The Links plugin allows you to link to another website and place this link on the menu of your app. The Links plugin creates a bridge between your employee app and an external website, such as your company homepage. Opening a target-link using the Links plugin will navigate the user away from the employee app. For mobile users, the link opens in the mobile browser and for desktop users, it opens in a new tab. Install the Links plugin and create your very first menu link.
