[✔︎ DONE] Pls add URL field to field options in type definition

Hi,

A URL field in types is necessary for some use cases, when just a link to an external web resource or reference needs to be associated with an entity.

Current work-around is using rich-text field but it shows a large text box. The URL field could be just like the text box field, but with hyperlink for the entered URL.

Thanks!

webhook url do have bug did not work as it is texts

@mdubakov I was wondering what is the status of this request? It would be amazing if the URL field could also be dynamic and take data from other fields to generate new links. This would be very useful for linking to external systems through shared IDs. Obviously, this would require the URL pattern to be defined at the entity level and not be editable when adding new entities.

I was trying to accomplish this using action items, but wasn’t sure how to invoke a new window based on the URL (window.open() method) didn’t seem to work.

I was also thinking of using a formula for it (similar to the hyperlink formula in excel). But formulas at the moment just support numerical functions.

If there is a workaround, I would be thankful if someone could share.

Yesterday i was trying to use board card and table , but even after several hours i was not able to make what was done in task examples using by crating task in other app , example people task .
I tried failed one entity in one applications , can we duplicates use it other , but new instance , name changed get back to older
Thius duplication one one entity to use in other app , need better soolutions .Thanks alex well made observation , taske based meeting is key app fibery need to solve as an app meeting sheddules , diferente than time line .
The concept between data in table via form input , data designed in app , can not go just duplicate in other app is viw put the code need to be copied , remade .thus reusable concept become limited too he whit boar views can replace the view ,The views via whiteboard need to be top user voice , the big limitation to get better user products,This whit boar view need to be designed in such a way a user friendtly integrated story telling unified presentation made easy in fibery platform

This concept of hiperlinks , use one url to conect 2 entitity relaions was ade in one start up called fiedbook , vey simple way to conect 02 tables
As you mentioned in speard sheets , when you conect one column to other column via the line relation ships the two data tables get automatically conected via field linked all datas too being automaticaly was made poosible .
This way making relationships can avoid , may integrations of conecting via duplicartion
of the fields in entity .
how this was made possible , but very fast way to integatating several data entitity , but the start , failed because of the business model , as not able to compete airtable app

URL field is there
