How do I add my Book.app mini-site as a shortcut icon to my iOS device?


It is possible to add a Book.app shortcut icon to your iPhone or iPad home screen so that it displays and opens like an app


To do so, first ensure you have added an Online Icon Image to your mini-site custom settings. The image you add here will be the app icon on your device's home screen. 

Go to the Online Booking > Book.app > Customise Site page

In the Upload your logo section, click on the Select File... button next to Online Icon Image, then follow the prompts to add your image


 

See How do I customise my Book.app mini-site? for more information on customising your mini-site


Then open the Safari browser on your iPhone or iPad and go to your Book.app mini-site

You can locate your mini-site URL via the web app by clicking Online Booking > Book.app > Visit your Site. The URL will display in the browser bar.


When you have your Book.app mini-site open in Safari on your device, tap the Action icon in the bottom tool bar




Scroll up through the list of options and tap Add to Home Screen





Tap Add





The Online Icon Image will display on your home screen the same as your other apps. Tap on it to open your mini-site like an app.
