You can link from anywhere to specific content within the app with normal links or with deep links. For example, you can link to the app in a newsletter or in your intranet. Normal links always open the web app in an internet browser.
The great advantage of deep links is, that they open the native app. If clicked on a mobile device that has the app installed the deep link will automatically open the native app. Deep links also work on a computer or on a mobile device without the app. On mobile devices, if the app is not installed, it leads to a website where you select between downloading the app or proceeding with the web app. On computers, the deep link opens the web app in an internet browser.
To directly open the content within the app the user must be signed in to the app on the device. If the user is not signed in the deep link will only open the sign-in page of the app. After the sign-in the user must click on the deep link again to open the content within the app.
