Can I Use A Shortened URL, Such As Tiny URL Or Bit.Ly, In The Add Site Dialog In Briefcase For iOS?

This article applies to:
7.x Briefcase for iOS

Shortened URLs will work in Briefcase for iOS but when you are creating one, you must amend the browser URL in order for it to authenticate properly.

For example, if you enter the following URL in the Add Site dialog: http://sitename.corporate.local/subsite/SitePages/Home.aspx, Briefcase is able to detect the root of the site for authentication. However, if you turn this URL into a shortened one, Briefcase is no longer able to detect the root and authentication will fail. Therefore if you want to create a shortened URL, you must amend the original URL to read as follows: http://sitename.corporate.local/subsite/
