Deep Link is a smart URL that allows you to send existing and potential users to a specific web view. You can send the link through an SMS, Push, or publish on your social media. For collaborations with different businesses (3rd party) it allows you to open your app within another app. For members without the app installed in the device, it will take them to the Google or Apple store.

Setup a web the view and add a custom query parameter called "openWebViewName" and the value can be anything ('Instagram' / 'ordering' / 'facebook').
