Get Started: Choose a Trip Short Name

What is a Trip Short Name? How to decide on one. Where does it show? And when shouldn't you change it? Read on for more info!

What is the Trip Short Name?

  • Your TRIP SHORT NAME is used in all of the branded links you and your team share from your account. 
  • It is used in any links you share for your TRIP PAGES (i.e. PUBLIC TRIP LINK, MAGIC LINK, etc.), so you'll want to ensure it represents your TRIP well.
  • It cannot contain spaces or special characters (but you can add a dash as a space between words!)


How do I decide my Trip Short Name?

  • The easiest thing to do is leave it be! Fortunately, whatever you decide your TRIP NAME to be will automatically be added as your TRIP SHORT NAME.
    • For example, if your TRIP NAME is "Creative Croatia" your TRIP SHORT NAME will default to "creative-in-croatia"
  • If you decide you want to change the default TRIP SHORT NAME before sharing your TRIP with people (see the warning below, this is very important!), you can change it.
    • For example, if your TRIP SHORT NAME is "creative-in-croatia" and you want to change it to "creativity-in-croatia" and your Business Alias is "evolve-travel-community" then your TRIP's URL will be: https://youli.io/t/evolve-travel-community/creativity-in-croatia
    • This example is a change in wording, but you may decide to change your TRIP SHORT NAME to add a month or year into an annual trip (like "creativity-in-croatia-2024")

NOTE: If you have White Label Domain setup, your URL will not have youli.io in it, since you have masked your domain.🤠


⚠️ Warning! ⚠️

If you have already done any of the following actions, changing your Trip Short Name will break these links

  • Sent messages/invites from your TRIP
  • Shared MAGIC LINKS
  • Or posted the PUBLIC TRIP LINK
  • Embedded your TRIP into your website

WARNING: This means if you have live clients already or have shared your Trip, do not change your Trip Short Name.

If you're still building your Trip and have not shared the Trip in any capacity

No problems here! You may adjust your TRIP SHORT NAME with no repercussions.😊


How to set up the Trip Short Name for your group itineraries

1. From your TRIP MENU click on your UPDATE TRIP > OVERVIEW

2. Edit the text within the TRIP SHORT NAME field



TIP: See below, when you change your Trip Short Name, the URL preview will automatically change, so you can see what your URL will look like with any changes.
