URL field in MDA

  • Implemented
Currently, when we pass a URL through a process in Gainsight such as Rules or MDA loads, the hyperlink itself gets stripped from the text, and we are left with just the text version of the hyperlink.

It would be great if we could have a way to pass URLs through our processes and maintain the clickabiity of the hyperlink itself.

Hi Tom, 

I haven't tested this myself, but does this behavior happen even when using the new URL data type? https://support.gainsight.com/Release_Notes/Current_Release_Notes/08Release_Notes_Version_5.15_June_...

Hi Dan,

I tried using the rules engine to populate a URL data type field in an MDA object and when I created a report for that object, the URLs were not clickable.

Reading through that link you sent, it looks like this is already a known limitation and on the roadmap. Looking forward to having this ability in the future!
