Shorten URL

The Shorten URL feature can be used as an action or as a computed column to shorten a URL.

With this integration, you could turn a long YouTube Link like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqxP0DnJlBI into a short link like this mysite.com/special-name.

Below is a table with a description of the different settings. The most important settings to be aware of are:
