Are you wanting to view use and create your go links on the go? With the iOS app, that is possible. This article is meant to assist in explaining how to add and use the GoLinks iOS App.
If you updated to version 4.0 and added the widget to your home screen, you may run into some issues with v4.1. It is suggested that you remove the widget and re-add it to your home screen.
Downloading the app
Head to the Apple app store in order to search for the GoLinks app. When you search for “GoLinks”, it may not be the first one to appear. Here is the one you should download:
Ensure that the company that it is made by is also GoLinks. You can also navigate to the app store page here.
Signing into the GoLinks iOS app
Once the app is downloaded, you will need to sign into your GoLinks account. Similar to when you are accessing GoLinks on a browser, below are the steps on how to sign into your account:
Clicking the “Log In” button will present you with a pop-up screen.
Sign in using your same company email. If you have an SSO sign-on option, this will appear on the next screen.
Using the GoLinks iOS app
Within the GoLinks app, there are a few different features you can use. If there are any additional features you feel would be beneficial to have, feel free to reach out to support with your feedback!
The Home page
The Home page allows for you to see and search through your company’s existing go links. Within this page, you can filter through your existing links easily using our quick hit filters. These are the same filters you see when you navigate to the GoLinks dashboard on your website browser. These filters include searching through top go links, new go links, your favorite go links, and your recently used links.
Clicking on one of the go links will navigate you to that go links webpage. Clicking on the three dots next to the name of the links allows for you to share the go link. You are also able to see which links are variable, favorited, and unlisted on this page. Each is denoted by a small banner above the link itself.
My go links
The “My go links” segment allows you to search through any go links you own directly. Whereas the “Home” page allows for you to search through all the available links, this allows you to only see ones owned by you. On this page, you can also see your variable, “unlisted”, and favorite go links the same way you are able to see them on the homepage. Favorite go links will be denoted with a star while variable unlisted will have a small “variable” or “unlisted” tag above the link.
Within the create segment, you have access to create your go links the same way as you would on your desktop device. As of right now, you will not be able to add tags from this creation tab. If your workspace allows for unlisted or public go links, you will be able to set that here.
Adding the GoLinks Widget to your home screen
With V4.0 and later of the GoLinks app, you can now add a GoLinks widget to your home screen. You would do this by first editing your home screen (typically this is done by holding down on an app or area of your phones home page). Once your apps are shaking/you are in the edit mode, click the plus sign in the upper left corner. This will show you all your available widgets.
Select the one for GoLinks.
Here is what it will look like once you have added the widget to your home screen and have signed in. You will be required to sign in once downloaded.
With the widget, you are able to open a search of your existing go links, open your recently used go links, and open your favorited go links. If you click on the GoLinks widget on your home screen while editing the page, you will be able to turn suggested files on and off.
