Use static URLs to folders, regardless renaming the folder
At the moment if you change the name of a folder any URL you have shared with a colleague breaks - as the URL is make up of explicit folder names. Instead we should use ids in the URL (like you already do for documents/files), which stay the same regardless of re-naming. This would also mean that if a user MOVES a folder we can still link to it.
Rather than: .../Shared Documents/My First Folder/My Second Folder/My Third Folder
We would expect to see something like: .../12345
This ID would exist within a tree, and would therefore not need all the prefixing folder names, as these could/would all be deduced.

My company uses this as journalists, so we have to deal with many folders and documents and often move and reorganize them throughout a project. Having a persistent URL for folders as the default would reduce a lot of friction in how we use SharePoint.

This is exactly what I NEED for my company´s solution. The folder structure we need to use is given by someone else and is too deep for the URL. Is there any simple way to do this? Has Nintex any functionality like this?
