How to create a publication that opens a webpage, an online video or another app (Weblink publication)

Follow

The publication called "Weblink" allows you to create a publication that will open a website in the in-app browser.

Select the kiosk where the weblink publication needs to be published, and insert the link to the webpage that needs to be opened when tapping the cover.

You could also use the Weblink publication to show an online video. Just insert a link to a MP4 file on the internet and the video will start to play when tapping the cover in the app.

If you need to change the weblink, open the edition and click "change URL".

To open another iOS app, you need to find the link to the app in the appstore. You can find this link by sharing the app from the appstore. The link will look like https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/d!nk-connect-engage.-prove./id1113437246?mt=8 (link for the dink app). 

Follow these steps to make this link available in the weblink publication:
1) change https:// to itms-apps:// to direct the link to open the appstore
2) remove the country indication in the link (in example above: remove /us )
3) paste the link in the weblink publication

 

You can also sync Weblinks using the Google Drive sync. In Windows file explorer, create a shortcut to a webpage and d!nk will create a weblink publication in that kiosk/collection. 


Note: the sync of weblinks only works for Windows PCs, unfortunately not for Mac.
