types of short_url links

February 12, 2021 at 9:17pm
I'm utilizing short_urls when saving review links. I'm also making player links as well download(original) links. Is there any ability to grab short URLs for other types of links beyond review links?

Hey (dsetter1)! That’s a good question. I looked into it and as far as I can tell, we only offer short links on review and presentation links.
At this time I don’t think there’s much incentive to enable shortening on other links since the user would have to be logged in to access a project, folder, or player link anyways - in which case a vanity link is less useful.
If you really want your own short links in more places, I would recommend setting up your own URL shorter via rebrandly or bitly with your own domain. I’ve done that for several companies now and even hooked it up to slack as a Slash command. I’d be happy to share some code samples with you for that if you’d like!

No problem, makes sense. Thought I'd check before going the 3rd party shortener route. Thanks for your response!
