URL shortener when sharing
when sharing links to documents, etc, the URL's are way too long.
Can you integrate something like bitly or another tool to make them less than the 208 characters that the last link I shared was.
The ideal place to offer this feature is when you are given the option to 'copy' the URL.
I am also waiting to see a response from this post: https://goo.gl/h6wTRt

*Update March 15, 2016: We’re working on a new approach to shortening the sharing links that will better enhance our users’ experience. Unfortunately, we had to remove the current experience in preparation for the new one. We always keep the best interest of our users in mind so we appreciate your patience as we work this out. We expect to have it ready soon.

This is one of the biggest areas of friction and user feedback for us at the moment as it’s so strikingly longer than other tools our team members are used to as well as a pet gripe of mine.
As an example, here are the three respective links for the same file
Dropbox (61 characters)-- https://www.dropbox.com/s/29ju8gx2w303pr2/test-image.png?dl=0
GSuite (82 characters)- https://drive.google.com/file/d/1U5O4R0F4anReDE7uFeG_mkf48jt0D0qO/view?usp=sharing
To echo what the latest commenters on that User Voice have said, there’s no way this can be considered a short link and the feature considered delivered. It’s 40% longer than GSuite and 127% longer than Dropbox.

Microsoft do you hear us?
Good god, there are so many things that are so much simpler and logical in GSuite we just migrated from. It's 2019 and the features like this are the absolute necessity.

Good god is this needed. I've just been sent this:
That's just an utter monstrosity. Its 2018, nobody wants to see URLs like that.
Build a URL shortener, make it http://o365.io/abc123 or something like that. Much more petite, much more pleasing on the eye.
Right now sharing URLs are just plain ugly.
Need this as well!

Yes please! Using Yammer for announcements and adding a URL to an item in SharePoint is embarrassing.

Please consider this. URLs are too long, this service would be very useful.
