URLs in Survey Question


Userlevel 4

We’re sending an internal survey to account teams, and one of the requirements is a question that asks them if they are utilizing the auto-configured opportunity in SFDC, or did they create a new one. My issue is, while I’ve been able to create the URL, its not a hyperlink, and concatenating HTML tags around it does weird stuff, essentially breaking the field. I also tried having the field type URL in the MDA, however I guess URL fields are not allowed in Surveys? Any ideas on how to work around this?

It’s a full URL from Salesforce, for an opportunity. 

not sure if this helps but you *should* be able to do it. You just need a little bit of special sauce in your Concat function. Here is an example of one I did where I wanted the SFDC Case Number to be a clickable URL in my emails (not in the survey itself, but may be worth a shot):

Note this may be different if you don’t use lightening:

 

Concat(<a href=,
https://yoursfdcdomain.lightening.force.com/lightening/r/Case,
Object_ID_Field,
/view,
” target=”_blank”>,
Case_Number_Field,
</a>)


 

Each comma separated section is part of the concat formula and the spacing is important. The target=”_blank” forces the link to open in a new window/tab or Gainsight explodes and won’t open an otherwise functional link.

 

The returns are just for ease of reading. Note the /Case would be replaced with your object name, the _Field fields with what you’re referencing and the second one is your display text which could be static if you want.

If I could give you a virtual high 5 I would @bradleymcg - please accept this little motorcycle guy as a meaningful replacement! :motorcycle:

Hi @bradleymcg 

I am  using below URL to open new window in report or C360 layout but it does not work.

Can you plz advise?

Concat(<a href=",https://lightning.force.com/,Record ID, target="_blank", ”>,Link,<,/a>)

Hey @Syed , not sure if it will necessarily solve your problem but there are a few issues with what you typed out - try and match the format to what I posted above and see if that works for you.

 

Concat(

<a href=,

https://yoursfdcdomain.lightening.force.com/lightening/r/Case,

Object_ID_Field,

/view,

” target=”_blank”>,

Case_Number_Field,

</a>)

 

note that each comma represents a ‘field’ in the concat formula and the spacing matters. For example, you have <,/a> instead of ,</a>. Some of your quotes are in different places as well so have a look at those and see if the corrections help!
