Overview


With the Unilink feature, you can create a "single" link where your customers will be redirected to the page you want them to visit. It can be your social media page, web URL, play store or registration page. 

Under UniLink, there are 2 different spaces to explore - Deep linking and Deferred Deep linking


TABLE OF CONTENTS



Deep linking Vs Deferred Deep linking

  • In the context of mobile apps, deep linking consists of using a uniform resource identifier (URI) that links to a specific location within a mobile app rather than simply launching the app. Deferred deep linking allows users to deep link to content even if the app is not already installed.
  • Deferred deep linking is a form of deep linking that is deferred until someone downloads and opens the app. It allows users to go directly to the location they desire within an app. Deferred deep linking is used when a customer does not have the app installed.


Steps to follow for linking

  • Go to "Deep linking" and choose "Unilink".


  • You will be given the option to choose and create your template based on your requirements
  • Add the name of the template along with the application and the subdomain. 


  • You will be allowed to choose to redirect the customers to google play or the app store based on whether the application is installed or not. You will be asked to enter the API link of the page you want your customers to be redirected to and in case of iOS you will have to add iOS bundle ID.
  • If already installed you can add the URL of the destination page you want your customers to be redirected to.

  • URI provides a means to retrieve a file from within a package using similar semantics to performing a GET request over HTTP.  URI schemes are used as a fallback method for opening the app on iOS on a few specific browsers/platforms. You can either choose no fallback or have a common one for Android and iOS.
  • If someone opens your URL from a desktop and not mobile you can also choose to either redirect them to the play store or to a different URL.
