dynamic desktop url in deep link in the dashboard
I am new in this awesome branch.io I have deep link. I want to redirect desktop users to a dynamic web url e.g my deep link; https://www.mydeeplink/branchString i will use a dynamic query string e.g https://www.mydeeplink/branchString?myParam=someParam I want to set dynamic desktop url: desktop redirect url should be like this : http://www.mysite.com/someresoures/someParam Is it possible or should I handle it in the server my self? One more thing need clarification: I want to use deep link for user invitations. I want to send a simple deep link(e.g click this link for details: https://www.mydeeplink/branchString?myParam=someParam) in the invitation content. If user in the mobile then it will automatically check if app installed or not. If installed then it will open app in ios or android redirect url(that set in the redirect setting) if not installed then it will redirect user to app store and after completing installation and login then user will be redirected to ios or android redirected url, right? If user in desktop then it will redirect to desktop redirect url, right?
main goal is that I want to use same link for mobile( with the functionality of app isntalled checking) and desktop.
Thanks in advance.
Hey – thanks for posting the question. Please find my answers below:
- Yes, you can provide Desktop redirect url dynamically. All you would need to do is append ?$dektop_url=<<url here>> to the Branch link and then URL encode the string. Please note that the url will be break if not properly encoded.
- The invitation or referral use case you mentioned is very well handled by Branch out of the box across all the platforms. All you would need to do is add the invitation content metadata as the deep link data on the link.
Let me know if you have more questions. Thanks!
