Is it possible to place a shortcut to Titanium Backup schedule in ADW Launcher's drawer?

I guess that one way would be to make a small app whose only job would be to launch TB's schedule by some kind of intent, but I couldn't find any information on intents provided by TB, and also making an app for such a simple task seems an overkill.

I am using CyanogenMod 7 (so it's rooted and so on...) and TB Pro.

What's the problem with TB's widget... – Evil Angel Mar 18 '12 at 18:13
@SachinShekhar: You cannot put widgets into drawers AFAIK. And I don't want it on homescreen because it's not something I actually do frequently, so why should it take space there? – liori Mar 18 '12 at 18:48
ADW launcher does support only apps in drawer, so you'll have to create app, as you said. – Evil Angel Mar 18 '12 at 18:51
@SachinShekhar: Are there then other launchers similar to ADW which can do that? – liori Mar 18 '12 at 21:48
No. I have checked it in all popular launchers. Drawers were never been designed for this. For custom shortcuts, you can always use Homescreen. – Evil Angel Mar 18 '12 at 21:54

Its not possible. App Drawer is designed to keep default shortcut of apps.. not custom shortcuts!
You can always use Homescreen to place custom shortcuts. I recommend you to use TB's widget. As ADW Launcher provides option to add multiple homescreens, space shouldn't be a problem.
