What are Suggested Apps?

Suggested Apps are apps that have been proposed by the user. The admin can decide whether or not to include it in the apps.

How do I suggest an app?

To suggest an app, access the Launchpad and click on the button "Suggest an App" in the All Apps section.

Next, fill out the form.

The red star behind App title and URL marks this information is obligatory.

Filling out the description can help the admin to decide whether or not the app is of any use.


Add http(s):// for external links when typing in the URL.

How to manage a suggested App

To manage the suggested apps, click on the rack-wheel icon and then on "Apps."

Within the app management, click on "Suggested Apps" to access all proposed apps. To edit a suggested app, click on the pencil icon.

How to edit a suggested App

Once you've clicked on the pencil icon, you can edit a suggested app.

You can change the title as well as the URL; the red stars are an indicator that these categories are obligatory.

Additionally, you are able to add/edit a short description, dedicate it to a specific department, upload an app icon, add labels, or add the app to a category.
