GoLinks for Microsoft Teams

Overview

The GoLinks Microsoft Teams integration allows teams to easily discover and share go/links in any public channel. When a go/link is used in a message, the bot will respond with a thumbnail that contains information about the go link. Clicking on the thumbnail will redirect users to the destination URL. 

Note that the bot only sends notifications and you are not able to chat or @mention it.

Prerequisites

In order for the redirects to work, you need to have an active account with GoLinks and must be logged in. You can sign up for a free account at the Sign Up Page

For new accounts, please make sure to first create go/links in the GoLinks dashboard so that they can be resolved in Microsoft Teams. If the bot does not find a valid go/link for your workspace, it will let you know that it is invalid.

Installation

Please follow these steps to install the GoLinks Microsoft Teams application:

  1. Go to your Microsoft Teams account and on the Apps page, search for GoLinks.
  1. Click on the GoLinks app and in the modal, click Add to a team.
  2. Enter the name of the team or channel name and click Set up a bot.
  1. Once the bot is set up, a welcome message is sent to the General channel. That is it, you are ready to start using the app!

Using the app

Once the GoLinks Microsoft Teams app is installed and added to a channel, you can start using go/links in any conversation and the bot will resolve them. An example might be reminding your team to check their calendar by going to go/cal or to find the product backlog at go/backlog

If you need help or have questions about the app, please reach out to support@golinks.io.
