How to create Personalised Short Links using a TexAu


To use personalised short links with TexAu, add the Hyperise Integration into your recipe before your message spice.

For the Image Hash input, click the "Insert Variables" option to select your Hyperise image, which will then auto-complete the Image Hash.






The Destination URL should be the full URL (including http(s)://) that the short link will redirect to.  Hyperise will also push a personalisation  token through to the page, enabling the page to be personalised as well.


The Page Title and Page Description fields are used for the text that will be displayed above/below your image, depending on which platform you're sharing the short link on.


Within these inputs, we should add personalisation tags to further personalise the experience.



Finally use the Add A Field button to add personalisation data to be used within the image and landing pages.
