Links are available in all our plans. They allow you to create shorter URLs that will dynamically open according to your users' devices. In this page you can setup all the configuration needed to create Links that open your app (if installed), the app store (if not installed) or ultimately a web page if executed in a non-mobile device.
To access these pages, expand the Settings menu and click in Services like shown below:

Please note that before you finish successfully this setup, this service will show the Inactive sign. While inactive you will not be able to create any Links of type Dynamic Link.

You start by adding one in the following field:
Clicking the Add button will automatically create a prefix (if it does not exist yet):
