    If you're sharing the URL via email or pasting it onto another doc, you can simply rename the long and ugly URL by through modification: Insert hyperlink>text to display.

    Hi Daniel and Beth! @Daniel, the way URLs are currently generated allows for a longer version only. That's an interesting idea though, and if you'd like, I can move this over to our Product Feedback section. @Beth, thanks for sharing this tip!

    I would love to have a shorter urls! We're moving away from Wufoo and using Wrike for most of our request forms (30+ forms), the length of the form is really annoying but it's also not informative. I adjust the link in email like Beth does, but we also utilize slack, and I want to be able to send a quick link and it's just ugly right now. Our current workaround is sending people to a company support page, with links to forms organized out by department and formatted as a hyperlink. It would be nice to have better organization directly in Wrike.

    Yes, please, a custom URL would be great. I am always apologizing for how long the links to our external forms are.

    @everyone!  I know this is a 3rd party solution, but you can use bit.ly to create a shortened link, at least until the Wrike engineers have a solution.  You can even make it a custom named link, for example bit.ly converts the long URL to bit.ly\h8g54s, you can change it to say bit.ly\AllMine, and use that for the link. Limits are: the free version of bit.ly does not let you change the URL once the tiny link is created, but Wrike will still send them to the correct form, and, if AllMine is already taken, you have to find something that is not.

    Totally agree with the request above.

    Even if it was possible to lock down first part and allow the company to customize the end of the URL
    Example HTTP://WRIKE.COM/COMPANYNAME/FORMS/[allow form naming] 

    This would be an excellent feature to an already great system.

    I also need this feature as well. I realize I can go to bitly and also realize I can embed the URL within the text in an email. But as someone else noted, we use Slack and other IM platforms and the URLs for the online forms is way too long. In addition, using bitly provides a short but non-descript URL so that's not really helpful. It would be great to have the option to create short URLs such as the ones Eddie Johnston suggests, one where our company name, forms, and the name of form shows.

    I am also in favor of a shorter URL, even better if we can customize it. I know how to insert a hyperlink in an email but it's not always possible, depending on the settings of the person you are replying to, for example.
