Add your app to AppsFlyer

Apps in AppsFlyer are setup using their mobile store identifiers so that AppsFlyer can redirect users to them. Therefor, you should only setup the apps that you will release to the public (not internal apps).

Before you begin, find your apps store URL from GooglePlay or the AppStore. If your app is not yet released you will need either your Android app identifier or your iOS AppStore Apple ID.

  1. Login to your AppsFlyer account.
  2. Tap on Add app, then follow the setup.
  3. Follow the Android and iOS specific set up steps to complete setup. For iOS, make sure to set up uninstall tracking.

You can rename your app by tapping on it then navigating to App Settings on the left. The name setting is at the bottom.

Creating OneLink templates may require app configuration but will require an app release. You will likely only ever need one OneLink template for your app.

If you are updating your existing apps to Poq apps and already have an AppsFlyer account with OneLinks set up you can skip to step 5 and pass the subdomain of your OneLink template to your developers. Otherwise, you will need agree a subdomain with your developers. This is usually the name of your app without spaces.

  1. Login to your AppsFlyer account.
  2. Tap on any app then navigate to OneLink Custom Links.
  3. It should show you the welcome guide, tap Get Started.
  4. Give your template a name; e.g. the name of your app or something like Default.
  5. Choose a good and suitable subdomain for your links; e.g. the name of your app poq.onelink.me.
  6. Select your iOS and Android app.
  7. Leave When app isn't installed as it is to take users to the apps store page. Alternatively, you could use an app promoting landing page on your website.
  8. For When the app is installed continue on.
  9. For iOS, select launch the app using Universal Links, then the same on the popup, and enter the IDs (you may need to check with your developer to find these).
  10. If you have any iOS test apps (such as separate internal UAT, Staging or Prod apps) you can add these in the same way here. This allows testing links on these apps in the order you add them.
  11. For the fallback, agree on and enter a URL scheme for deeplinks that can open both the Android and iOS app.
  12. Enter your website URL for the Desktop setting.
  13. Tap the Generate OneLink template button in the bottom right.
  14. Finally, follow the Android and iOS specific set up steps to complete setup.

You have set up your OneLink template and are ready to create and test OneLinks!
