Add Http:// to a link address if its missing?

Hi everyone,

 

I have URLs that start with stssyn:// which is not compatible with power bi to show this as a hyperlink. Example:

Is there a way to force these links that don't have https to add the http:// in at the start so power bi recognises them as valid links? 

 

Regards,

 

Matthew

@Matthew77 ,
Your URLs must start with all the below prefix in order to work in PBI. This is the screen shot from Microsoft doc and I am attaching SS and link for your reference.

OR Try to deploy your URL's or it's contents to this mentioned Prefix websites. (if possible)

Hi @Matthew77 ,

 

You may try to use "Replace values" in Power Query:
