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 implement at least a simple form of this. I'm always ashamed to send a link as long as 3 lines of text. It's even more embarrassing within Teams itself. Do you really want us to use bit.ly and the sorts? This is a no-go.
Another reason - you can't create links in Sharepoint HyperLink columns where the URL is >255 char.

Well, this is the One Microsoft Way. Add new features that nobody needs continuously, but ignore what the community is asking for - 600+ votes feature is still under review for a year.
Dear Warren, please do ask your future team to work on features that are actually in the past. Slack has been showing beautifully short links for like all of ever, without asking users to jump thru hoops like creating hyperlinks and so on. Moving from Slack to Team has been a design shock that I've still not gotten over :-)

@Warren, is it still under review?
It's been a year since the last comment and will be great to hear the latest.
I think allowing companies the option to integrate the shorturl API into the mix would be beneficial as well. When the tool provides a url it would be shortened based on the corporate short URL policies.
Why is it being reviewed? It should been implemented right away.
How is this still not a feature a year later??? Teams links are hideous and junk everything up!!! Please please please implement!!!
Any ideas on when this is on the roadmap to be implemented? Please.

Any progress? I tried send a link to a tester at my workplace and his response was there was no way he would click on a link that long.

Any progress on this please?

Can this happen soon? It's been under review for nearly a year. It's a URL, it's not rocket science.
Yes please, since people don't know how to create hyperlinked text for some reason SMH

Yes please !
When copying a link to a Teams file I would like to see the URL replaced with the file name not the path. Cntrl K is a workaround but not a productive way to work!
If you have to go through the url and hex-code each special character, that's cumbersome and error-prone!
I would love to see the MS Teams shortener URL. Current URL is way too long and will make perfect sense to shorten it.

I totally agree. RIght now I take the LONG link and shorten it via bit.ly EVERY time. Unshortened links are simply too unwieldy, even within TEAMS conversations
looks like notification of teams sent to email contains shortened url. any way to create it by user??
