Disable Drag Refresh option for SOTI Surf

Disable Drag Refresh option for SOTI Surf

I wanted to see if there was a way to disable the drag refresh option for SOTI surf.

We are currently using the browser as this is easy to configure site restrictions but the functionality has been an issue for some folks and we wanted to look into any other means of customization.

Additionally is there any plans on other color options?

Hi Joe,

 

Thanks for the interesting post!

Unfortunately, drag refresh and color options are not yet implemented in SOTI Surf. But Feature request has been raised to include them in the future versions of SOTI Surf. I will notify you on the same post when we have it on the website.

Thanks I like many of the features and lock down ability Soti Surf has to offer but I get feedback on the little things. Is there anyway to move the home button or even just hide the URL while leaving the home accessible?

Turn on the kiosk mode in Soti Surf profile payload, and then enable Home screen "Catalog" and  add your home URL as one of the item in the home screen.

Hi Joe,

 

You can disable the Home screen on SOTI Surf Configurations if there is no need of Home page and having the home accessible.

If in case you are looking to add particular URL as your Home screen of Surf, then you have to include it under Home screen URL:

Catalog will allow you to include multiple websites on the Home-screen:

We want the home button but didn't need the URL the home however being at the bottom was in an awkward position for most and would have preferred to move it to the top as most browsers have it located there. The option would be nice.

You can try a CSS setting on your web page to disable the Chrome feature, till change is made to SOTI Surf:

Works at least for Chrome..

it is great information to have however I don't believe this would work for the sites outside of my control. Firefox doesn't have the drag to refresh option though.

Sadly by going outside of SOTI we loose some of the lock down features so this was a give and take

Soti has added an option to Surf V15.2 to enable/disable pull to Refresh!

 

I updated Surf, and then sent a package with the script below to the device, I made the package dependent on Surf V15.2, below is the contents of the script:

sendinfo net.soti.action.surf DISABLEPULLTOREFRESH 1

You could also just send it from the console, but, I wanted to make sure new devices got it down the road.

 

Here is the message I got from Soti Support (They were awesome and responded to me within 1 hour!!):

 

This feature is available from SOTI Surf v15.2 and will be available on MobiControl v15.3 Web Console.

The following script only works for SOTI Surf v15.2 and above:
 

sendinfo net.soti.action.surf DISABLEPULLTOREFRESH 0/1

Default - Pull to refresh is allowed
DISABLEPULLTOREFRESH 0 - Pull to refresh is allowed
DISABLEPULLTOREFRESH 1 - Pull to refresh is not allowed

 

Thanks Soti Support Team!!

You should be able to do it now on the most recent version. You can send the script to the device to disable the feature
