    Can I rename my form custom URL to make it shorter?

    Asked by menstrom on April 27, 2017 at 06:33 PM

    I discovered that I can have custom URLs, which made me very happy!  But when I first named my forms, I didn't realize that this was possible, and some of my form names are quite long, resulting in custom URLs that cut off the end of the form name awkwardly.  I tried to shorten the form names and recreate the custom URL, but it appears that once it is created, you're stuck with it.

    I'm just wondering if there is a way to shorten the custom URL name after the form has been initially created?

    An example is our "SFS Student Disbursement Release Form" which now has the awkward URL of:


    I would have used a shorter name, such as "SFS Student Disb Release" if I had realized this in advance.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    It should be possible to edit the custom URLs. However, the space symbols are not supported.

    You may try "SFS_Student_Disb_Release" or "SFS-Student-Disb-Release".

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
