Best GoLink

Best GoLink available in the internet and affordable.

PROS

It is easy to register the urls with a simple word associated to the content. Also the mobility among different computer is really useful.

CONS

Other than the GoLink feature I am not using. Maybe it is just because I was looking for the Google substitution for GoLink.

Simple, reliable, flawless.

Can't praise internal link shorteners enough, or Trotto as the most convenient one enough. Really glad we found it so soon after it launched, it's made the last few years a lot easier for our growing org.

PROS

Our users can get up-and-running with Trotto in under a minute—and after that, the experience 'just works' for them. It's rare that such a high-utilization tool is this seamless and transparent to end-users. It makes every part of working at our organization not just simpler, but 'feel' like transitioning into the tech world to employees who come from government. If you haven't used an internal link shortener before, the difference between your staff needing to pass around unmemorable long URLs, vs. memorable quick links (e.g., go/file-a-bug, or go/security-onboarding) is a lot higher than you'd think. People use the service in creative ways to socialize their work internally, and to help others contribute to it. Given how inexpensive Trotto is, it's very worth it.

CONS

It's sometimes a little ambiguous whether you're an admin user or not, so since we set it up several years ago if someone needs to take an admin action there's sometimes a little bit of a 'Were you the admin? Was I?' going on... but that's really it. It's a very, very consistent and reliable service.

Reason for choosing Trotto

Competitors just came off as VC-backed-ish orgs, and I heard rumors of them even sending cease-and-desists to open source alternatives and similar. It made me worry that (a) they might be under pressure to scale or return capital, which would put our internal tools at risk, or (b) they might try to raise costs on us a lot as they chased giant companies (a la Brex), which we wouldn't be able to afford as a startup. Trotto was open source, so I knew even if something happened we'd be able to bring up our own instance and offer continuity internally.

I couldn't live without this now

PROS

I love managing links for myself and my team with Trotto. I worked at google previously and it was almost mandatory to use goto links there so this has made my life so much easier

CONS

The ui could be a little nicer to use and sometimes i forget my links so some kind of autocomplete in my url bar would be great

Great for personal use

Great product overall at a fair price. Improvements would make it more convenient but doesn’t detract from current usability

PROS

Easy to set up redirects, with integrations with the browser.

CONS

Only 2 complaints: 1. Browsers would hijack the shortcut if I ever had similar search history to the shortcut 2. Signing me out is a pain to relogin especially if I need the link asap

Trotto is great for individuals!

PROS

I love that it does exactly what it advertises: it allows you to make shortcuts for URLs and edit them if you need to.

CONS

If it's the first time you use a shortcut you have to put a forward slash at the end (in Firefox) for it to work.

Reasons for switching to Trotto

I left the company I was working for that used it.

Gets the job done, yet never gets into the way

Lovely experience everyday, and that's how software ideally should be. It should never get into the flow of mind.

PROS

I use Trotto in individual capacity - both for my personal purpose as well as for my work projects. I can't emphasize how useful the tool is, and it "just works". It relieves a lot of mental bandwidth when I know that I wouldn't have to carefully mingle through hell lot of github.com URLs or not worry about forgetting a big enough site homepage. Trotto golinks are such a wonderful experience that I had even set them up once on Kiwi browser Android (it allows sideloading extensions).

CONS

Well, I wish Chrome brought extensions to mobile browsers soon, although there's nothing Trotto can do about it.

Reason for choosing Trotto

Trotto is a managed service, and that makes a ton of difference in terms of availability. Not only that, the contender software Tailscale golinks would work only when I'm connected to the tailnet, which all the while is inconvenient.

Accelerate any workflow with Trotto's go links.

Overall I've been incredibly pleased with Trotto and have recommended it many times to employers, coworkers, and other acquaintances. The simplicity just can't be beaten and it functions exactly as it promises without any distractions allowing you to get down to business and get to your numerous resources quickly and efficiently.

PROS

The easy of creating an account and setting up your first go links was a big draw for me. And it's easy to share your links with your coworkers as well as leveraged their tools as well. They also offer a free tier for small teams making it usable on personal devices with your own set of go links. Since using Trotto I've almost completed abandoned bookmark features in my browsers.

CONS

I wish that Trotto had support on mobile devices. Additionally I think that Trotto could benefit with an import/export for backing up Go link collections as well as bulk creation of links.

Can't work without it

PROS

I have so many internal links that i use daily and they all come from different platforms and different systems. I don't like the favorites in my browser but with Trotto i am able to get to that specific link without all the hassle. I just name the link whatever i want and i get redirected to the long link of the platform. Really useful

CONS

The internal dashboard on how to access and edit previous links could be a little better
