To shorten the URL for Sharepoint, you can create a custom URL redirect using a URL shortening service or by using the built-in URL shortening feature in Sharepoint. Here are the steps to create a custom URL redirect in Sharepoint:

  1. Navigate to the page or document in Sharepoint that you want to shorten the URL for.
  2. Click on the three dots next to the item and select "Copy link" to copy the original URL.
  3. Go to the Site settings in Sharepoint and select "Site information" or "Site settings" depending on your version of Sharepoint.
  4. Under the Site information or Site settings, look for the "Site Collection" or "Site Collection Features" section.
  5. Find and activate the "URL Shortening" feature if it is not already enabled.
  6. Once the feature is enabled, go back to the page or document and click on the three dots again.
  7. Select "Copy shortened link" to generate a shortened URL for the item.
  8. You can now use this shortened URL to share the item with others.


Alternatively, you can use a third-party URL shortening service like Bitly or TinyURL to create a custom shortened URL for your Sharepoint page or document. Simply copy the original Sharepoint URL, paste it into the URL shortening service, and generate a shorter URL to use for sharing.
