    URL shortner for links in the form

    Asked by oscarrsm on March 07, 2017 at 11:46 AM

    Hi Guys,

    I have a question. We have a form that is generating automatically an URL with some parameters. 

    We like to short this URL that is very long, and right now our users are invited to use GOOGLE SHORTNER.

    Is there any way to do it automatically ? 

    So if we have a CALCULATED FIELD with inside an URL, is possible to have a SHORTNER VERSION maybe by link an external service that you can suggest us?

    To my understanding, your form is generating a long URL and you want it to automatically convert it to a shorter URL. Unfortunately, that is not possible here in JotForm. However, you can check and read this link to shorten any long URL. Here's the link: https://tinyurl.com/.

    Hope that helps. If you have questions or need further assistance, feel free to contact us again. We'll be happy to assist you. 

    Thank you.
