Is there a way I can add a link to the data import tool to the user desktop?
No official way to do this.
Here’s the unofficial way.
- Go to Data Import Tool
- Open your browser console
- Paste this code and hit Enter
frappe.add_to_desktop('Data Import Tool', 'DocType')
How does that work? I presume it is linked to a browser only? So if I log in on a different computer, or with a different browser it will be gone again? What about if a different user logs in on the same computer?
I actually only want it on one computer on one log in so this is perfect for our use. Just intrigued how it works
@Ron_Taylor: yes, this is a session-specific link that exists while you keep your browser session open. It will be gone if you log in from a different browser session or a different computer (this will not be available to a different user on the same computer).
If you need such a link permanently, you will have to do custom software development to customize your instance of ERPNext
