Add hyperlink to task form that links to current item?

Jump to solution

Hey folks!

Seems like a simple question, but, I can't for the life of me figure out how to get a hyperlink - on a form - to use an item property. We basically want a "click here" to open the item that the task is related to, but, nope. Can't use item properties to form a link apparently.

Anyone got a way around this?

Cheers,

Rhia

I usually use the following line of text in the Source of a Rich Text field: 

<a href="{Common:ContextItemUrl}" target="_blank">{Common:ContextItemDisplayName}</a>


As Shown:


What you'll see after you hit OK: 


What it looks like in the editor: 


What it looks like on the Task Form proper: 



For whatever reason the 'Insert Hyperlink' in that dialog has never worked and does nothing when I click it. This was a quick and dirty way around that though.

Hey N M‌ - it looks like you're in On Prem - not quite the same in O365!
Any reference text I try to add turns into this weird ... mush.

Never mind got it resolved. The URL need to be the full URL not a relative one when you construct and add them to a email or task body. Relative will still work on a formatted task form if you have a text box enabled to be rich text.
