A simple solution written in R and deployed as a Shiny application to make url shorteners for your organizations. The only thing to do is to create a Google Sheet and edit it as the provided example at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1DFNJmrY92HQb7hFM-7ONC0tVvu0nRIfP-jPodO_hxpc Edit app.R in order to point to the new Google Sheet by replacing this line: getURL( “https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1DFNJmrY92HQb7hFM-7ONC0tVvu0nRIfP-jPodO_hxpc/gviz/tq?tqx=out:csv&sheet=Shortener”, ssl.verifypeer = FALSE ) with the address of your Google Sheet (you should remove ssl.verifypeer=FALSE if your Shiny server allows secure connections).
