Create favorite applications

Move commonly used applications to favorites for quick-access in the EAA Login Portal. Your organization can have many applications associated with an identity provider (IdP). Employees may use some applications more frequently than others. User1 may frequently use application1, application2, application3, while user2 may use application1 and application5 more frequently than others. If you enable tagging favorite applications in an IdP, each user can customize their own EAA Login Portal. User simply moves frequently used applications to the favorites section of the Login Portal. Favorites work also on mobile devices or tablets.

When tagging favorite applications is enabled, application cards have the favorites icon (red hollow heart) visible. After user clicks the favorites icon to tag it as favorite, the favorites icon changes to full red heart.

When tagging favorite applications is disabled, application cards do not have favorites icon visible, and cannot be tagged as favorite by users. If you do not enable tagging favorite applications in the IdP, users cannot move any of the applications associated with this IdP to favorites section.

Tagging favorite applications also works with application categories. Applications tagged as favorite in each of the categories appear in the Favorites section of each category. They are also in the Favorites section of the All category.
