iOS x-callback-url

Is there support for x-callback-urls on iOS? For example, I can link to ynab:// and it will open the app,  but could I do something like ynab://transaction?id=qerlqweroqwer324 to go straight to a particular transaction? or ynab://account?id=43ekjasdfoa to go straight to a particular account?

  • Hi Silver Orca !

    Do you mean a permanent link you can use? If you log in to your budget and click an account, you can copy and paste that URL in a separate window to open directly to that account. This will only work if you're already logged in and isn't available for specific transactions (only accounts).

  • I meant in the iOS app. So, I would like to be able to have a link from Pushover (generated by Zapier) to go to a specific transaction within the app.

    • Hi Silver Orca ! Thanks for letting us know. I'm going to move your question over to the API section of the forum, so we can get you an answer for that question. 😄

    • George Thanks. It would also be nice to be able to do other things with x-callback-urls like adding a transaction, so that you could use Siri Shortcuts to add transactions without using the web api. So it would work offline as well. And it could take you into the app.

      Silver Orca If you have a moment, would you mind submitting a Feature Request for that? That lets our development team know what's important to you. Thanks!

      And anyone else interested can do the same. :)

  • Silver Orca  You can create a Shortcut in the Shortcuts App, let's call it "Open YNAB". Its only action is "Open App: YNAB". You then attach the URL "shortcuts://run-shortcut?name=Open%20YNAB" to your PushOver message, and boom only 27 hacky steps later the App is opening 🙈🙈🙈

    • Sea Green Saxophone That’s true. You can also do the same thing without Shortcuts with the url “ynab://”, but it only opens the Ynab app and I want to be able to go directly to a particular transaction.

  • Quite obvious the team have no idea what callback urls are.

    • Tetsugaku I probably should have said URL schemes. https://thesweetsetup.com/getting-started-with-url-schemes/

      I would also be happy if they supported the same thing with Shortcuts on iOS 13.

    • Silver Orca oh I know why you mean, so should they. But given the level of support for anything more than “what button do I press next”. I wouldn’t hold my breath.
