Assign url to text on a column

Hello everyone, 

 

i'm working on a report where i have data about playlists; and in this data set , there is a column with links to the playlists like this

 

links.PNG

 

I would love it if someone can tell me how to make the user's experience better by not displaying the whole link but rather just a text that says "link" and when you click it, it takes you to the playlist 

 

Best, 

Nouha

Re: Assign url to text on a column

If you put this into a table, there is an option under the formatting pane called Values. In here turn on the URL icon switch.

You will not be able to enter your own text but it is a far neater option than having the whole URL.

Thank you, 

 

i was hoping to put the link in a card ; i didn't want to display the table ; but if there is no other way your solution is as close as it gets

@jatneerjatI'm not sure how to do it for a column, but I know with a text box you can set your own value for a URL.
