How to turn table column values into links given by another measure

Hello, let's say hypothetically that I have two measures in Power BI that can be put into a table like this:

(I'm using excel to illustrate, but imagine that this is a table in PBI)

 

Instead of having a separate collumn for the links, I want to turn the "Name" collumn values into links to their profiles, while keeping the original name string:

Is this possible?

Hi @EspenSales ,

 

I don't think there is currently a way to do this. However, you can also vote on the idea to have it become part of the Power BI. 

You can refer to this document if you want to create URL in the Power BI Desktop:

Thank you for your reply, I have voted on the poll and hopefully we'll see this become a feature in PBI.
