hyperlinks in table

Hello,

 

Is there a way I can post hyperlinks in a database, and have them show up in a table and be clickable in powerbi?

 

Thanks,

Eric

Re: hyperlinks in table

The only hyperlink functionality that I'm aware of resides in the text box. Fields in the table or matrix are not selectable in any state, so it's hard to see at the moment how there would be any work around for this right now..

Re: hyperlinks in table

You just need to cast the data type for the URL in your data model - its super quick. 

  1. Navigate to the data model tab in Power BI Desktop
  2. Select the column that contains the URLs
  3. Under "Data Category" in the Modeling tab, select "Web URL"
 
After that, the URLs should show up blue and clickable in any table you place them in.

Nice! @Alex_J_Potter I didn't know this was here. Pinging @erickulcyk so he gets visibility on the answer.

Re: hyperlinks in table

Is it possible to make a hyperlink without showing the URL?

I mean here instead of "http://community.powerbi.com/t5/forums/replypage/board-id/power-bi-web-app/message-id/3638"

This is grayed out for SSAS Multidimensional.  Could super use this.

Yes, but is there a way to do like <a href="http://www.website.com">click here</a>. The problem with the hyperlinks is that they can be very, very long and we don't want to show the whole query. Thanks!

Did you ever get an answer this by any chance? I would also like to use hyperlinks but some of the URL's are 60 characters or more. Not great on a dashboard!

Thanks
