URL Shortening Screen


Overview

URL shortening is a method of taking a normally long URL, and making it substantially shorter in order for it to fit easily into your SMS message. This is extremely useful, as long URLs are often difficult to read or copy. URL shortening also allows for full tracking, giving the sender a wide array of analytics at their disposal.




Simply click on "URL Shorteners" on the left-hand control panel menu, and follow these easy steps:

Step 1: Creating

Click on "+ Create URL Shortener" at the top right of your screen and complete the required fields.

Step 2: Save

Click on "Create" to save your new URL shortener.
