URL shortener for Teams
When using the "get link" option in teams it would be better to have an embedded link shortener. Pasting the link in email looks terrible.
This item is still being reviewed by the feature team.
Please ad the feature! It would be so helpful.
Yes please to this. I'm pulling the links from Sharepoint sites instead at the moment to keep them sensible.

it would really help to make meeting urls significantly more user friendly. Seriously! Given it's security lapses, Zoom is no longer an option & Teams would be the perfect substitute.
August 2018... ****, my dog is younger than this review! :D
Yes please, the URLs that Teams generate are the least user friendly URLs I have ever seen. I don't think it's strange if users report these as a spam link. We want to keep it as simple as possible for users to see if a link is valid or not, with the URLs generated by Teams it's nearly impossible for a non-tech person to do this.

Please add this feature.
Totally agree. This looks stupid and takes a lot of unnecessary room in a short sharing message. Please make short URLs possible.

This is sorely needed!! Come on.. you are Microsoft.. you created Teams.. You can surely deliver a URL shortener quickly!
Example: This was the link that I got for a Live Meeting:
https://teams.microsoft.com/l/meetup-join/19%3ameeting_NDM4ZDdiOTM3LWJkZjktMTE1YjFiMDBlMzcw%40thread.v2/0?context=%7b%22Tid%22%3a%2f53b-4802-9d7b-201cd6376692%22%2c%22Oid%22%3a%22a3436a7b-0ba4-4f9f-e97c1921%22%2c%22IsBroadcastMeeting%22%3atrue%7d (Altered for example)
Status update, por favor.

In terms of making Teams user-friendly, having shorter file link URLs is needed!
Ian Caldwell commented
Yes please! either a MS hosted domain, or the option to use your own domain -

I'd like to be able to use conditional links in Excel to Teams documents, but at the moment I just get hit with the "text values in formulas are limited to 255 characters" error in excel.
Sensible length, semi readable, links to teams docs would be very much welcomed.

Please, when copy the link give us the URL not the text with the link embedded. We want to be able to past the link anywhere where it can be clickable.
Please update this!
Yes please!! current links are incredibly long and negatively affect conversations
Any update on this? ETA?
