How to add frequently used apps on home screen?

On my ZFlip 3, I had a practical button on the home screen where I put frequently used apps. (Note, not a regular folder)

I could click and in a vertical or horizontal row bring up my selected apps.

Now on my Flip 5 I don't remember how I did…

Can you help me?

På min ZFlip 3 hade jag en praktisk knapp på hemskätmen där jag lagt ofta använda appar. (Obs, ingen vanlig mapp)

 
Jag kunde sär klicka och på en lodrät eller vågrät rad få upp mina valda appar.
 
Nu på min Flip 5 minnas jag inte hur.jag gjorde...
 
Kan ni hjälpa mig?
 
Mvh Martin

Hi @Martinhi 

Added English since we have users from all Scandinavian countries here 😊 Maybe our tech mod @Daniel-M can share some tips?

Hi @Martinhi!

I apologize for the late reply. I suspect you mean the feature called edge panels. You can activate this feature by going to settings > Display > Edge panels. When this is on, you can swipe left from the edges of the screen and you will get a small panel where you can add the apps you use most. Should it not be this, you're welcome to contact our customer support for more help:

Hi and thanks, I'm using widget panels all the time but the feature I had earlier made it able to add more apps underneath the earlier lockscreen options "phone" or "camera"

Hi again. If you remember, ther used to be one phone button and one camera button on the lock screen...
For a while there was a possibility to store your favorite apps for quick access on the home screen. If one pressed it, the app lined upp and you could touch the one you wanted to use for the moment.
I really miss it...

Hi @Martinhi!

This function should still remain on the phone. You can activate it in settings > Lock screen > Edit lock screen.  If you have problems finding it, you are welcome to contact our customer support for more help.

Hi Daniel and thanks for your concern. I found a function where I could switch app from ie camera to flashlight. But there was no way ta make a "choice" of app under an icon to show on the screen.
I was in contact with CS yesterday but they didn't know about it...
Say you chose 5 usable apps and put them in that function. You could the just hold the icon and the apps would pop up in either a vertical or lateral row...
I wonder I'd it could've been in GoodLock... 🤔😐

Bump!
I'm sorry for going on about this gone feature and maybe I'm describing it badly since I'll make new try:

On my home screen I could earlier create a folder containing my choice of usable apps. When tapping that folder, the apps came out in a row, either vertical or horizontal.
It sure was the fastest way to get a frequent app running.

I've watched so many UI 5 videos my head start boiling 😅

Best Regards

I found the app! It's the "app shortcut" within Good Lock?
