Deep Linking

Follow

Applies to: Pro, Plus, & Enterprise Plans

Many areas of Absorb5's Learner Interface can be navigated and automated through the use of deep links. Here are a few additional notes to get you started:  

  • To build any of the following deep links, simply replace the red text with your own information.  
  • If you use a custom URL with your LMS, replace the https://yourdomain.myabsorb.com part of each link with your custom URL 
  • If you access your LMS through myabsorb.ca or myabsorb.eu you'll have to replace the .com part of each link with .ca or .eu 
  • Many of the following deep links are case sensitive 
  • Many of the following deep links will require you to populate IDs for your LMS content (courseid, resourceid, etc.). These IDs can be found in Absorb's various reports by enabling the ID column in your layout: 

Login Methods
