Please have a look at this  : when we share a report the users are expecting that the link can be clicked, because of the blue clickable hyperlink  and they are expecting that it would navigate to that particular company which is not the case.so we have a request from the user that the company names NOT be hyperlinked but rather be like a text format so that there will be no confusion and users do not think something is broken.

They could make a formula field and make a string from the Company name with no mapping and that will just be plain text (no link)

I think the workaround you give @john_apple is good, but it would be a nice OOB feature to be able to disable links that aren’t going to work on an externally exported report - or to a report to someone without the right GS license.

Hello @Mary Keerthi @john_apple @bradleymcg thank you for you for your post. Looping in the Product Manager to how best this suggestion could work.

@bradleymcg the thing here is that even a fully licensed user cannot click through on the link. It’s just dummy links. Very annoying!

Well that’s...not ideal. Sounds like there are bigger problems than just the link not working for external users. Really shouldn’t require making a whole new field to avoid a problem that should have not made it past beta testing...

@Mary Keerthi  - i agree this is very misleading to a user who sees the report, We will add this a the roadmap.
