What's new

Rebrandly updates and changes (Changelog)

July 18th, 2019
Active Teammates 🏃🏽‍♀️
Some Rebrandly plans include teammates, extra users you can add to your workspaces to share branded links as a team. Previously, each time you invited a teammate to a workspace they counted against your teammate quota, which varies from account to account. From now on, Rebrandly will only count users who logged in during that billing cycle (month) against your quota. This means if you have a quota of 25 teammates but have invited 30, you'll only get charged over quota if all 30 teammates log in and use their accounts. Find more info on teammates here.


July 10th, 2019
Notification List Updates 💡
Users can now see additional updates in their notifications timeline, including info on their usage and warnings when they come close to plan thresholds for links and clicks. 


July 2nd, 2019
A+ Encryption Quality for Branded Links 🔐
We’re committed to security and make continuous improvements to our platform to empower your branded links with first-class security standards. Under the oversight of our engineers, all branded domains in Rebrandly are now getting the A+ grade in the encryption quality testing tool provided by Qualys SSL Labs. This means that when web browsers attempt to navigate a branded link, our servers will force them using a strongly encrypted communication channel first so that your traffic can’t be hijacked (and redirected elsewhere) or decrypted later.


June 27th, 2019
Improved Dashboard Performance 🚀
Our engineers have made updates to our dashboard to reduce the download bundle so that every time users connect, the experience will be faster and more efficient- particularly for mobile users. They'll be making more optimizations in the coming weeks too, to keep the platform running as smooth as possible. 


June 11th, 2019
In-App Notifications 🔔
Event notifications are now live in your account! By clicking on the bell icon next to your avatar, you can see a recap of the latest events and updates in your account. Click on "Events timeline" on the bottom of the list to open a specific detail page. 

May 13th, 2019
Custom QR Codes ⌨️
Users can now add custom logos to QR codes generated from their branded links. If you're interested get in touch with our team to discuss adding this feature to your plan. 


May 1st, 2019
Desktop App for Mac Users 🖥
Our macOS app is available for desktop link rebranding! The app generates branded links that are available for you to use across applications, whether web-based or for use in other apps and tools. Download it here


April 16th, 2019
Extended Workspace Import 🚢
Link import can now be done in both classic workspaces and extended workspaces. Importing into extended workspaces allows users to create branded links in bulk by uploading a .CSV file, but still allows for auto expiry in the future. The link import feature may not be available in all subscriptions, get in touch with our team to discuss your plan. 


April 8th, 2019
Rebrandly LinkGallery 🖼
Our new LinkGallery app allows you to create one bio link for all your social media platforms. Create a short, snappy bio link that brings your users to a dedicated page, with a full gallery of links to relevant content, like your online shop, your blog, website, calendar and more. Create your LinkGallery today! 



April 1st, 2019
Updated Slashtag Suggestor 🐌
When you're creating branded links in the dashboard, Rebrandly auto-generates a random slashtag (URL slug) for you. If you don't want or need to use a specific keyword, you can always go with our suggestion. And now, our system will take the domain name you're using into account when selecting the slashtag. For users, this means shorter slashtags when using custom domains. 


March 18th, 2019
Downgrade or Delete Account Controls ☠️

We want to do everything we can to help our users empower their links, but with that said, sometimes customers need to downgrade or delete their Rebrandly accounts. Now, when you click on your account avatar and navigate to your subscription page and scroll to the bottom, you can request to downgrade or permanently delete your account (and all of the links/click data associated with it) directly from the dashboard. If you've got questions or concerns about your account please contact us today. Read more


March 8th, 2019
Teammate and Workspace List Optimization 👯‍♀️

We've added a workspace and teammate list to the Workspaces tab of the dashboard. This means that now, users with Workspaces enabled in their accounts can see a list of all the workspaces they own as well as a list of all the active teammates in those workspaces. From these lists, owners can bulk edit their workspaces as well as teammate permissions. If you haven't got workspaces as a part of your subscription, get in touch and we'll help you find the right plan!


March 1st, 2019 
Slash tag style selector ⌨️

We added new selection settings so you can decide what type of slash tag Rebrandly generates for you in the dashboard when you're creating branded links. While we recommend using a relevant keyword, you can also use a random or generic slash tag. Select from totally random, suggested (based on information from the destination URL), suggested with dashes or suggested with a combination of upper and lowercase letters. Learn more about the slash tag selector here.



February 22nd, 2019
Additional Filters for Dynamic Link Routing 🌎
Dynamic link routing allows you to send users who click on your links to different destination URLs based on different rules, such as the language they're browsing in or the type of device their click comes from. We added a few additional filters for creating dynamic link routing rules. Now, users can set a variety of different timeframe rules, including Day of the Week, Hour of the Day and Between specific dates. 


February 14th, 2019 
Permanent Deletion Update 🗑
Previously, when removing a branded link users had the option to move it to a trash folder which would stop its redirect and click stats collection, leaving the user had the option to restore that link in the future. Otherwise, they could opt to permanently delete the link immediately. Effective immediately we've removed the "trash" function for branded links. This means that when you hit the delete button and confirm you'd like to proceed, that link will be permanently deleted from your account. You won't be able to restore it in the future and you'll lose all the click stats immediately. If you've got any questions or concerns about trashed links, don't hesitate to reach out
