Create Links

Links allow you to redirect or present content to users. Those interactions will be automatically tracked for you whenever users open those links.

In any of your apps you'll find a menu item called Links as follows:

Main Menu

Then go ahead and click in the New Link button in the top right corner:

Then you should choose one of the types available. There are 3 different types of Links, Redirect, Landing Page and Dynamic Link:

type

When you choose Redirect you are able to provide 3 different URLs. Web (mandatory), iOS and Android (optional) which will be the targets that our system will redirect to depending on the platform the user is using. Please note that iOS and Android are optional and when not present we will simply use the Web URL.

When you choose Landing Page you are able to provide 3 different markup variations. Web (mandatory), iOS and Android (optional) which will be the content rendered depending on the platform the user is using.

When you choose Dynamic Link you are able to provide 3 different URLs. Web, iOS and Android (all mandatory) are the targets that our system will redirect to depending on the platform the user is using. Please note that iOS and Android should be supported URL Schemes by your app and will be used in a mobile device that has the app installed. When opened in a desktop we will simply use the Web URL.

When Dynamic Link is selected you will need to also select the prefix you want to use. Prefixes can be created as explained here.

For the Dynamic Link type you can also define if the link should redirect users to the app stores when it is opened by a user in a mobile device where the app is not yet installed:

show app store

For this option to have any effect, you need to make sure you've completed your setup as explained here.

Optionally you can also add segmentation rules to your links. This will allow you automatically categorize users/devices whenever these links are used. For that simply select the type of rule and add as many as you want in the field below:

Learn more about how to setup segmentation rules in our guides located here.

Additionally you can also create custom events whenever these links are used. Simply provide one or more event names in the field below:

custom events

Start by adding one event by clicking in the Add One? button, that will create an entry like the one below:

custom event

Provide a name for your event, this will be the name you can use when exporting events of this type or when using this custom event in automation connectors. If you want to add more events, simply click in the Add another event button:

add another event button

These events will then be visible in the Events area whenever users click this link or available for you whenever you create Automation Connectors using custom events. By default we will also register an event of type re.notifica.event.link.Click.

When you ready to create your link, make sure you click the Create Link button to store it:
