Deep Links Not Opening Project All The Time

We have started implementing deep links (eg: ccam://projects/12345678) in our Jobber notes to let our crews jump directly to that project in the CompanyCam app on their Android phones.

Initially this seemed to work, however we are discovering that there are times when the link simply takes the user to the CompanyCam app main screen, but not directly in to the project.

We are using Zapier to pre-create the projects when a Request is created in Jobber, so the links are always valid.

It appears that is CompanyCam is closed and the link is tapped, it works fine. If CompanyCam is already open, that's when we seem to have issues.

PowerApps have this issue as well, and it is apparently a result of the way Android handles open apps. They implemented a URL modifier to force the app to restart.

Has anyone else encountered this with CompanyCam?
