Microsoft Forms

Microsoft Forms now has a shorten URL option

Such a basic thing, but great to see. As per this Forms Uservoice suggestion, Microsoft Forms now has a ‘shorten URL’ option. It’s still rolling out right now (March 2021) but it turned up in my tenants. You’ll find it under the Share menu, and then under ‘Send and collect responses’ :

The tick box is called ‘Shorten URL’:

Before ticking this box, the Forms URL for sharing looks like this:

After ticking the box, it takes about a second or so to update, then looks like this:

The resulting link is of course, shorter. It also looks a lot nicer:

It’s nice to see a much more usable URL come out of Microsoft Forms, and still on the domain without having to resort to a third party URL shortener service.
