A web clip is an app that opens a website from the Home screen of the mobile device. By clicking web clip icons on the home screen of the device, the user can quickly open websites (such as the corporate website). You can add web clips to user devices and configure the appearance of the web clip icon displayed on the screen.

By default, the following restrictions on web clip usage apply:

  • The user cannot manually remove web clips from the mobile device.
  • Websites that open when the user clicks a web clip icon do not open in full-screen mode.
  • The corner rounding, shadow, and gloss visual effects are applied to the web clip icon on the screen.

To add a web clip on a user's iOS MDM device:

  1. In the console tree, in the Managed devices folder, select the administration group to which the iOS MDM devices belong.
  2. In the workspace of the group, select the Policies tab.
  3. Open the policy properties window by double-clicking.
  4. In the policy Properties window, select the Web Clips section.
  5. Click the Add button in the Web Clips section.

    The Web Clip window opens.

  6. In the Name field, enter the name of the web clip to be displayed on the home screen of the iOS MDM device.
  7. In the URL field, enter the web address of the website that will open when the web clip icon is clicked. The address should begin with "http://" or "https://".
  8. To allow the user to remove a web clip from the iOS MDM device, select the Allow removal check box.
  9. Click the Select button and specify the file with the image for the web clip icon.

    The icon is displayed on the home screen of the iOS MDM device. The image must meet the following requirements:

    • Image size no greater than 400 х 400 pixels.
    • File format: GIF, JPEG, or PNG.
    • File size no greater than 1 MB.

    The web clip icon is available for preview in the Icon field. If you do not select an image for the web clip, a blank square is displayed as the icon.

    If you want the web clip icon to be displayed without special visual effects (rounding of icon corners and gloss effect), select the Precomposed icon check box.

  10. If you want the website to open in full-screen mode on the iOS MDM device when you click the icon, select the Full screen Web Clip check box.
  11. Click OK.

    The new web clip appears in the list.

  12. Click the Apply button to save the changes you have made.

As a result, once the policy is applied, web clip icons from the list you have created are added on the home screen of the user's mobile device.
