As a part of the Mobile Application Management (MAM) feature, SureMDM allows IT Admins to create their own enterprise app store. They can use SureMDM Web Console to compile a list of enterprise apps and push it to the enrolled mobile devices. Due to the android limitation, we can no longer create web shortcuts on Oreo Android version onwards through run scripts. However, you can make use of the app store to create web app links and push it through profiles. But the web links will only be seen in SureMDM App store not on the home screen.

Devices with OS version Android 8(Oreo) and above can make use of this feature to add a weblink/webpage shortcut on the device through SureMDM App store.

Note : Due to Android limitations the below mentioned run script is only functional on device with OS version Android 7 and below.
