Button to link to Google Maps

Did you mean: 

I am trying to create a button to link to a client’s address and am getting a “about:blank#blocked” url when I click on it.

What am I missing?

The URL Formula I am using is:

ENCODE_URL_COM (“”& {address})

Or is there a better way to accomplish this - it needs to be able to be clicked from the app on a mobile phone.

"" & ENCODE_URL_COMPONENT({address})

Thank you, that worked this time. Now, can it work with a field that is a formula because I really want to use it with a Concatenated string that is referenced from another table. And when I try to use that field it won’t work.

That’s not very specific, doesn’t work how?

You mention the other field being both a formula and referenced from another table. Do you mean a Lookup field that is pulling from a Formula?

If its a Lookup field then do {Field Name} & "" to force the array to be a string.

Sorry for the delay. The “Open URL” is light blue and doesn’t link to anything:


Well your address is in fact a Lookup based on your screenshot. Did you add the &"" to the end of the field name as suggested?

"" & ENCODE_URL_COMPONENT({Address for Maps (fr...)} & "")

I ended up doing a CONCATENATE formula from 2 fields that were linked from another table and used that as the address for maps - it worked.
