Create short URLs with Google Docs

You may have the need to convert regular web addresses into shorter URLs within your docs automatically.
Get ready,  it’s fairly simple to setup and way easier than you think.

Log into Google Docs, create a new document or open an existing one and use the following formula for shortening:


Copy the formula and paste it into the fields you want to use.

You need to change the field “A2” to the corresponding long URL field. After entering the long URL in the chosen field, the magic happens and the formula creates a short URL.

Your done. Easy does it.


Let us know if you’re having trouble setting this up.
