Need to create hyperlink in power bi, i have a unique record id but need to add the URL

All,

 

I would like to add hyperlink to a report and dashboard.  Unfortunately my data set only has the record id and not the complete url.  How should I go about adding the starting portion of the URL to the record id in the data set?

hi @leroy773

 

Create a calculated column to concatenate "Sales force URL" and your ID column

 

Change Data Category to WebURL

Hi @Vvelarde, I have another question. If I only want to show ID in that field but it actually includes the url, for example when I click ID 001 it will go to http://salesforce.com/001. Thank you.
