web url not working when the implicit measure is disable in power bi

Hi, I know that when using calculation group, implicit  measure need to enable. The problem is when I apply Web URL to value in a matrix or a column in table, it doens't allow me to click OK as it doesn't allow aggregation like below.




Where if I enable implicit measure, it works as it can work out the first or last value in aggregation.




This is a major drawback with calculation group.  URL is such an amazing thing to link up power bi with other App. 


It is a bug I reckon that needs to be fixed!

The funny workaround is

1. delete the calculation group, 

2enable implicit measure,

3.put the url back on

4. undo the step 1 and 2. 


Sound ridiculous but it works. Hope MS will give a better solution on this.

Hi @gavin007 ,


I think you can try to select "Uncategorized" in Data Category to web url value. And then enable implicit measure in calculation group. Finally, select "Web Url" to the web url value.
