Your mobile phone or tablet's home screen isn't just for apps.  Whatever platform you're using,  you can add i3Teamworks to your home screen as a Mobile Web App, so you can quickly access i3Teamworks.

How to Add i3Teamworks to the Home Screen?

First, you need an i3Teamworks account. Then you can directly key in your i3Teamworks URL or simply scan the QR code from the i3Teamworks on your desktop, at the top-right corner after login.

Add i3Teamworks to your Android Home Screen

Launch Chrome for Android and open the i3Teamworks. Tap the menu button and tap "Add to home screen".

Add to Home Screen

You'll be able to change the name and click "Add", then Chrome will add it to your home screen.

The icon will appear on your home screen like any other app shortcut or widget, so you can drag it around and put it wherever you like.

 

Add to Home Screen

Chrome for Android loads the website as a web app when you tap the icon, so it will get its own entry in the app switcher without any browser interface.

Firefox for Android can also do this if you tap the menu button, tap the Page option, and tap Add to Home Screen.

iPhone, iPad, & iPod Touch

Launch the Safari browser on Apple's iOS and navigate to i3Teamworks. Tap the Share button on the browser's toolbar — that's the rectangle with an arrow pointing upward.

Add to Home Screen for iPhone

It's on the bar at the top of the screen on an iPad, and on the bar at the bottom of the screen on an iPhone or iPod Touch. Tap the Add to Home Screen icon in the Share menu.

You'll be prompted to name the shortcut before tapping the Add button. The shortcut can be dragged around and placed anywhere, including in app folders — just like a normal app icon. When you tap the icon, it will load the website in a normal tab inside the Safari browser app.

Windows Phone

The process is similar on Windows Phone. First, open the i3Teamworks in Internet Explorer. Tap the More (...) button and tap Pin to Start in the menu that appears.

Pin to Start

Windows Phone 8.1 supports live tile updates from websites that have configured the feature, just as Windows 8 does.

Other Smartphone or Tablet

If you have another type of smartphone or tablet, it probably has this feature, too. Just open its browser and look in its menu for an option named something like "Add to home screen" or "Pin to home screen".

To remove a website shortcut from your device's home screen, just long-press the shortcut and remove it like you would any other app icon.
