Link to specific record in sms not working, truncated?

Is it because it is being truncated when sent?

Becomes https://www.appsheet.com/start/922dbed2-5196-4caa-9581-401fc815a472#appName=Requests-1778436&page=detail&row=a28acbb6&table=Pri_Req_Visible_User&view=Pri_Req_Vi

If so, how can I fix it. I already shortened my table and view names, a lot. Can I do something for the 922dbed2-5196-4caa-9581-401fc815a472

Thanks.

I would think this is all you need:

I’m not aware of a way to shorten the part before the # character.

Thanks Steve,
I used Tiny URL to shorten the first part and it worked.

I tried yours but it didn’t work.

I tried modifying yours but that didn’t work either. Do you know of any reason why using a Tiny URL is a bad idea?

Should be fine.

Please bear in mind that SMS content shall not exceed 160 chars. Punctuations and non-Latin chars will be counted as 2 chars. So you shall be controlling that.

Thanks. I’m so spoiled by modern phones not having that limit but I did run into it. I wonder if I can include anything else in the Tiny Url?
