Please Add Hyperlink Formula


#1

Google Sheets has a formula called Hyperlink.
HYPERLINK(url, [link_label])
Example
HYPERLINK(“http://www.google.com/”, “Google”)
Where url is The full URL of the link location enclosed in quotation marks, or a reference to a cell containing such a URL.

and link_label - [optional] is the text to display in the cell as the link, enclosed in quotation marks, or a reference to a cell containing such a label.

It would be helpful if airtable could do this too.
My use case: Zapier finds new google docs in a special folder and adds records to an airtable which includes TITLE and URL. I have a view of that table that is embedded on my internal google site so that all new content in that folder (medical protocols) are available to my staff. It would be quite nice to have one field (a clickable link) rather than two - the title and an ugly url.

Please like this post to help it raise to the top!


URL--Text to Display Feature

+50 to this. I can’t move most of my GSheets to AirTable until this is supported. Three main reasons:

  1. Having a string placeholder for a URL is simply easier to understand and friendly to look at
  2. It makes collaboration easier, as people don’t need to recognise a URL, they simply see this is an “Article” url, or “Doc” url.
  3. Right now without hyperlink, you can’t import URLs from GSheets as it loses all the links you’ve added

I can’t wait for this to be added, it’s really the last missing piece for me to switch to AirTables extensively.
