Allows users to create and use short links in a SharePoint environment instead of long and unattractive ones. Short URLs can be created for site pages, documents, views and list items.

Why You Need It?

http://companyname.com/Partners/custom%20category/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2fproducts%2custom%20category%2fShared%20Documents%2fPartners%20Overview&FolderCTID=&View=%8b90C87B40%3dFA02%2d590E%2dAFBF%2d9A18F0C84CCE%8d

One of the great selling points of SharePoint for an organisation is the ability to keep documents and information centrally and the supporting mechanism for this is to send hyperlinks to colleagues and clients. By having a cleaner way to manage lengthy hyperlinks, you will gain a very significant productivity improvement with hardly any effort or expense.

Before attempting to deploy the solution, please make sure your account is a Farm Administrator and your account has db_owner rights on the Admin content database. This is a generic requirement for being able to deploy solutions in SharePoint and is not specific to our solution.

The software may not work on any new servers that have been added to the SharePoint farm after the initial deployment of our solution. Although SharePoint deploys any installed solutions to any new web server added to the SharePoint Farm, it doesn’t have the ability to trigger certain parts of the installation process. When encountering problems please execute the following command on every new SharePoint server that is added to the farm: stsadm -o copyappbincontent Note that STSADM is located in %CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN
