Every SharePoint user occasionally has to use URL to site pages, installed web parts and list items. The URL is usually too long, contains large amount of symbols and even takes sometimes 2 or 3 rows of text.
Now imagine that you need to spell this link during a telephone call. Or your partner asks you to send it by e-mail, where this URL takes most part of message body and any other information is left unobserved. At last you may need to twit this URL but will definitely face Tweeter character limit.
Virto URL Shortener Web Part for Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and 2013 automatically cuts large URLs by a single click to short links that can be used instantly by SharePoint users as for sending by e-mail, twitting, and even spelling by phone.
Moreover, the installation process is quick and simple. The component is ready to be used right after installation and doesn’t need special adjustment. Just download and install the web part and then use URL cutting button anytime you need.
