@Deleted There is no option of collections when using a site as an app in edge dev, can't save a page or any of it's content into collections.

There is no problem in adding this functionality as this would make more integrity between edge app and the browser and would make someone's work easier.

@hussain5416 this is definitely an interesting feature request. There are a number of features available in the browser that are not available in an installed site. Our current "escape hatch" is from the ... menu in the installed site that allows you to click to "Open in Edge" and take advantage of those features.

 

That said, I recognize this doesn't really satisfy your request. It's really just a workaround for now. I've created a issue on our backlog internally so we can consider this and cost it out.

@hussain5416 Thanks for the feature request, that's an interesting one. And @johnjansen, we appreciate you looking into this. :)

Can you name those other features here, so it would be easy to follow them & their development (obviously if the dev team wants to do it)
