Hi @Antonio_Alves!

The sample you posted is also markdown syntax, using reference links (compared to inline links). Airtable supports both formats of links (reference & inline) when writing to the cell (either via the API / custom blocks / scripting), but always will use the reference-style format when reading cell values. There’s not currently any way to configure this behavior. You can read more about markdown syntax in Airtable here.
