Popular Go Links to Get Started With

Building a good base of initial go links is crucial to having a successful adoption of go links at your company. In this post, we’ll go over some popular go links to get started with.

In the beginning, creating those first few go links does take some thought because the possibilities are endless. Each company is different, and the go links that are popular at your company will be different from another company depending on the size of the company and industry.

Here are a few guidelines and tips to help you get started when creating those first few go links.

  • Keep it short
  • Make it memorable
  • Be general

A good example is go/docs. It’s short, easy to remember and can be used by everyone.

A bad example is go/microsoft-word-document. It’s long, hard to remember, and is not general. If your company one day wants to switch from Microsoft Office to Google Docs, everyone will need to remember a new link. But with go/docs the go link can stay the same but the URL can change.

Need some ideas?

If you’re new to the company, find someone who can help champion the effort of building out the initial go links. Someone who’s been with the company often, and knows which tools and websites employees access the most.

Here is a list of the most popular go links we’ve seen companies use to get started, and you should use them too!

New Hire

When new employees are joining the company, there are a ton of questions they will have about how to get started. Giving them a go/link to find all that information is a great tool for onboarding

Org Chart

Another highly used go link we see is for organizational charts. People want to know who someone is, and how to contact them.


Quickly accessing your email, calendar, notes or docs, are great uses for go links.


Employees want to know which holidays they get off so they can plan their vacations. Also useful for tracking employee expenses on business trips.


This is by far the most popular used go/link at most companies. Employees want to know what’s for lunch!


Tracking quarterly goals, and personal goals are a key strategy for most companies, and getting to those goals quickly is a benefit of go links!

Task Manager

Daily tasks that product managers and individual contributors need to access all the time become very popular go links. Fun Fact, go/jira is the most used go link across all companies (Probably because the JIRA URLs are so complicated!)


Having computer problems? Employees need a quick way to contact IT and make sure they get their computers back up and running.


For those few times a year, like open enrollment or tax season, employees want to be able to quickly access their benefits and paychecks!


Engineering departments are by far the biggest users of go links, maybe because they deal with complicated URLs all day, and prefer the terminal-like aspect of GoLinks.


Recruiters seem to be the second biggest users of go links, and here are some popular links.
