how to hyperlink text in table with another url field?

Hi,

 

I have two columns namely, 1- content name and 2-the web url/hyperlink.

How can I overlay the url such that the content name is clickable?

 

Should I create a new measure or  a column to capture this?

 

Thanks

It sounds like you already have the columns you need in column 1 and 2. Just put them both in a table and format using conditional formatting.

EDIT: You actually only need to put the link text/description in the table, and apply conditional formatting to it by using field value and choosing URL as the field, first, ok.

Make sure the link is formatted properly:
URLS must start with one of the following:

http
https
-mailto
file
ftp
news
telnet

Hi, @saipawar 

 

Based on your description, I created data to reproduce your scenario. The pbix file is attached in the end. 

Table:

You may create a table visual and then go to 'Visualizations'=>'Format'=>'Conditional formatting'=>set the 'Web URL' for 'Name' as 'On'.

Finally you may click the corresponding 'Name' to go to specific link.
