Change the format of a URL in design view

Is it possible to change the format of a url in the chart design page?

I have added the url through a text box in this screen but would like to change the way it is shown. Instead of the full web link i would like some text to be the link.


Is this possible?

Many thanks.

Hi Deannah,


Thanks for sending through your question.


Firstly, would you mind sending through your /info.jsp page so that I can understand which version of Yellowfin you are using.


Secondly, are you looking for the hyperlink to be a consistent text? Like 'link' or 'go here' or something similar? Or are you trying to make each row have an independent name, i.e. a search query using a particular URL?


Kind regards,

Simon

Hi Simon, thanks for getting back to me, you can see above our info.jsp page. I'm looking to make the hyperlink to be 'Go Here' not the entire url.


Thanks in advance.

Hi Deannah,


Thanks for clarifying that with me. What you are trying to achieve should be relatively simple by navigating to the Column Formatting options and changing the format of the column with your URLs to 'URL Hyperlink' and changing the text to 'Go Here' or something similar.


In the screenshots below I've change the Column Formatting for the Region to be URL Hyperlink and changed the text to 'link'. This will open a new tab with the URL underneath the text.


Let me know how you go!


Kind regards,

Simon

Thanks for the reply,i have actually added the url using the text widget screen. Its this small grey button. /eb31eda0806c03fab7839e3a2237ffdd

Hi Deannah,


I think I understand what you are trying to do. Apologies, I completely misunderstood your initial query!


To clarify, you are adding a Text Widget to a Report canvas with URL text and you wish for it to be formatted as a Hyperlink that says 'Go Here'?


If so, you are exactly right, if you highlight the text 'Go Here' and then insert the URL as a Hyperlink by clicking the link icon this should get the result you are looking for. I've attached a screenshot of how this might look.


Let me know if this is what you are after.


Kind regards,

Simon
