How to Use the Get Links Functionality

One of the cool things about Trackmage is that it lets you filter out parcels based on certain criteria such as order ID and email. When you are done filtering, it will generate a link to the tracking page where the parcels you filtered out will be displayed. 

Below is a sample tracking page. In this instance, the parcels have been filtered out using Origin Carrier, which happens to be DHL.

Without a link, you can't view or access a tracking page. To save you the trouble of manually generating links to tracking pages, we incorporated a Get Links functionality into TrackMage. 

It's pretty easy to use, and here are the steps to using it. 

Step 1

Log into your dashboard. Use the grid filter to set sort out the parcels you are looking for. If you don't know how to use the filtering system, check out this article.

For this example, we want to filter out parcels shipped by DHL. So, in the Origin Carrier field, we chose DHL Express.

Then click Get Links.

Step 2.

In the Get Links popup box, select the tracking page you would like to use. If you don't know how to create tracking pages yet, read this tutorial. After that check the Use Filter From Grid field. This is important, as doing so will make Trackmage apply your filter criteria. 

Step 3

Click the Generate CSV button. 

Upon click, you will get a notification telling you that the file is ready for download. 

Click the Download button to download the generated CSV file.

Note: Depending on the number of links you are generating, it might take a while for TrackMage to generate the CSV file. For example, if you wanted to generate 100,000 links at a time, it will take a while for TrackMage to generate the CSVs. Not to worry, as soon as the file is generated, you will be notified. 

After the download, open the file, copy the link and paste it into your browser.

And you are done.

What if you wanted to get links to all the carriers, instead of only DHL,  at the same time? Well, you can!

In the Tracking Number page, this time around, click the Get Link button without applying any filter. If you had used a filter before, ensure it is cleared. 

In the Get Links popup box, select a tracking page. Next, select Origin Carrier from the "Get link for each" field. Ensure "List of All links" field is checked.

Like aforetime, generate the CSV file and download it. In the file, you will see links to the tracking page for all the carriers.

Copy the one you want and paste in your browser.
