Hyperlink to data values

Asteroid

Hi

Want to know if there is any way to add hyperlink to data values in the Alteryx output as shown below on product category column. I would like to format the Product category field to be a hyperlink; when a user press the hyperlink it will go to a particular URL. Please provide your suggestions.Alteryx hyperlink.JPG

Try using the reporting text tool.

You can create a hyperlink with it.

Assume you have country column in your report and you want to show Hyperlink on Country name data values but underlying link will navigate users to Wikipedia

United States  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States)

United Kingdom (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom)

Hi Mark

 

As discussed, it seems Alteryx replacing % in the hyperlink with %25 which causing issue with using report text tool. also again using replace function not helping either. Please confirm if any workaround.

Hi - has this bug been fixed yet? I have similar problems of the tool adding '25' to the hyperlink, hence causing it to fail.

 

Thanks

Lucy
