Custom Field HTML Link

I need a Custom Field type to be "Link" whereby a HTML link becomes clickable.

 

Example Custom Fields:

Google Drive Folder

URL

etc

 

Currently, one must use TEXT type field, and manually copy/paste the HTML link.

Us as well! It would also be very useful to be able to create a link concatenated from another custom field, so for example, once we have created a video in our platform, we could put the id in the "video id" custom field, and have that populate a link to the video edit page in our platform. This would rocket up our efficiency!

@wrike... Any updates since April?

Hey everyone, thank you for sharing your feedback here.

While the Product team are interested in this suggestion, there are currently no plans to add this feature to the short-term roadmap. If anything changes, I'll be sure to let you know.

We would also like this functionality as a custom field for shipment tracking URLs that we use all the time in our projects.  It's much faster to put in a URL that links directly to the tracking number in the carrier's system (i.e. UPS, FedEx, XPO, etc) than to provide the team the tracking number that they need to manually enter online each time they want to pull up tracking. 

I know that it's a feature in the comments and description to add hyperlinks, but it would be nice to have that link populate into Table, Reports, and Dashboard views for quick access rather than navigating into each task for the info.  Please consider adding this simple hyperlink functionality soon!

I would echo the request - hyper link for the custom fields and description would be very useful.

Hi Wrike Community Team moderator(s)... the request for this incredibly-basic functionality was made in  2 0 1 7 .

From what I can gather in this thread, Wrike's response has repeatedly been, in general, "We'll write you this vague-interest message with no commitment to ever get back to you with a reason why this has floundered into its FIFTH year."

The only plausible explanation here is that Wrike knows this is a point of incredible dissatisfaction for its customers (one that is ridiculous on almost every level) except if spreadsheet makers are paying Wrike to keep from introducing it.  My team has to turn to spreadsheets rather than use Wrike because this stone-age "feature" is missing.

This is what Wrike customers have to do, make up stories, because Wrike won't be transparent with the hands that feed it.

Welcome to the Community Doug Hartley! First of all, thank you for reaching out and letting us know your feedback here. It's true when we say that we pass on the feedback and the vote count here, you can read more about what happens with your feedback here. In short, we check with the team regularly to see if there are any changes planned by the team. Some of the Community suggestions get implemented into the Product (you can check the pinned threads in the Product Feedback forum to check out last year's launched ideas), but the team always has to prioritize feedback over various factors and they can't commit to implementing every suggestion on this forum (even though they'd love to be able to do that). 

I'm checking with the team now to see if there are any updates regarding this particular idea and I'll let you know once I hear from them 👍

Just think about it: Wrike is a web-based application. Everything today is web-linked.
We go from one place to another using... links. 

Having intelligent links in Wrike itself as custom field is a no-brainer.

We currently use Wrike as our development task engine, to develop new features but also as our issue database. Being able to store in a custom field an orderID, and then magically get a URL back to view that actual order would be such a life saver.

And all it takes is... CONCATENATE two STRINGs in a calculated field.

Why is this not on your list of "high-value, absolute low cost" features? Please...

I understood the original request as to be even less... But maybe you interpretation shows that the solution may be understood as complex to be valuable. Which I would not see this way. Allowing a click on a value (being a complete absolute http/https url) shown in a table view to open the link behind would do a first job. 

Such attributes could simply be defined to behave as such (e.g. a new type url or link) or be even only flagged (e.g. "Show as link in Table view"). 

At a later stage there could be enhancement like

  • Allowing display values
  • Calculate links
  • Support links also for list view or Gantt view

But from my point of view this is all optional. Links in Table View would provide a lot of benefit with nearly no efforts/side effect.

Agree 100% with both Wim and Andreas. It doesn't have to be complicated.
