When creating a link to a URL, for example in a Dashboard shortcut widget, please allow us to copy and paste from a valid hyperlink, even if that hyperlink is only in a cell in Smartsheet.

Use Case:

I create a hyperlink to the Form

1. Open Sheet.

2. Open Forms

3. Copy URL of desired Form

4. Open Sheet to contain the hyperlink

5. Right click cell - select Hyperlink

6. Paste URL

7. Add Display Text

8. Click OK

9. Open Dashboard

10. Click Edit

11. Click Add Shortcut

12. Paste URL again (if the clipboard was not used to Add Display Text)

13. Add Display Text

- since the Display Text is usually added via copy/paste too, there's another two steps in the there.

This could be quicker if we could copy / paste the hyperlink directly in the Add Shortcut dialog.

Copying Hyperlinks currently copy the URL and display text within the same browser, but only the display text when copying it out to another browser.
