About SharePoint ShortUrl

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.

Using SharePoint ShortUrl a shortened hyperlink can be created for any Page, List Item, Document and View within SharePoint. Also to any external URL - including FTP and Mailto. With SharePoint ShortUrl you can create ShortUrl’s directly from the Site Actions Menu and/or any List/Library items Context Menu. If a ShortUrl has already been created, you can instantly copy to the clipboard, email the link directly (the link will be opened in your email client) and edit the shortened hyperlink. All the ShortUrl’s are stored in a regular SharePoint List which allows for all of the standard List functionality of audit trails, workflow, security permissions and item approval.
