In this article we will show you how to use a URL shortener to create short URLs. In this previous article we outlined the steps to Create a Survey URL. The URL that was created is really long and not something you would want to include in a text, chat, community or social media post. The solution is to use a URL shortener.
For this exercise we choose to use Bitly but there are other URL shorteners on the market you can decide to choose.
Manually create a short URL
Now you have a short URL that can be sent through any distribution channel you choose.
Want to Automate the Process?
Use the Bitly API to send a long URL and get back a short URL that you can save to a custom field and / or automate sending to various distribution channels. Be sure to check the rate limits for your free or paid plan.
