Display image over a URL in column

Hi,

I have a dashboard that is pulling data from our database and it populates into a table, I have created a custom column that takes some of the data and creates a URL to post into another system with the selected row.

Instead of the URL being displayed to the end users I would and image to be shown and when they click the image they are taken to the URL.

Is this possible?

 

Thanks

 

Andy

Enable the "URL Icon" under Format->Values

 

Unfortunately, It comes with a default image.

 

 

I hope this helps. If it does, please Mark as a solution.
I also appreciate Kudos.

Re: Display image over a URL in column

this tag does not change the weblink to an icon.

 

for me the weblink work e.g you can click on it, but is shows the full path even if url icon is "on"image.png
