Shift can automatically detect if a clicked link is related to an app that you have added to Shift, and open in that app rather than a separate web tab. This feature is called "Smart Link Handling" and it's currently available in Shift Ultra (v9).

 

What is Smart Link Handling?

With Smart Link Handling, Shift can automatically detect if a clicked link is related to an app that you have added to Shift, and open the link in the respective app rather than a separate web tab. 

 

How do I use Smart Link Handling?

Whenever you click a link related to an app that you have added to Shift, you'll see a message on the right-hand side of your screen asking where you'd like this link to open. 

 

 

From here, you can choose where you'd like the link to open. If you tick the "Don't show this again for this app" box and make your selection, that will become the default for that specific app and you won't be prompted again unless you delete and re-install the app.
