Summary:  Browse to https://bitly.com/. Paste in the "gatech.edu" based URL or the Office 365 URL you wish to shorten. Click "Shorten". Your GT-branded shortened link will be displayed to you, and you should click on "Copy" to copy it to your clipboard.
 
Detailed Process:
  1. Browse to https://bitly.com/.
  2. Paste in the "gatech.edu" based URL or the Office 365 URL you wish to shorten.
  3. Click "Shorten".
  4. Your GT-branded shortened link will be displayed to you, and you should click on "Copy" to copy it to your clipboard.

This procedure can be used for any 'gatech.edu' based URL or any URL from Office 365 OneDrive or SharePoint Online.

You should record this shorten URL as you will not be able to retrieve it later from Bitly, but you can always create another one too!

You can use this process for non-GT websites as well, but you will not receive a GT-branded shortened URL.
