Mobile Favorites are reports, charts, hyperlinks, and any other item type, except Reporting Objects, Schedules, Distribution Lists, and Access Lists, that are added to the Mobile tab in the Favorites list in Dashboard. Adding items to Mobile Favorites enables you to display the items on mobile devices. Items can be added to Mobile Favorites from a tree, List block, Folder block, Tree block, or Content Search result. To add items to your Mobile Favorites list, right-click the item and select Add to Mobile Favorites. All items that are listed in the Mobile tab of your Favorites list will be displayed on the Mobile Favorites launch page when you log on from a mobile device.
