Creating a link to an external application

Hi everyone,

 

We are looking for user friendly ways to provide our users with a set of links to applications and resources (ex. SharePoint site) oustide of HOPEX, that they could access from within HOPEX. We have had some success embedding these hyperlinks in the "Start Page" in the Windows client.

 

Is it possible to create a custom MetaCommand that could be accessible from the top menu in the Windows client  (ex.: File > Resources > Go to EA SharePoint), and that would open a URL? Is this possible in the Web client using Versatile Desktops?

 

Thank you!

Philippe

As a follow-up to this question: I created a new MetaCommand Item that shows up in the menu on the Web front-end.

 

What MetaTool would I need to use so that when a user clicks on the button it opens a URL in a new browser tab?

 

Thanks,

Philippe

Re: Creating a link to an external application

Hi Sashidar,

I ended up creating a widget that displayed the links as external references (this was in V1R3). Not sure if there is a better way of doing this now in V2R1 (maybe a Tile?)

 

Thanks,

Hello,

 

Indeed the tile sounds the right way. You could also create an additionnal menu entry on the top menu. 

 

Look at the example on the mega community or mega documentation that open an external website.

 

Moreover, in recent version of HOPEX (V2R1 U4 or V3) you can use the "Share" command to generate an URL to directly access the property page of the object.

 

So from external system you can directly access the object.
