Combining your site address with the shoot key/access key into a link

Applies to: IOS


When notifying your customers of their shoot key electronically (email, SMS, web) it is possible to combine your site's URL with the shoot key/ access key into one link. Clicking the link will then take the customer directly to the site and pre-enter their key.

The format for the link is different in the older versions of IOS compared to the new IOS3

Old IOS 2

Consider the website https://online.acmephoto.com.au and the shoot key 4LPZALLH. Rather than send the customer two separate pieces of information (link and shoot key) the two can be combined into one link as

https://online.acmephoto.com.au/login_shoot?shoot_key=4LPZALLH

Of course it is possible to simply display the shoot key with a link to the complete URL

New IOS 3

The format has changed in the new IOS. With IOS 3 the site and key above become:

https://online.acmephoto.com.au/ordering/with?key=4LPZALLH

Note the links above are for demonstration purposes only and are not valid sites.
