Create ShortUrl's for any SharePoint Page, List Item, Document, View or External link. SharePoint ShortUrl is a SharePoint solution that allows the creation and use of shortcut hyperlinks, fully integrated within the SharePoint environment. It’s common, especially with large complex installations, the structure of a SharePoint site collection can lead to enormously long hyperlinks, which makes for ugly and error prone hyperlinks. For example, compare the following hyperlink to a folder in a document library: https://yoursite/clients/abc%20company/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2fclients%2fabc%20company%2fShared%20Documents%2fClient%20Requirements&FolderCTID=&View=%7b80C76B49%2dFA92%2d490E%2dAFBF%2d8A07F9C73CCE%7d. When you use SharePoint ShortUrl, it can also be shortened to: https://yoursite/clients. This makes emailing the link, putting it into documents or even saying it over the phone much simpler and less error prone.
