The previous article was about links export, thus you know that Short.cm allows downloading existed short branded links from the Short.cm dashboard to the PC.
Short.cm links import feature
Short.cm provides customers with links import too. If you have links which are already branded by another shortening platform, you may easily transfer them to Short.cm. This feature lets keep links without losing the original URL and associated data.
Why do you need this?
Imagine that you decided to change the shortening service. As URLs data is important for you, you can’t let links be vanished. In such a way, you just export links from your ex-shortening service and import them to Short.cm. As a result, links are transferred with all attached as well as necessary information.
For today Short.cm imports links only from Bitly, but it is expected to widen this list.
Note: if talking about Bitly service, only users with paid plans may export short links. Free users have access only to tagging and hiding bitlinks.
How to import links to Short.cm?
- Export short links from the shortening service you currently use.
- Open Short.cm “Integrations & API”.
- Scroll down. You will see an import section on the bottom of the page.
- Download necessary file to the dotted square.
- Go to the Short.cm dashboard and check your links.
Hope you enjoy this feature!
