Flexibility. Adaptability. Adoption of new technologies and workflows. These are some of the things she taught us in 2020. It therefore seems appropriate that the latest features released by Bitly in 2021 focus on Bitly working anywhere and in any way.
We want you to have the ability to shorten and brand wherever you want to work. Whether it works in the Bitly app, in the mobile app, spreadsheets that you can import into Bitly, or truncate directly in other apps like social networking platforms (Sprout Social, Sprinklr, etc.) or Chrome, WordPress, Salesforce, or hundreds of others application.
Let’s look at some of the different ways you can save time and be more productive by shortening, stamping, sharing, and tracking your connections from different places and the way you work.
Gather your connections
The new CSV bulk truncation the feature allows you to shorten and brand links from a spreadsheet at once. This means you can continue to organize links in spreadsheets and eliminate tedious copying and pasting back and forth from spreadsheets to Bitly and back to spreadsheets. With the new bulk CSV truncation feature, you can shorten up to 10,000 connections (depending on the plan), saving you time, reducing errors, and shortening links in scale.
Shorten connections with integrations
We know you have a whole arsenal of tools to work with. From social media management platforms, through CRM, through website and blog developers, to communication platforms and so on. It can be boring to work in an app and have to jump into Bitly shorten the connection then copy and paste it back. With Bitly’s API, you can integrate with thousands of other tools so you never have to leave the app you’re working on and you can stay focused on the task at hand.
Our new WordPress plugin allows you to shorten and brand links every time you post a page or post to your WordPress page (and we even support custom domains!). With the addition of this short link will be created through your Bitly account. This means you can keep links and click metrics in one place, making it easy to track the success of your efforts.

Shorten links using Bitly’s Chrome extension
To make your workflow as simple as possible, use the Bitly extension in your browser. This means you will never have to leave the page you are working on to shorten or split the link. In fact, you won’t even have to log in to your Bitly account.
To work through a browser extension, all you have to do is click the Bitly button on the toolbar or right-click the page to quickly create a short link from the current URL you are working on. From there, the link is automatically copied to your clipboard where it will be ready to paste into a post, message, or other document. You can now also generate a QR code for the current page.
