Is there any way to display the Button field only if the URL field it references has data? So if {resource link} is null, don't display anything. We have some users who are confused when the button doesn't work (not all the records will have a resource link). These are views which are shared publicly and not Airtable users. Thanks!

No, but the button field dims if there is no URL. 

I wonder if you could create a formula field that says “Active/Inactive” and show that field in the view with the button to train the users on what an active button looks like as opposed to an inactive button? And of course make sure that you’re not inadvertently using buttons that look like an inactive button elsewhere, which sometimes happens when there are lots of different colored buttons scattered around. 

Great point that @pressGO_design made above. Choose the darkest colored buttons that you can find, so it's much more obvious when they are dimmed & inactive. And another great idea about the formula field. 

Another option would be to use a formula field to create a rickroll link for everything that doesn’t have a URL resource. 😂😂😂😂

LOL!!! 😂🤣
