One of the many useful functions in CONNECT is Direct Login. This feature connects to your crew web portal without the hassle of inserting your login credentials. Direct Login will do those steps for you and then open-up the web-portal. From there, you can review some messages or review your latest roster.
However, since we are using an in-app browser, navigation is limited to direct accessible pages. Navigation to pages that open-up in a new browser window, will open-up inside the same window. As such, the application looses the thread to the original underlying web-page. At this point, you get stuck in the navigation.
There is no technical solution to that, it is simply a limitation you need to take in mind while using the Direct Login function.
