Just wondering if anyone knows is there a way to change the format of the way documents are shared from SharePoint to external users.

It works great by sending the guest hyperlink etc. but is there a way to format that hyperlink to make it look less messy (its a very long link) or even a way to replace the hyperlink with a logo/symbol etc.

Any help on this would be great.

Thanks Ryan


The cleanest link you can get for a document can be found when you open the Ellipsis (...) on the document or folder as the URL found in the dialog box formats the direct path to the document. (https://<server>/<site>/<library>/<folder>/<filename>)

Teach your users to open and use this link when copying and pasting a direct link to a file/folder. Remember you need to be outside a folder to get the link to it. ;-)
