Replacing URL Links in Direct Query

I am have created a calculated column with a hyperlink that takes you to the referenced page. Is there a way to replace this with the 'paperclip' icon or short text instead of viewing the entire hyperlink in my matrix table? I am connecting with direct query.

 

Thanks!

Re: Replacing URL Links in Direct Query

@KWelsh8144 ,

You are able to replace hyperlinks with the 'paperclip' icon in table visual following the steps below, but not in Matrix visual.

  • Select the chart to make it active.
  • Select the paint roller icon Paint roller icon to open the Formatting tab.
  • Expand Values, locate URL icon, and turn it to On.

Re: Replacing URL Links in Direct Query

@v-yuezhe-msft Is there anyway to convert this to something different in a matrix? A shorter text string, etc?
