Hi

In firs table we store links from user form

In the second table we have cards and array by “link to other records” from first table

Problem is the second table is embedded on the website Countries analytic
Links inside cards are not clickable. For ex. click on the card “Russia” . How to fix it?

Welcome to the community, @KonstantinKharitonov!

It’s a very strange limitation or bug in Airtable, but you can’t make the links clickable in an embedded view if the URLs are the primary field in the linked table.

The workaround for this is to create the links in a different URL field in the linked table (not the primary field), and then back in your main table, you will need to create a lookup field to lookup this new URL field.

This lookup field will work the way you want it to work. It will have clickable links in it.

I would also recommend emailing support@airtable.com to ask them to improve this feature in the way that you were expecting it to work.
