SharePoint List Hyperlink column

Jump to solution



We are currently in the process of using an external WebForm in order to submit data to a SharePoint list via SharePoint REST services. Since we are using an external form we want to have a URL formatted so that the Title input to the user is formatted as a hyperlink to open the external form and READ the SP Data.


The issue I am having is, SharePoint OOTB Hyperlink field has two values the URL and the Display text, when the external form sets the display text, I need the workflow to make an edit to the field and set the URL.


Instead - the workflow is setting the Display text and the URL with my environment variable: https:externalform.com. Causing SharePoint to display the the URL as https://externalform.com, does anyone have a fix around this?


When creating the SharePoint smartobject and reference K2 sees the SharePoint hyperlink column as straight text field instead of HYPERLINK.


Thank you!

Hi  jnewman


The raw text value stored in a SharePoint Hyperlink column is in the format "URL, DisplayText" i.e "https://www.google.com, Google"


In a workflow you can enter the Hyperlink Column property in the above format and specify the URL and display text manually.


I know there is also a Hyperlink Text Function in the Context browser, but I'm not sure if this generates the same output format that will be compatible with a SharePoint Hyperlink column.


Hope that helps.
