    I edited the tags on your discussion for parity with the content of your post.

    To address a few of the items on your bullet point list:

    • I'm not sure what you mean by "Fix the link to sheet bug not showing as a URL/link." Can you provide more information or maybe link me to a community thread?
    • Can you provide me with more information on this as well? I'm not sure what you mean—what are you trying to fix? Unable to unlink what, specifically? Provide me with the exact steps you're taking in Smartsheet.

    With the first one - the only way to make a link show is as a link in a report widgit on a sight is with a URL vs link to another sheet.

    With the second - if you generate a link, remove it, then click or it doesn't allow you too. You have to just delete the text in the cell and start over (see attached).  I put in a URL link, deleted it, clicked ok.  It forces me to put in a value.  If I select the link to a Link to other Smartsheet it still sees the top box as empty and errors.

    On the second one—thanks for elaborating. Although it's not as elegant, you can select the cell, right-click and select Copy, right-click the same cell again and select Paste Special > Values.

    This will paste the "display text" over the hyperlink, removing the hyperlink.

    On the first one—I'm still trying to understand you. Are you trying to display a sheet link as a URL instead of with the name of the sheet as display text? If that's the case, the behavior you're seeing isn't a bug, this is expected functionality. If you need to display a URL to the sheet, open that sheet, right-click that sheet's name at the top and select Properties. Then highlight and copy the "Secure Sheet Link" (using Ctrl+C) and paste it into your desired cell.
