Note:

Training Video: To view a short video explaining how to configure link shortening preferences, see Social 3.2 Link Shortening Enhancements.

Before a user can configure link shortening preferences, an admin user must have already added link shorteners to Social. Furthermore, the settings explained in this section are configured at the user level, other Social users are not affected by this user's action. Each user can enable or disable automatic link shortening and select a default shortener, as desired.
  1. Access the Publisher by clicking Publish > Publisher.
  2. Click Publisher Settings at the top right corner of the Publisher.

  3. Enable or disable automatic link shortening by sliding the Auto-Shortening toggle on or off.
  4. Select the link shortener that you want to set as the default shortener.

    All inline links will be automatically shortened using the default shortener.
