Help with Tiny Url

Hi Guys,

Need to create a short url and was trying out Tiny URL. I have tried this so far but the short link is not displaying.

CONCATENATE("http://tinyurl.com/api-create.php?url=",[preurl])

This is how it is displaying:

http://tinyurl.com/api-create.php?url=https://www.appsheet.com/start/88888888-9999-AAAA-BBB-22277777777e?refresh=1&wipe=1#control=APP&defaults={"TEXT"%3A"CO-14743"%2C"TEST"%3A"Y"}

when you click on the link it opens page with the Tiny URL:
https://tinyurl.com/y222tv333

I m not sure how Tiny URL is going to work, but it looks like

Is your API call to Tiny URL server with the various required params. Then you will get the API response and it bodies carries the “tiny” url as a result.

Appsheet is no way to display and present the response body of API calls (for now).

possible work around is you hide all the URL but present your prefered texts, using HYPERLINK() expression.
