From 2019.2 version of Alteryx Connect, there is a new functionality of adding custom fields. However, right now, it is only possible to add plain text (text type) in there.
Would it be possible to add there also URLs (hyperlinks)? We want to add new custom fields with hyperlinks pointing to other Connect pages.

Thanks a lot
Thank you for your post!
Our product team has reviewed this idea and would like to include it into a future release of the product. Please note this can take some time, however we'll be sure to update this idea again once we are closer to the release of this feature.
Hi, I'm putting this into the Coming Soon stage and it should be part of an upcoming release.
Thanks for suggesting this idea! We have implemented the ability to add URLs to custom fields in the 2020.4 release of Connect which is available for download here: http://downloads.alteryx.com/
