To shorten links for SharePoint, you can use the following methods:

  1. Use the built-in link shortening feature: SharePoint Online and SharePoint 2019 allow you to shorten links directly within the platform. When creating or editing a link, you can click the "Shorten" button, and SharePoint will generate a shorter URL for you.
  2. Use URL shortening services: If your SharePoint version doesn't have a built-in link shortening feature, you can use popular URL shortening services like Bitly, TinyURL, or Google URL Shortener. These services allow you to paste your SharePoint link and generate a shorter, more user-friendly URL.
  3. Create redirect pages: Another option is to create redirect pages within SharePoint. Instead of sharing the long SharePoint link directly, you can create a simple web page or site page that redirects users to the desired SharePoint page. By sharing the URL of the redirect page, you can effectively shorten the link.
  4. Use custom domain names: If you have a custom domain for your SharePoint site, you can create shorter links by utilizing subdomains or URL redirects. For example, instead of sharing "https://yourdomain.sharepoint.com/sites/siteName/Lists/ListName", you can create a subdomain like "https://lists.yourdomain.com" and point it to the SharePoint URL.


Remember to test the shortened links to ensure they work correctly and that they don't violate any security or permission settings within your SharePoint environment.
