SharePoint URL Shortener
A few years ago I developed a free SharePoint URL Shortener and released it to the community. I have not had much time to go back to it since. I had some time recently and decided to add a feature that I have wanted to have for a long time and many have asked for.
With the release of 1.0.2, you can now customize the short name before it gets created. If you do not specify a name then one will be generated for you.
The following screenshots show the process:
If you decide not to customize the name, you simply click “Ok” and one is generated for you:
You can download this solution from my CodePlex site at http://spurlshortener.codeplex.com.
Future plans for this solution include:
- Removing the dependency on Central Admin
- Allowing users to update shortened URLs
- Provide a list of shortened URLs assigned to an item
SharePoint URL Shortener 1.0.3 was released that added initial SharePoint 2010 support.
