How to shorten a URL and insert a short link on the smsmode© platform?
smsmode© has set up an automatic reduction of all your links, whatever the solution used (online platform, API, Mail2SMS...). When you integrate a link into your message, you only need to count 12 characters (the length of a short link, smsmode©) in place of the original link. If you do not wish to personalise your short link, you can go directly to step 2: use and follow-up of short links.

By default, it expires after one month.
6️⃣ Confirm the creation of this short link by clicking on "Add".
1️⃣ Copy and paste your generated short link into your message.
This short link of 12 characters can be used whatever solution you use (SMS editor of your email or others)

Please note: the number of clicks updates in real time but only when refreshing the page 5️⃣.
3️⃣ Find a short link from the list by searching by keyword.
