  • You can use Zapier to automate campaigns. By adding the URL to the zapier webhook, we will send you important information to that webhook so you can use them.

  • You can integrate this app with your slack account and shorten directly from the slack interface using the command line below. This slack integration will save all of your links in your account in case you need to access them later. Please see below how to use the command.

    Add to Slack

    The slack command will return you the short link if everything goes well. In case there is an error, it will return you the original link. If you use the custom parameter and the alias is already taken, the script will automatically increment the alias by 1 - this means if you choose 'google' and 'google' is not available, the script will use google-1

  • By default, this script shortens all URLs in a page. If you want to target specific URLs then you can add a selector paramater. You can see an example below where the script will only shorten URLs having a class named mylink or all direct link in the .content container or all links in the .comments container
