Deep Links: Are they permanent?

What I wanted to do: Be able to send a deep link in an email to send the user to a specific screen - e.g. a menu page.

Background: I’ve been testing the deep link functionality, and I’m not getting results from it. It is giving me the home URL for the app only. (yes, the table had Row ID column, but it’s not a detail page) So I’m not sure what I’m looking for is viable.


  1. Are deep links only relevant for detail page end point? (not a custom detail page, or a list page, only a detail page accessed from a listing)
  2. Are they permanent? (aka they won’t change, so can be used to refer people to pages)

You need to copy the deep link directly from the web URL itself, not from inside the Glide Editor.

Apologies if I wasn’t clear.

I have been doing that. However, for some pages the URL is left as the home URL - there is nothing to copy. Others, yes.

Oh, unfortunately tabs don’t have deep links. I believe DL’s are created from lists. One way to get around this is to create a button that does a Link to Screen Action and recreate the tab. You should then get a deep link for that screen.
