Change Power Apps URL

Is it possible to change the long cryptic Power Apps URL to something more friendly?

I want something more readable than this:

https://web.powerapps.com/apps/18595ad0-c189-428c-9d3a-b522Ff9fa307

You could use a URL shortener or a redirect if you have your own domain, but I am not aware of any way to do this in the Power Apps settings.

Thanks for the reply. I thought this might be the case. I can setup a url and redirect it in my IIS server. I was hoping for an available  feature..... 🙂

@DaveHark 

I don't think that you can do that.

The answer provided in the thread below may help you understand why.

Thank you for the reply Julien. Much appreciated.

As suggested above, we ended up using a URL shortening service.

I think this should be a feature in Power Apps since the lengths of Power Apps is ridiculous.

We wanted to share the URL with over 340 users which makes the original URL impractical. It should be something a user could remember and type, not some "GUID like" name.

Thanks Dave for your feedback.

I had a quick look in our "Ideas" forum and could not find an equivalent of what you want.

Why not posting this idea?

Some popular ideas get reviewed and implemented. It may be worth a try.

Most url shorteners are reported as dangerous sites on browsers.
