  • Shortcut name: in this field you write a name for your Shortcut. This is the name that will be displayed on the shortcut icon in Haiilo.
  • Shortcut link: in this field you paste the URL that you want your shortcut to lead to. When users click on the shortcut icon in Haiilo, they will be taken to this the link that you have input. The link must be valid for the shortcut to be able to be created!
  • Visibility: Group admins cannot select anything in this field, as they can only create shortcuts for their own group. Company admins on the other hand can select either:
    • 'For everyone' whereby the shortcut will be visible to all groups in their Haiilo domain
    • 'For a group' and choose one group from the list whereby the shortcut will be visible only to users belonging to that group.
  • Platform: Group admins cannot select anything in this field, but company admins on the other hand can select either:
    • 'Web and mobile' meaning the shortcut will be visible both in the desktop version of Haiilo and in the Haiilo mobile app
    • 'Web only' meaning the shortcut will be visible only in the desktop version of Haiilo. It will not show at all in the Haiilo mobile app.
    • 'Mobile only' meaning the shortcut will be visible only in the Haiilo mobile app. It will not show at all in the desktop version of Haiilo.
  • Appearance: the Appearance section lets you decide the color and icon for the shortcut
    • Color: the color for the shortcut can be selected from the drop-down menu of example colors OR you are able to input a HEX color code into the field. 
    • Icon: the icon for the shortcut can be selected from the drop-down menu of icons

When you have input information in all the fields and selected your color and icon, a preview will appear of what your shortcut will look like when created. When you are ready to create your shortcut, click "Add Shortcut".
