It would be nice to be able to set the displayed Title of a URL type field (or a Formula with URL type). This is currently supported in Rich Text links (and everywhere else on the internet), but not URL type fields.
Also needed is a new Formula function to set both the Title and URL to be returned from from a URL-type Formula field.
This a major pain point for me especially in trying to integrate/link fibery to other systems. In most situations, the URL are really long and ugly, so while this seems insignificant, it feels like a big quality of life improvement.
This thread has some great ideas and precedent examples:
This request is basically the same idea as you’ve expressed here (I was inspired by Excel’s HYPERLINK formula function):
I had a fairly similar idea to you in terms of implementation (at least for formula based URLs):
I’m sorry for keep bumping the topics around the URL/hyperlink fields. I keep running into this issue and every time it reminds me to try and see if there any possibility something like this might be in the pipeline.
I tried to create a new Links database with a formula field to display a clickable link with Name and URL combined, but did not succeed yet, since the formula URL type field apparently cannot construct such link, it assumes the value is merely a URL.
