Customizing Lockdown Menu Templates

About this task

A lockdown menu template is an HTML file that controls how lockdown and its menu items appear on the device screen. SOTI MobiControl provides several templates or you can build your own menu templates for Lockdown mode.

The easiest way to create a custom lockdown menu template is to make a copy of one of the default templates and customize it.


  1. While editing a Lockdown profile configuration, click the Templates button to open the Edit Menu Template List dialog box.
  2. Select an existing menu template and click the Copy button.
  3. With the new template selected, select the Edit button to open the Lockdown Menu Template Editor.
    You can edit the template directly in the Lockdown Menu Template Editor dialog box or copy the HTML document into your favorite text editor to edit and then paste it back into the Lockdown Menu Template Editor when you are finished.
  4. When you are satisfied with your changes, save your new template by selecting the OK button in the Lockdown Menu Template Editor dialog box. Click Rename to enter a new name for your menu template in the New File Name field.
  5. Continue configuring your lockdown profile configuration.
