Formula: Hyperlink() and HyperlinkCard()
Category: Shape
link.svg
Hyperlink()
Creates a link to a website
or stated otherwise...

HyperlinkCard()
Creates a card that serves as a link to a website
or stated otherwise...
Hey Coda, take this website url and put it in my doc as [this] text.
Hyperlink() and HyperlinkCard() share one parameter:
domain (1).svg
URL

HyperlinkCard(URL)

The URL of the website to link to.

Hyperlink() has one additional parameter:
exposure-value (12).svg
DisplayValue

Hyperlink(URL, DisplayValue)

What value you want to "hide" your URL beneath.


Both Hyperlink() and HyperlinkCard() have a fairly shallow, short learning curve. This is partially because most people who have linked websites in emails intuitively know how these formulas work. The whole goal of these formulas is to provide more aesthetically pleasing ways to display website links. I mean, which do you prefer?
Note: When writing out the URL parameter in either formula, make sure that you enclose it in quotation marks. You’ll want to do the same for the DisplayValue parameter when using Hyperlink().
Also note: There are a couple ways you can generate hyperlinks in a canvas— you can use the formulas listed above or create one as you would a table, by using the “/” command and typing “hyperlink”.

When Creating Links To Other Pages Within Your Document

It can be tempting to link to other pages in your doc by copying and pasting those pages URL into your formula. When using the “/” command, select “Link” and input the page name within the “link” field, like so:

From there you can choose to keep it a hyperlink or turn it into a card.
