Add web links in Calculation field

markdown4.2

 

Podio Calculation field makes use of Markdown features, so we are free to use them.

As a result, we are free to add web links. There are two way to do so:

1) By writing down the URL. It then automatically it becomes a link.

Just copy paste the following code to a Calculation field:

@Text ? “https://www.google.com” : “”

You need to replace the @Text with any text field of your app. We just include a redundant @Text, in order to make Calculation field work.

 

2) Another way to create a link in Markdown, is to write text that contains a web link 

Markdown format for that is the following:

[ text ] ( webAddress )

Just copy paste the following code to a Calculation field:

@Text ? “[Google](https://www.google.com)” : “”
