Site Bookmarks


The Site Bookmarks feature enables Site Administrators to configure a set of Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to be available to all Flywheel site users. Common use cases include linking to an organization’s internal Information Technology (IT) support resources or documentation for the organization’s policies/procedures governing the use of the site. When clicking on a bookmark, the URL configured for it will open in a new tab in the same browser window.


Only Site Administrators may add, modify, and delete bookmarks or change an order.

  4. Once the Bookmarks have been added/deleted/modified, click on the Save button at the bottom of the screen.

    save bookmarks

  5. Verify that clicking on the Bookmark(s) works as expected to ensure there are no broken links.

Usage Considerations

  • The Flywheel system does not perform validation on the URLs so when one adds or modifies a Site Bookmark, the Site Admin should verify that all URLs work as expected.
  • Only web URLs are supported, while other service types or javascript are not
  • Bookmark names are limited to 64 characters
  • This feature is optimized for use cases of 5 or fewer bookmarks, although configuring more is possible.
