Custom URL entered into browser does not open Kofax Mobile Capture for Android


Question / Problem: 

Entering a Custom URL into the browser's URL field on an Android device does not open Kofax Mobile Capture App 3.5 for Android.  

Answer / Solution: 

Due to a limitation in Android, entering a Custom KMC App URL into the browser's URL field will not open the Kofax Mobile Capture application.

However, if the user clicks a link on an HTML page that contains the Custom URL, the browser will open the KMC App for Android, connect to the shortcut defined in the URL and pre-populate any fields with the data supplied by the URL.

To resolve this issue:

1. Provide the Custom URL as a link on an HTML page.

2. Provide the user with the URL of the HTML page

3. Instruct the user to click the link that contains the Custom URL.
