred panel when you initially login. But since the session became long running, this functionality sort of became obsolete.

ActionTiles can be installed as a web app pointing to a particular panel. Open ActionTiles in Chrome browser and navigate to a panel. Tap the side menu on Top-right, select Add to Home Screen. This will create a shortcut on your desktop. When launched, it will open the panel in immersive mode to give you native app performance and look and feel. Repeat these steps to create shortcuts for additional panels.

Alternatively, ActionTiles Kiosk app also allows you to add shortcuts to individual panels. While based on Fully, ActionTiles kiosk app is optimized for ActionTiles and it does not want to become your browser, like the original Fully Kiosk.

Thanks.  My case is that a I am launching the AT app from another app (in this case KWGT or Tasker) which launches the app, but as you said, after a long session, it default to the initial page panel.

If I had an Android shortcut, it would be ideal but I don't see one with the app.  The app shortcut creates a shortcut in my home screen which I guess I cannot use for my purpose.

Would there be an intent I can use or something else?

If I understand correctly, you are already using the ActionTiles kiosk app.

If that's the case, you can change the Start URL to be the URL of your favorite panel.

Swipe from left, go to Settings > Web Content Settings and update the Start URL.
