Remember the first agreement. . . Be Nice

So, I'm an administrator and I have some new sales guy asking me to put "redirects" into a Word document. He's hyperlinked a bunch of content to websites and I'm pretty confident he's using the word "redirect" incorrectly. Aren't redirects the responsiblity of the browser? More along the lines of "this page doesn't apply anymore, I'm taking you over here?" All the current links are fine in the word doc. What do you think? (Besides the fact that I probably shouldnt' be posting here?)

Thanks. -J

I certainly would ask the sales guy to explain what he wants to accomplish.

Redirects are created in a response by a service that you reach by an ordinary request generated by a URL..

A document link just lets you reach the service in the first place.

Your post is entirely appropriate, and you are most welcome to the Ranch.
