To use the new responsive designer, we really need the hyperlink-control to link internal and external documents in the form. We can't understand why a probably simple control like that (in relation to other controls) is not included yet. Can you please give us an idea when it's planned to implement/publish?
Thanks in advance!
We are wanting to complete the Hyperlink control, but it is dependant on some other work we are currently doing.
To give some background, SharePoint manages complex data in an unusual way. By that I mean the hyperlink stores the hyperlink title and the hyperlink as a string which, behind the scenes looks like "myhyperlink#;https://myhyperlink.com". So when we want to do formulas and rules, the data is not particularly helpful and requires more work. We are working on better ways to deal with this data and making our product easier to use.
I don't have a date, but it is certainly in our plan.
Would a hyperlink in a Text - Long (rich text) control help?
Why is there no option to type in a date ? The only way is to use a "non-intuitive way" of selecting year, month and day. Is this something that is considered ? Is there a work around ?
@riveranl Yes, ok I understand what you mean. But how do I the store the value in a date column ? I can only connect it to "single line of text" columns.
@nemegeerm1 Could you do it through a set value rule on submit? Don't attach the single line of text field to a column but have a hidden date field. Use a submit rule to set the value of the hidden date field to the value of the single line of text field. Alternatively you could have a workflow take the single line of text field value and write it to the date field.
Our preference is to use the date picker over typing in a date as the date has different formats which can be confusing for a user. We do not have any plans to allow typing in a date at this time.
