Hey folks! In this quick tutorial, I’m going to cover how you can extract the URL to a particular record. One use case for this would be if you are sending emails / Slack / Teams messages about records being updated, you can include a link to the original record in the message.
In this instance, I’m using Stacker Tables, but this should work for any data source.
We’re going to use a formula field, along with the CONCAT function (help docs), which brings together two bits of text (or numbers) into one. In this case, we’ll be concatenating two things:
- The link to the table in Stacker with /view/ added on the end
- The record ID for the individual record
We’re going to use this formula:
Here’s how it looks in my sample app:
and if it has worked, you should end up with a list of URLs:
Ta-da! Now you can use these URLs as you wish
