SharePoint URL Shortener Web Part

Virto URL Shortener Usage

When Virto URL Shortener is installed, you can start using it instantly without special adjustment.

Note: Virto URL Shortener is compatible to SharePoint 2010 only.

The component allows users to shorten URL to a SharePoint site page, document or SharePoint list item.

Go to required page and select “Virto URL Shortener” in the settings block.

A pop-up window will appear where the shortened URL is generated automatically. Copy URL to the clipboard and click “Close”.

The shortened URL will look as in this case. Use this URL as you need. For instance, send it via e-mail.

Or use URL in twitter where messages are initially set to 140-characters.

This way you can shorten links to SharePoint site pages, documents or list entries.
