Link tags

Post image

Humans are highly organized beings. Well, at least, some of us are.

My wife for one loves sorting stuff into dedicated, labelled boxes. She claims it’s just easier to handle things when they are organized. And, comparing our experiences, rightly so!

That’s why we are introducing link tags: arbitrary labels that you can add to your short links to be able to find and group them easily.

You haven’t heard from us lately, and there’s a good reason for that it. Boy we’ve been busy!

Today, on our first anniversary, we’re proudly announcing the Teams functionality in once.to, making it fully suitable for business use.

It’s a major milestone in the evolution of once.to, which comes with a whole bunch of other improvements.

Have you already built your perfect short link, with a bunch of UTM parameters and a zillion of smart rules?

Creating and properly configuring a short link can require quite an effort and be time-consuming. And whenever you need to create another, a very similar one, you have to start over again. Annoying, innit? Error-prone, too.
