How to Auto Navigate Pages (Windows Only)

Getting started with Touch Portal

This guide will help you understand how to use the automatic page switching.

Automatic Page Switching

In Touch Portal you can set up your pages to become active when you activate a certain application on your Windows computer. Lets say for example that you want to show a page when you activate Photoshop. Touch Portal lets you do this.

Lets select the page you want to set up the auto navigation for. In our case this is our (main) page. You can find the options for the auto navigation system under the 'Page Settings' and then opening the third tab. The next section will explain what options you have in this system.

Auto navigation options

To set up a proper dynamic experience, just one option to auto navigate will not be enough. Here are the options you can set for a page



No Auto navigation

Setting this option means that this page will not react on Windows applications being activated. It will not be aware of the system. As the page is not part of the auto-navigation system it will also not block other automatich navigations.



When process filename contains

You can put here the process filename or only a part of it. Everytime a Windows application becomes activated, Touch Portal will check the full file path of the process and check if it matches the criteria you put in this field. In our case we should add "photoshop" in here.

Be careful in what you enter here, for example, using "photo" would also trigger other applications that have photo in there path name. If the criteria activates multiple pages, only one is used. There is no guarantee which one that will be and it can be different each start up of Touch Portal.



When application window title contains

You can put here the window title or only a part of it. Everytime a Windows application window becomes activated, Touch Portal will check the title of that window and check if it matches the criteria you put in this field.

Be careful in what you enter here, several applications could have titles that have the same criteria as you use here. If the criteria activates multiple pages, only one is used. There is no guarantee which one that will be and it can be different each start up of Touch Portal



Go to this page by default

When this setting is selected, this page will be activated on the mobile device everytime a different application is being activated on your Windows desktop but which does not match any of the pages you have set up the "When process filename contains" or the "When application title contains" option.



Do not allow auto-navigation when this page is active

Select this option if you want to block auto navigation when you are on this page on your mobile device. No matter what criteria is being met, no matter if you have set up a default page to go to, this will block all of that and basically disable the auto navigation system when you are on this page. The only way to leave this page will be through normal navigation actions.



Show list of processes

To get a list of all processes currently active and get their current window title you can press this button. It will gather all the information and show you the results in a list of that moment in time. This is very handy when you want to have a complex auto navigation structure.
