Too often and especially with large complex installations, the structure of a SharePoint site collection, or Team Channel 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=%7b80
C76B49%2dFA92%2d490E%2dAFBF%2d8A07F9C73CCE%7d

When you use Short URL App, it can also be shortened to;
https://yoursite/clients (Ultimate License)

The Short URL App provides you with a choice of sensible, secure Domain names from which to create Short URLs. You are able to define which domain is used as the default within your SharePoint environment and each of these separate domains will also work for any ShortUrl created against the default instance. Thus, you can share any of the domains with your ShortUrl and they will work!
Short URL App Domains;
https://surl.link | https://surl.ms | https://officeurl.com | https://sharepointurl.com

A Short URL makes emailing the link, putting it into documents or even saying it over the phone much simpler and less error prone. Using SharePoint ShortUrl App a shortened hyperlink can be created to any Page, List Item, Document and View within SharePoint. Also to any external Url. With the Short URL App you can create Short URL’s directly from the SharePoint Site Actions Menu and/or any List/Library items Context Menu. If a Short URL has already been created, you can instantly copy to the clipboard, email the link directly (the link will be opened in your email client). Short URLs are stored in a regular SharePoint List (‘ShortUrl’) that is located in each Site that the Short URL App is installed. All Short URLs are processed on our Secure Servers, meaning we handle the resource load externally from Mircosoft 365. In Mircosoft Teams, Short URLs are created and managed via an intuitive chat bot.
