Short URL link
Allow the user to create or auto generate a shortened URL link to send or post.
Having a human-readable URL is necessary, both for general trustworthiness as well as getting usage up compared to publicly available alternatives... we are working on getting everyone to embrace all the various parts of O365 in their daily work, but small details like this make it harder to convince...

we need to see a short link instead of this confusing one.

This needs to change. Right now a common harvesting vector is to create a 'form' that asks the user to 'login'. The user visits the link and it looks legit so they frequently input their credentials with obvious results...
Our users have been educated to look at email links closely - these forms links have nothing to identify that they are not legitimate. If we could have our custom domain in the link this would negate the scam as we could remove emails relating to MS Forms that do not have a correctly formatted link.
We need to be able to put a custom string in for the URL so we can block these fraudulent harvest attacks.

Give us the same options to limit one response per user and responder name for "Anyone"

We would love to see a shortened URL or maybe even a way to tie it to the O365 DNS records.
This seems to work, if you don't mind taking the time:

Yesssss That would be awesome a short url for my customers getting a Text message to fill out a survey
Minh Nguyen commented
Yes it would be great if you can make the link much shorter as google forms are much more convenient as you have choices to select to have a long or short link
Yes please - I need to create friendly urls. Not least because the full URL gives the little tykes far too much information about how our site is structure. The less I give them the better.
I see that this allows it to work from what ever document you are working from but if you copy and past back into an email the link seems to get lost...any suggestions

Copy the link. Use any document, edit the hyperlink change the Show screen text. Copy the link back to whereever

They tell you it cant be done but it can.....muppits. for email and sharepoint
Copy the link then paste it onto any document. Right click edit the link. Top of box "show text as" Change it. Then copy it back to where you need it.
YES YES YES YES YES PLZ....

This would be extremely helpful. When conducting trainings for teachers of various technology levels, this part of my training always confuses them.
It would be great if this was already incorporated to the link provided for us to share.

Could you get the short domain "for.ms"? Someone has it, I'm hoping it's Microsoft. You have aka.ms. Something like that where it's as easy to create and customize a short link as it is to create a QR code, would be great!

You can use a url shortening service, but even then I think it looks like spam (I don't click shortened links from someone I don't trust).
If Forms would use your subdomain and either shorter links or allow you to customize the link text it would be so much better for sharing.

Yes, please shorten the link. I need to send links via sms and work within 160 ch.
This would be SUPER HELPFUL. My first thought when I looked at the link was spam....
Voted up. This would be a great feature to add to make the forms links more trustworthy.
