SharePoint Url Shortener link when sharing document url
I have a document library where I place documents before I share the documents with others using a url. These urls can be very long.
it would be very useful to be able to have access to a shortened url when sharing a document as a link. e.g. http://sp.com/bYSywe
Thanks for sharing your idea. However, this is not something we would consider to provide in the near term.

This is not only an idea, but a real need to promote the the uptake for users when getting them to utilise links in documents. We know that an embeded link can go behind text, but users consider this as to much extra to do. The use of a Site Collection or Tenant based service or feature would make alot of sense to users and would benifit the communications teams & evangelists to pursuade those laggard users to use the systems more effectively!

so you want your users to go to a 3rd party shortener and share files instead of simply integrating this feature into sharepoint ?. How is this a customer centric decision?
Hello how are you?
I would suggest that when creating Sharepoint links (for file sharing), you make available the possibility that we shorten links (short links, preferably with a custom URL, eg go.jallesmachado.com/xyzabc); The links Sharepoint creates are very long, ungainly, and send to people via email is bad viewing.
Olá, como vai?
Gostaria de sugerir que ao criar links do Sharepoint (para compartilhamento de arquivos), vocês disponibilizassem a possibilidade de encurtarmos os links (short links, de preferência com uma URL personalizada, p. ex. go.jallesmachado.com/xyzabc); Os links que o Sharepoint cria são muito compridos e deselegantes, e ao enviar para pessoas por e-mail fica ruim a visualização.
