This is how you can easily create a deep link between two modules
From now on you can create a deep link in your app (native and PWA). This means that your customers can e. g. jump from one module to another without having to take the detour via the Back button. Furthermore, it is possible for you to write a chat message and include a link to a specific module in it.
The content module is best suited for this purpose. You can use it to write a corresponding text in the editor that you want to link to another module.
Let’s say you would like to combine the sentence: Booking of an appointment with the module appointment booking. Proceed as follows:
- Open Edit > Publish > Publishing status
- Go to Web App and click on Visit
- Open Appointment booking module
- Copy URL of the module Appointment booking
For better differentiation two URL types which can be used are shown below:
Complete URL (from the appointment module): https://beautyklon.apptivate.it/?webapp=true#/module/4202308
Part of the URL (with the #): #/module/4202308
After that you add the Content module to your app in order to do the deep linking process:
- Under Edit > Modules > Create Content module
- Text: Booking of an appointment in the editor
- Mark the text Booking of an appointment
- Click on the Link Button (red arrow); the tab Link info opens
- Insert the URL of the appointment booking module in the blue window
- In the tab Target you define how the link should be opened. The best thing to do is to set Same window (_self) here; the link will then open immediately in the same window and not in a new window
- Click on the OK button
- Save your settings
- Then publish the changes you have made
With the PWA and native app you can copy and paste the complete URL as well as only a part of it (from the #). This is also possible with the native app, but when using the complete URL a new tab is opened in the selected browser of the mobile phone.
Link in a chat message
If, for example, your customer is on your website, you can immediately send him the link to make an appointment via chat. To do this, copy the URL of the app landingpage and paste it directly into the chat message. Your customer can call them immediately and make an appointment with you. Since the links are often very long, we recommend that you shorten them first. One service that offers this is, for example, bitly.com.
