Managing Mobile App Functionality with Universal Links: Challenges and Workarounds
In this meeting, the main issue discussed is the problem faced when connecting to a data source on a mobile device versus a website. The issue arises with universal links, where certain links open the app instead of the website, resulting in limited functionality. It is mentioned that there is no known way to override this behavior. The possible solutions proposed are either requesting the vendor to change the behavior (unlikely) or hiding the option for mobile users and redirecting them to the desktop version. It is acknowledged that using the app on a phone may not be ideal anyway. The meeting concludes with the understanding that there is currently no better solution to this problem, but the participants express a desire to be informed if any advancements occur. The conversation then moves on to discussing the progress of app builds.
