    Hi,

    I see that you are using the custom URL for you form. Unfortunately, the custom URL will always contain your username and we currently don't have a feature that will shorten URLs. The workarounds I can suggest are:

    1. shorten your username.

    2. use the API for Google's URL shortening service (https://developers.google.com/url-shortener/v1/getting_started#shorten)

    3. Use https://bitly.com/

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
