    Is there an app or a way to generate a tinier URL? We'd like to trim it down and can use tinyurl, but we were hoping to still maintain our domain in that teeny tiny URL.

    Hi Andrea!

    We do have an app in the App Marketplace called URL Builder, but I'm not super familiar with the way it works so I'm not sure if it'll do what you need it to. It might be worth checking out, though.

    I also some digging online and found a service called Rebrandly that's a customer URL shortener. I'm afraid it doesn't have an integration with Zendesk, but it looks like it could fit the bill!

    Hi Dennis! Welcome to the Community!

    You can definitely change the URL of your Help Center with host mapping. We have a great article about how to set this up, which you can find here!

    Some SEO recommendations I am being asked to explore for our external help center is to have a title "slug" in the category URL.  It appears that both articles and sections have slugs but categories do not.  Is this something we can control and enable for our help center?

    We recently changed the names of our products, and as such changed the tittles of our helpsite documents. But the link still contains the name of the old product. Is there a way to correct this? This is the article, but we likely have others

    Now the tittle is User Guide for Planner 2018
