Configuring the LauncherLocate this document in the navigation structure


  • You are assigned the Content Admin role


To define the Launcher , you use one of the portal container objects: role folder, role, or workset. First, you set the value of the Mobile Perspective property of the object to Launcher . Then, you add the Launcher to your mobile role. Finally, you add the content items to display in the Launcher . For each content item, you need to configure whether it opens in the portal content area, or in a new portal window. You can also specify custom icons for each item in the Launcher , instead of the default icons that are provided for an application and a folder.


There is only one Launcher . When more than one object has the Launcher mobile perspective, the content items from all container objects are grouped together in the Launcher with the highest Sort Priority value (lowest numeric value). The order in which the contents of the other container objects are added, is determined by the value of the Sort Priority property. The lower the numeric value, the earlier (higher up) the object contents are added.
