Web Shortcuts

Web Shortcuts or Web Clips is used for creating shortcuts of URLs on managed devices. Web Shortcuts display the content of the linked URL. The main advantage of using Web Shortcuts is the time saved by ensuring minimal user action is required to access the content in the URLs. Web Shortcuts can generally be used in the following scenarios:



Web Shortcuts label

The name to be displayed for the Web Shortcut in the device.

URL to be linked

The URL whose contents are to be displayed when the Web Shortcut is opened.


Provide the image to be displayed as the icon for the Web Shortcut.

Open Web Shortcuts in

This option lets you choose the browser to display the Web Shortcut content. Displaying the Web Shortcut in browser with restricted access ensures the user can view only the content in the linked URL and the associated links and not modify the primary URL. This is useful as it prevents users from navigating to other web resources and restricts any browser-related action. If the Web Shortcut is displayed in a browser with no restricted access, it allows the user to modify the URL. It is recommended to display Web Shortcuts using the browser with restricted access option.

  • Web Shortcuts are displayed in the default browser present on the device.
  • When you're configuring Web Shortcuts with Kiosk, the Shortcuts are displayed in Browser with restricted access by default unless you provision a browser app under Kiosk (multi-app).
