Hey guys. I was sure that i could control lightgroups directly from my dashboard favourites… did this feature become disabled when some new update hit the air?
Help me out please

If you mean in the SmartThings app, I don’t know of that ever being a feature. No you certainly could have a routine that turns on a group of apps and turn them on with one button push.

I use Trend Setter to create light groups and they show up in the dashboard favorites.

Smart Lighting or Routines are the built-in replacement.

Light groups were originally called “shortcuts.” And they did appear on the dashboard. The feature Disappeared in September 2015:

No longer available, but this is what it used to look like:


Thanks JD, didn’t know that.
