Automation- Hyper links


Hey Everyone,

Is there a way to cleanly add a URL in my auto alert messages. For example:

Instead of writing:

"For further information visit the FAQ page :

I'd love to write:

"For further information visit the FAQ page where FAQ Page has a link embedded to it.

Thank you.

    Hello @BIP,

    Yes, you can get a URL to appear in your automated messages.

    • Make a column specifically for the URL.
    • If you embed the link (i.e., FAQ PAGE) it will not be a URL in the message but it will be a URL in the field display (see below).
    • If you keep the link a literal link (i.e.,

    Here is the very simple Sheet I set up (clicking Send triggers the automation) with a side by side of how the two notifications manifest.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Dan,

    Thank you for replying to my question.

    I'm trying to alert someone by automating it. I have to include a couple of paragraphs in the customise message section. I was wondering If it was possible to include the embedded link while sending out the customised message? For instance, I have included " For more information visit the FAQ page" can the link to the FAQ page be embedded in the text itself? I'm selecting the message only option as I don't want them to have access to the sheet.
