Search for Hyperlink

Is there any way to search a sheet for a URL, if it is included in a hyperlink? The URL does not appear on the sheet, the text for the hyperlink does instead. I tried searching, given a URL, and its not finding anything on my sheets.

Any workaround for this? Perhaps there is a way to create a hidden column and a formula of sort that parses out the URL, so the URL can be searched via the hidden field?

    It's not currently possible to search for a URL within a sheet if it has been hyperlinked and has a display value. Using a formula also wouldn't work since the formula will only take the display value into account.

    When you have a moment, please submit a Product Enhancement Request to let our Product team know that you'd like to have this functionality in Smartsheet.
