I am looking to see how I can insert a Hyperlink into a Request Update notification, Please find the attached screenshot.
Any link can be pasted into the message but I don't know that you can hyperlink a word for example.
Do you want a specific hyperlink for each update request?
Have a fantastic day!

Yes Andree the same hyperlink will be used in every request
Do you want the update request to sent automatically when something specific happens?
@Andrée, just thinking... If you were 'attach' a link, using the option I have outlined below, then you would be able to have a unique hyperlink per row and trigger the update requests with a workflow?
If possible that will be great Andree
It's possible with an automation workflow.
What would trigger the update?
Yes, that's correct! You could also include the link on the row in a cell and include that as a placeholder in the update request message.
The formatting only seems to work with a hyperlink if it's not masked. Is that accurate?
I have a hidden column that I use for a URL with display text. When I use the placeholders in the automation, it displays the text but not as a hyperlink.
I can only get it to show as a hyperlink if the complete URL is shown in the cell.
The quickest way i can think of getting around that is to 'attach' a hyperlink to the row and ensure you are displaying attachments in the automation. This way you will get a Hyperlink and be able to change the display name to whatever you want to.
Not sure if that helps?
Unfortunately, as far as I know, it's not possible at the moment to show anything but the complete URL, but it's an excellent idea!
Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.
I hope that helps!
Have a fantastic weekend!
