How can we improve campusM?

Extend campusM URL schema to launch iOS, Android OR web app

Hi,

Given that campusM is device and platform agnostic. I would like to be able to use the campusM URL schema under a tile to provide mobile/tablet users with the option to launch a mobile app (iOS or Android or prompt to get the app as is now the case) AND also provide the option to go to a web app instead if preferred.

This would give users choice. For example, Outlook 365 and Blackboard web apps have far greater functionality and have quite a good responsive design for small screens. Mobile/tablet users should be able to choose if they want to to use the vendors associated app or go to the web view. Many students will need to go to the web app to complete certain tasks when on mobile or tablet and it would be great if they were able to choose.

High quality web apps do not require users to keep downloading apps to access services.

I understand that a desktop override can provide some level of web app support. I am not talking about providing different links based on platform or device. I am suggesting that the process of linking to existing services (not AEK) from a tile could be improved via a 3 way choice.

Thanks,
Ben
