How to Shorten a URL

Our URL shortener is built into the system, so there is no special setup required! All you have to do is:

  1. Type in the entire URL in any message. It can be alone, or part of a larger message. Gloo automatically detects the link, so simply click the shorten URL button (the one that looks like a chainlink) and a new, shorter link will be generated.

  2. The URL will be shortened in your message, and you will also get a green pop up notification to let you know the shortener did its job.
